Understanding the inner workings of UVM – Part 3

The whole environment of UVM is structured on phases. They are active right from the beginning of the simulation to the end of the simulation. This article from EDA Café highlights the key reason why UVM has different phases. Read More Join T&VS UVM training and learn how to improve the verification accuracy and quality [...]

Portable stimulus Smooths Path to SW-driven Verification, eliminates duplication

Taking a step-wise approach to verifying interactions between embedded processors and the IPs in the rest of the design saves time by finding bugs earlier in the verification process when they’re easiest to debug and correct. Portable stimulus allows high-quality tests to be generated from test intent that is described once and retargeted to multiple [...]

Rediscovering Coverage Insurance

Coverage is the determination of how much functionality of the design has been exercised by the verification environment.The coverage concern has put huge demands on engineering groups for high-quality and thorough verification whether it’s for safety or security or power. This article from Semiengineering outlines how the better coverage insurance can come from combining formal [...]

Leveraging UVM based UFS Test Suite approach for Accelerated Functional Verification

With the rapid development of modern mobile systems there is a great increase in the complexity involved in the IP and SoC designs and correspondingly the functional verification also becomes a challenge. To reduce time to market, IPs needed for the SoC must be developed and verified in parallel to the top-level design. This requires [...]

Hierarchical Sequences in UVM

Rising design complexity is leading to near exponential increase in verification efforts. The industry has embraced verification reuse by adopting UVM, deploying VIPs and plugging block level environment components at sub system or SoC level. This article from Any Silicon explores how hierarchical sequences’ in UVM suggests sequence development in a modular fashion to enable [...]
