Hi all,I've created a tutorial showing how to use the Avalon-MM Master BFM within SystemVerilog and VHDL testbenches. https://www.ovro.caltech.edu/~dwh/correlator/pdf/altera_avalon_bfm_master.pdf https://www.ovro.caltech.edu/~dwh/correlator/pdf/altera_avalon_bfm_master.zip Feedback welcome! Cheers, Dave PS. If any SystemVerilog Gurus read this, Appendix A has a question for you :)

Hi all,I've added another appendix to the document showing how Qsys VHDL abuses the use of VHDL libraries. VHDL gurus please feel free to agree or disagree with my comments :) Cheers, Dave

Your tutorial is still the best starting point for using Avalon BFMs. Thanks!Since simulation performance using VHDL is questionable UVVM might be more interesting for VHDL users than the concept used by Altera/Intel. UVVM just added full Avalon MM support. UVVM stands for Universal VHDL Verification Methodology and was released as open source by the Norwegian company bitvis. You may find it on github: https://github.com/uvvm/uvvm_vvc_framework There is a web page also: http://www.bitvis.no/products/uvvm/ UVVM can be combined with OSVVM (http://osvvm.org/) as far as I know.
