About Me

Hi, welcome to my tech blog, let me start by telling you something about myself. My name is Subash Chandra Nayak ... ppl prefer to call me Nayak. I am 23 year old guy currently in my 5th year Dual Degree (BTech + MTech) course at IIT Kharagpur. I am doing my BTech in Electronics and Electrical Communication Engineering with MTech specialization in Automation and Computer Vision.

I am originally from a small village near Sambalpur, which is situated at the western part of Orissa. I have grown up in a rural background far from the rush and run of city-life. I have thoroughly enjoyed the bliss of green and pure environment, the simple living style of rural people. My father is a farmer. My mother is a good housewife and a brilliant homemaker. I too have a small brother .

I have done my schooling up to class X in a small rural school near my village. Then I went to GM College , Sambalpur, one of the best college in Orissa, for class XI and XII. Finally I have come IIT Kharagpur to do my BTech after qualifying in IIT-JEE. I am at the end of my KGP days after spending 5 best years of my life. Me got placed at nVidia Bangalore, and will be joining there after completion of my degree at IIT Kharagpur

My Hobbies

My hobbies?.......Hmmm... Swimming, Water polo, Programming, Web Designing (a little bit). Very recently I have started watching movies (preferebly imdb top 250), reading novels, and jogging (to burn extra accumulated fats).

Swimming....It's my life. I knew swimming before I went for class I. I spend around 1-2 hours a day in swimming pool. My favorite stroke is Back-stroke. I have a keen interest in Water-polo. During winter when swimming pool is closed I usually go for light exercise like jogging. I know little bit of web designing, enough of HTML/Javascript to tweak my blogs and homepage, to explore my artistic side. I am a geek

If you are interested in my CV, then look here. (Coming Soon) Who am I? Writing about myself is a bit difficult task for me. But taking clue from anildigital's this post, i am rather writing "100 things about me" !!!!

    Hello every one,
    I am using VCS Synopsys tool with UNIX base to run the Verilog PLI using VPI routines.
    Please see the three files titled add.v (verilog module), add.c(C function which is to be invoked in verilog), and add.tab file.

    ADD.C file

    #include "vcsuser.h"
    #include "acc_user.h"
    #include "vcs_acc_user.h"
    #include "vpi_user.h"

    PLI_INT32 PLIbook_Showval_compiletf(),PLIbook_Showval_calltf();

    void PLIbook_Showval_register()
    s_vpi_systf_data tf_data;

    vpiHandle systf_handle,arg_iterator,arg_handle;
    PLI_INT32 arg_type;

    vpi_printf("Error:$Show_value failed to obtain the systf handlen");

    vpi_printf("Need atleast one argumentn");}

    arg_type = vpi_get(vpiType,arg_handle);
    if(arg_type!=vpiNet && arg_type!=vpiReg){
    vpi_printf("Not a valid argumentnarg_type=%sn",arg_type);


    if(arg_handle != NULL){
    vpi_printf("ERROR:$show_value can only have 1 argumentn");

    vpiHandle systf_handle,arg_iterator,arg_handle,net_handle;
    s_vpi_value current_value;
    vpi_printf("Signal %s",vpi_get_str(vpiFullName,net_handle));
    vpi_printf("has the value %sn",current_value.value.str);

    ADD.V file

    module add_test;
    reg a,b,ci,clk;
    wire sum,co;
    initial begin
    #10 a=1;
    #10 b=1;
    #10 $stop;
    always #5 clk = ~clk;
    addbit a1(a,b,ci,sum,co,clk);

    input a,b,ci,clk;
    output sum,co;
    reg sum,co;
    always @(posedge clk)begin

    ADD.TAB file

    $show_value call=show_value acc=rw:*

    I have run the code using following command in VCS.

    vcs -P add.tab add.v add.c -R +vpi -CFLAGS

    And i got the error look like
    " Undefined reference to 'show_value'
    Make exited with status 2"

    There are two vpi routines used in the C code.
    I know the problem that, I have used $show_value in verilog code and there is no function titled $show_value in C code.
    So can any one tell me that where am i suppose to put or write the $show_value function and what it should be.
    If any one knows then there will be a great help.
