But how good are the results of these tools. I ofter heard from people experimenting with autogenerators/translators, that the effort correcting the results of them was higher than the manual porting. At which level are these statements correct? And how matured are those tools nowadays?
There were a few constructs depracated, but that was because they were very rarely used. SV should accept all legal Verilog except for those. Sorry I am not of the list of features that were depracted.
What are compatability / portability issues? Say I have a design from 2006 that a customer wants to use as a baseline and add features and functions to today in SystemVerilog, with the code as a deliverable?
There was a question about SystemC having a hole. Not sure I understood the question.
I was reffering to the "design gap" between a systemC model and the porting towards HDL. If I understood the 'caveats' slide correctly, I'd assume that there exists a similar gap regarding the workflow inbetween the single parts of the systemverilog language as well. Or ist more complete (OOP -> RTL)?
what is the difference between UVM and systemverilog standard class based verification? Can I use these methods to verify a small design ? I need to get started with systemverilog and looking forward to know how to get handson ?
Has constraint compilation improved with the use of SV? I remember with Specman (e) that sometimes the tool would try to resolve your random constraints for 30min, only to let you know at the end that you had a deadlock...
The big difference is the way it does checking and the default condition. Impllied registers used to be created for cases that were not covered and that was nnot always wanted."comb" says there should be no register.
Ah Superlog. Some of my old buddies were at that company - the original Hilo team. Phil Moorbey then left the team and created a new version that was called AidSim. Anyone want to guess what it was renamed when the aids epidemic hit the headlines?

@brian_bailey: I'm just here for the chat this early. Sometimes there are some good questions asked. Other times we talk about coffee. I don't have an espresso machine. And I'm happy they took out the sugar alcohol from the sugar free coffee flavors. Sugar alcohol is still sugar and I'm on insulin.
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Biomimicry has already found its way into the development of robots and new materials, with researchers studying animals and nature to come up with new innovations. Now thanks to researchers in Boston, biomimicry could even inform the future of electrical networks for next-generation displays.
