Accellera Systems Initiative UVM 1.2 Proceeds to IEEE Standardization

New IEEE P1800.2 working group to fulfill Accellera objective of formal standardization for UVM

SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 2, 2015Accellera Systems Initiative (Accellera), the electronics industry organization focused on electronic design automation (EDA) and intellectual property (IP) standards, announced today that the Accellera Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) 1.2 standard is proceeding to IEEE standardization. Already proven in the electronics industry, the UVM standard will benefit from worldwide recognition and formalization, and will undergo the first step toward being language-agnostic with the formation of the P1800.2 working group. This work extends the ability of the UVM standard to improve interoperability and reduce the cost of IP development and reuse for each new electronics project.

The progression of the Accellera UVM standard to the IEEE P1800.2 working group meets the Accellera objective to accelerate standards and is aligned with the partnership between these organizations. Standardization in the IEEE brings worldwide recognition that is important to many globalized companies. It employs a rigorous development process that tightens the UVM standard and eliminates non-standard APIs formed during the rapid evolution of UVM, furthering the reuse goals of UVM users. Together, these benefits provide ongoing maintenance and globalization for UVM.

“UVM achieved industry-wide success by following the Accellera standard development approach,” said Tom Alsop, UVM Working Group co-chair. “Our team of Accellera member companies completed several cycles of standard development and reference implementations to create a proven standard. We are excited by the creation of the IEEE P1800.2 working group and look forward to the improvements that will be made to UVM as a result of the rigorous IEEE process.”

A supporting industry quote sheet and FAQ document are available.
