PeakRDL is a free and open-source control & status register (CSR) toolchain. This projects provides a command-line tool that unifies many aspects of register automation centered around the SystemRDL register description language.

This tool can:

  • Process SystemRDL 2.0 register descriptions.

  • Import & export IP-XACT XML.

  • Generate synthesizable SystemVerilog RTL register blocks.

  • Create rich and dynamic HTML documentation.

  • Build a UVM register model abstraction layer.

  • … or extended this tool with your own plugins


The PeakRDL command line tool is still in pre-production (v0.x version numbers). During this time, I may decide to refactor things which could break compatibility.
