This report addresses the challenges of synchro- nizing stimuli in a logic verification environment, and proposes a specific software methodology, the Unit-Sim SyncManager, embedded within the logic simulation control system to allow simulation sce- narios to achieve cycle accurate synchronization of stimuli. The Unit-Sim SyncManager is a set of C++ classes that, when used in conjunction with the Motorola Somerset Unit-Sim simulation environ- ment, provides a mechanism for accurately synchro- nizing interface transactions across any number of interfaces based on a set of defined transaction dependencies.
