  • Abstract Nowadays, because the advance of the technology, a single chip can contain more and more Intellectual Property(IP). As the design increase with the IPs from different designer, intercommunication in System-on-Chip(SoC) becomes more complicated and rarely error-free. This cause the verification and integration more difficult. Although RTL simulation is error-free, there may also have some bug on FPGA or post-silicon. It is important to focus on the monitor and debug method while designing the chip. The monitor is hard-wired in the chip that cannot be changed. We must replace the monitor or add more hardware if the designer wants to monitor other rules or condition. It may cause the hardware cost increase or need unrealistic change. Therefore, we have proposed a Reconfigurable Bus Monitor (RBM) to solve this problem. With the reconfigurable ability to decrease the cost of hardware design. However, the flexibility will also cause a huge area cost. Therefore, we combine the rule checking result inside the RBM and proposed an assertion analysis algorithm to help debugger to generate RBM which has more optimize area cost. The proposed method get the balance between hardware area cost and debugging time.
