High quality verification is crucial to any HW IP development and in particular for open-source processor cores. Industry quality, coverage driven verification is essential as is leveraging commercial tools, flows and simulators.  These are "must haves" in order for open-source IP to be adopted by leading semiconductor companies for use in high volume SoCs. This talk provides details of the CORE-V Verification Test Bench, an open-source 'step & compare' System Verilog / UVM environment built by the OpenHW Group ecosystem leveraging the Imperas RISC-V Golden Reference Model and the Metrics Cloud-based EDA Platform.
