Preview the “Advanced Verification Topics” UVM book from Cadence Press
April 9th, 2012 by Graham Bell
Cadence Press just introduced a new title on Advanced Verification Topics by Bishnupriya Bhattacharya and contributors. Here is a small quote from what Adam Sherer, Cadence Product Marketing Director, said in the Preface to the book:
Consumers may perceive that “it’s a digital world,” but these advanced verification topics speak to the magic that goes on under the hood of every SoC. As verification engineering managers and team leaders, we know that MDV, multi-language VIP, low-power, mixed-signal, and acceleration topics are converging at 20 nm and beyond; but we don’t want to create whole new methodologies for each one. The authors of this book realized this, and selected the Accellera UVM standard as the common base from which to offer solutions that leverage reuse and raise team-level productivity. That’s why we have written this book—not only for verification engineers familiar with the UVM and the benefits it brings to digital verification, but also for verification engineers who need to tackle these advanced tasks. Though the solutions in this book are not standardized, most of them are available through open-source code. For all of you, the material in this Advanced Verification Topics book is provided as a means to stay productive and profitable in the face of growing verification complexity.
