Aldec Adds UVM Transaction-Level Visual Debugging

HENDERSON, Nev. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 11, 2011 — Aldec, Inc. today announced expanded support for the Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) with comprehensive transaction-level visual debugging. The new capabilities for transactions recording and visualization enable engineers to utilize Riviera-PRO 2011.06 advanced debugging infrastructure without having to manage basic mechanisms for transactions handling.

"Our UVM 1.0 implementation combines the proven debugging capabilities of Riviera-PRO with an industry-standard approach to building reusable and expandable verification environments, providing a more natural way for engineers to comprehend and debug sophisticated verification environments," said Dave Rinehart, Vice President, Aldec, Inc.

Riviera-PRO allows analyzing transaction data using the existing Waveform Viewer tool together with the new Transaction Data Viewer that represents transactions as a spreadsheet that offers rich navigation and filtering capabilities. All the debugging tools are well integrated with each other and allow for efficient analysis of transaction-level information, including the cross-probing and viewing of transaction attributes, relations and linked signals. Based on such a broad range of information about the interactions between testbench and design under test, Riviera-PRO users have extensive visibility into their verification environments.

The new UVM 1.0 transaction-level debugging capabilities are immediately available with the latest release of Riviera-PRO 2011.06 at no cost to customers with a valid maintenance contract and SystemVerilog verification support.
