    I think if you have learnt system verilog .... then most of questions can be answered ......... You can refer to book Verification using System verilog by chris Spear.

    systemverilog interview questions

    I don't understand. Is this an interview-test, that the applicant is supposed to finish on-site? Or is it a 'take-me-home' test, that you submit online?

    These questions are pretty basic, but the test's comprehensiveness makes me think it's aimed at experienced systemverilog users. A beginner isn't going to remember everything about systemverilog in one sitting -- that only comes with real-world experience.

    Re: systemverilog interview questions post ur answers for these

    Can I not declare variables as rand or randc if the variables are inside a function within a class?/

    ex:
    class example
    ---
    ----
    function void test();
    rand integer x;
    endfunction
    endclass

    The above code gives me error saying rand cannot be used in this context. Is it because I cannot declare private or protected variables(variables inside the function test) as rand?

    please reply

    Re: systemverilog interview questions post ur answers for these

    Hi,
    No you cant do it .Its illegal. Class consists of data and routines to manipulate the data. Function and tasks are routines to manipulate the data .
    So Declare rand integer x before any routines .

    Thanks,
    Sunny
