SVUnit is an open-source test framework for ASIC and FPGA developers writing Verilog/SystemVerilog code. SVUnit is automated, fast, lightweight and easy to use making it the only SystemVerilog test framework in existence suited to both design and verification engineers that aspire to high quality code and low bug rates.

Step-by-step instructions to get a first unit test going

1. Set up the SVUNIT_INSTALL and PATH environment variables

export SVUNIT_INSTALL=`pwd`

You can source Setup.bsh if you use the bash shell.

source Setup.bsh

You can source Setup.csh if you use the csh shell.

source Setup.csh

2. Go somewhere outside SVUNIT_INSTALL (i.e. where you are right now)

Start a class-under-test:

// file:
class bogus;

3. Generate the unit test

4. Add tests using the helper macros

// file:

  // Unit test: test_mytest


5. Run the unit tests

runSVUnit -s <simulator> # simulator is ius, questa, modelsim, riviera or vcs

6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until done

7. Pat self on back
