Accelerating the adoption of portable stimulus

The vision of portable stimulus is to find a way to write tests that can be portable ‘vertically’ from IP block to subsystem to system, and ‘horizontally’ from simulation to emulation to silicon. However, applying portable stimulus to real chip designs is not trivial.
