The open ISA of RISC-V permits may optional configurations and microarchitectural choices plus the options to add custom extensions. This provides designers and system architects freedom to explore optimized designs across almost all market segments. The verification challenge can be addressed with a number of approaches. This talk will give the latest updates to the RISC-V compliance test suite, which was developed with the free riscvOVPsim reference model, the use of an open source instruction stream generator and UVM methodologies based on a SystemVerilog encapsulated RISC-V reference model for step-and-compare verification efficiency. These techniques will be illustrated with results from testing some popular open source cores. This can be a guide to starting your next project with RISC-V, either testing the complete processor or custom extensions.
