ALERT_ESC UVM Agent is extended from DV library agent classes.
This agent implements both alert(alert_rx, alert_tx) and escalation (esc_rx, esc_tx) interface protocols, and can be configured to behave in both host and device modes. For design documentation, please refer to alert_handler spec.
Alert agent supports both synchronous and asynchronous modes.
Alert Device Agent
For IPs that send out alerts, it is recommended to attach alert device agents to the block level testbench. Please refer to cip_lib documentation regarding instructions to configure alert device agent in DV testbenches.
