“Using UVM Virtual Sequencers & Virtual Sequences”
What are virtual sequencers and virtualssequences and when should they be used? Tests that require coordinated generation of stimulus using multiple driving agents benefit from using virtual sequences. This presentation will clarify important concepts and usage techniques related to virtual sequencers and virtual sequences that are not well documented in existing UVM reference materials. This presentation will also detail the m_sequencer and p_sequencer handles and the macros and methods that are used with these handles. The objective of this presentation is to simplify the understanding of virtual sequencers, virtual sequences and how they work.
