Abstract

Disclosed is a method for combining and controlling manual and random stimulus for hardware verification. Typically, a hardware verification testcase is either manual or random, but not both. Running a set of manual transactions along with random transactions provides better testing, but is often difficult to control. This disclosure addresses these problems by controlling manual and random stimulus through the same testcase interface.
