Title:UVM Best Practices & Debug

Abstract:  UVM (Universal Verification Methodology) tends to be a popular way to develop and reuse verification environments in IC world. It effectively guides users on how to build testbench architecture by components, sequences, TLMs, etc., and how to control the simulation flow by phasing. However, the UVM standard SystemVerilog class library with hundreds of classes provides users mass information, which is a big challenge to users. Thus this presentation demonstrates some UVM best practices to use UVM library class, and moreover, it introduces an effective way to debug UVM testbench by VCS DVE and Verdi.
