Hardware behavior is made more configurable through control registers, and the verification of these registers has become one of the primary items in the to-do list of any design. It is quite pointless to test any other feature of a design if we cannot access/modify its register bits to change any of its functionality. Registers are typically accessed using low-bandwidth bus protocols like AMBA Advanced Peripehral Bus, IBM On-Chip Peripheral Bus or something similar developed in-house by a semiconductor firm. It's because of these registers that software can exercise greater control on the overall behavior of the chip, and most design specifications have a number of pages detailing the functionalities of each bit of every register.
