Accellera at DAC: Defining a Universal Verification Methodology

Monday, June 7th, 2010

First of all, we’d like to invite all the DAC attendees to Accellera’s breakfast and panel about UVM: Charting a New Course on Tuesday, June 15, 7:30 am – 9:00 am, Room 203B in Convention Center.

It is no news when one talks about increasing complexity of designing the SoC devices. It is a foregone conclusion that designing is a relatively bounded problem compared to verification. Just as design reuse through Semiconductor IP (aka design IP) helped bring the designers up the productivity curve, in the last decade Verification IP (VIP) has done the same for the verification engineers. Two leading methodologies, Verification Methodology Manual (VMM) and Open Verification Methodology (OVM), helped accelerate the adoption of structured verification methodologies using SystemVerilog as well as the creation of commercially available verification IP to independently validate integration of design IP in SoCs. Essentially, both methodologies are a collection of SystemVerilog classes with inherent semantics for their behavior in different phases of the simulation. The user creates verification objects from these classes and attaches them to the design components as traffic/data generators, monitors, checkers, etc.
