Functional verification project for the CORE-V family of RISC-V cores.


2020-12-16: The cv32e40p_v1.0.0 of core-v-verif is released. This tag clones the v1.0.0 release of the CV32E40P CORE-V core and will allow you to reproduce the verification environment as it existed at RTl Freeze.
More news is available in the archive.

Getting Started

First, have a look at the OpenHW Group's website to learn a bit more about who we are and what we are doing.

Reading the Verification Strategy is strongly recommended.

Getting started with CV32E40P

If you want to run a simulation there are two options:

  1. To run the CORE testbench, go to cv32e40p/sim/core and read the README.
  2. To run the CV32E40P UVM environment, go to cv32e40p/sim/uvmt and read the README.

CV32E40P coverage data

The most recently published coverage report for the CV32E40P can be found here.

Getting started with CVA6

To run CVA6 testbench, go to cva6 directory and read the README.
