Documentation

PCIe BFM

A MyHDL transaction layer PCI Express bus functional model (BFM) is included in pcie.py. This BFM implements an extensive event driven simulation of a complete PCI express system, including root complex, switches, devices, and functions, including support for configuration spaces, capabilities and extended capabilities, and memory and IO operations between devices. The BFM includes code to enumerate the bus, initialize configuration space registers and allocate BARs, route messages between devices, perform memory read and write operations, allocate DMA accessible memory regions in the root complex, and handle message signaled interrupts. Any module can be connected to a cosimulated design, enabling testing of not only isolated components and host-device communication but also communication between multiple components such as device-to-device DMA and message passing.

A MyHDL model of the Xilinx Ultrascale PCIe hard core is included in pcie_us.py. This module can be used in combination with the PCIe BFM to test a MyHDL or Verilog design that targets a Xilinx Ultrascale FPGA. The model currently only supports operation as a device, not as a root port.

Testing

Running the included testbenches requires MyHDL and Icarus Verilog. Make sure that myhdl.vpi is installed properly for cosimulation to work correctly. The testbenches can be run with a Python test runner like nose or py.test, or the individual test scripts can be run with python directly.
