TICTalk is a very simple set of commands that allows the development of validation programs for the AMBA blocks. The TICTalk language is a small library of C functions. When a TICTalk program is compiled and run, it produces a test input file in what is called the TIC Interface Format (TIF) which can be applied using the Ticbox module to test the desired block.

The TICTalk language performs these actions by combining together a number of basic commands. These commands are described in the following sections.
