Title: UVM1.2:  What’s Now and What’s Next

Abstract: Since the first release of UVM in early 2011 it has been a tremendous success throughout the verification industry. Today it’s the defacto standard for any functional verification activity. A key point for UVM is that a lot of focus is being put upon backward compatibility with any change applied to the UVM core library. Lots of enhancements to the library have been deferred in order to avoid migration problems. The next version of UVM labelled 1.2 is the first release since the initial release of UVM-1.0 which will have new facilities, enhancements and capabilities NOT API compatible with the older UVM versions. The presentation will help you to better understand the differences between UVM12/UVM10 and the estimate effort/path to migrate to UVM-1.2. In addition we will be outlining core simulator debug capabilities targeting UVM facilities enabling a much faster debug and analysis of UVM based test cases.
