ovm_*_export #(T)

The unidirectional ovm_*_export is a port that forwards or promotes an interface implementation from a child component to its parent.  An export can be connected to any compatible child export or imp port.  It must ultimately be connected to at least one implementation of its associated interface.

The interface type represented by the asterisk is any of the following

blocking_put
nonblocking_put
put

blocking_get
nonblocking_get
get

blocking_peek
nonblocking_peek
peek

blocking_get_peek
nonblocking_get_peek
get_peek

Type parameters

TThe type of transaction to be communicated by the export

Exports are connected to interface implementations directly via ovm_*_imp #(T,IMP) ports or indirectly via other ovm_*_export #(T) exports.

Summary
ovm_*_export #(T)
The unidirectional ovm_*_export is a port that forwards or promotes an interface implementation from a child component to its parent.
Methods
newThe name and parent are the standard ovm_component constructor arguments.

new

The name and parent are the standard ovm_component constructor arguments.  The min_size and max_size specify the minimum and maximum number of interfaces that must have been supplied to this port by the end of elaboration.

function new (string name,
              ovm_component parent,
              int min_size=1,
              int max_size=1)

ovm_*_export #(REQ,RSP)

The bidirectional ovm_*_export is a port that forwards or promotes an interface implementation from a child component to its parent.  An export can be connected to any compatible child export or imp port.  It must ultimately be connected to at least one implementation of its associated interface.

The interface type represented by the asterisk is any of the following

blocking_transport
nonblocking_transport
transport

blocking_master
nonblocking_master
master

blocking_slave
nonblocking_slave
slave

Type parameters

REQThe type of request transaction to be communicated by the export
RSPThe type of response transaction to be communicated by the export

Exports are connected to interface implementations directly via <ovm_*_imp #(REQ,RSP,IMP)> ports or indirectly via other ovm_*_export #(REQ,RSP) exports.
