Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) has experienced great adoption and been a tremendous success throughout the verification industry since the first release of UVM in early 2011. UVM was proved a 486% strong growth in adoption between 2010 and 2012 based on study of the Wilson Research Group. UVM skill set usually becomes from a plus to a must when hiring of verification engineers. 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.
UVM methodology takes another step forward with the next version of UVM labelled 1.2 in 2014. UVM-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.
This presentation will share notable changes in UVM-1.2 and migration challenges to help users adopt UVM-1.2 more easily.
