As complexity and the number of clock domains increase in today’s ASIC designs, we are moving towards a hierarchical verification approach. This tutorial covers the proven clock domain crossings (CDC) and Reset Domain Crossing (RDC) schemes, the verification challenges, and the potential risk mitigation strategies. We will then discuss the hierarchical CDC/RDC verification methodology, the tradeoffs faced when incorporating units from multiple sources, and the challenges when integrating multiple vendor-generated abstracted blocks into an encompassing design. To mitigate these issues, we introduce the Accellera CDC committee, highlight the released CDC standard, and summarize the status of the current efforts.
