Overview

The Verilog Programming Language Interface is a powerful feature of the Verilog standard. Through this interface, a Verilog simulator can be customized to perform virtually any engineering task desired, such as adding custom design debug utilities, adding proprietary file read/write utilities, and interfacing bus functional C language models to a simulator.
This book serves as both a user's guide for learning the Verilog PLI, and as a comprehensive reference manual on the Verilog PLI standard. Both the TF/ACC ("PLI 1.0") and the VPI ("PLI 2.0") generations of the PLI are presented, based on the IEEE 1364 Verilog standard. The second edition of this book adds detailed coverage of the many enhancements added in the latest IEEE 1364-2001 Verilog standard ("Verilog-2001").

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Verilog PLI Handbook is the best book written about the PLI. Use it once, and it will pay for itself by saving you a great deal of time. The book brings clarity to the Verilog Programming Language Interface. The descriptions and extensive examples shed new light on the many dark corners of the PLI. Stuart Sutherland has produced the definitive guide, covering all versions and uses for the PLI. I recommend this book to all Verilog users who want to learn about the PLI."
