A testbench need not be a monolithic block. Although Figure 1–1 shows the testbench as a large thing that surrounds the design under verification, it need not be implemented that way. The design is also shown in a single block, and it is surely not implemented as a single unit. Why should the testbench by any different? Figure 6–1 depicts the architecture of a generic testbench. In this chapter, I will describe how to implement each component.
