Dennis Brophy It is time to talk about what happens next with UVM The Design and Verification Conference (DVCon) has become the premier event to discuss front-end design issues with an emphasis on verification.  If one listens to the Conversation Central interview of DVCon leadership it is clear how singularly important DVCon is.  As one of the three organizers of the UVM Tutorial on Monday, I know the conference … Read More

Dennis Brophy Wally Rhines DVCon 2011 Keynote Highlights Survey on Verification Languages OK, maybe it is not the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius, but Wally Rhines’ DVCon 2011 keynote did have a slide titled “SystemVerilog in the Ascendancy.”  It is not a word I see or use much.  In fact, Google labs’ “Book Ngram Viewer” shows ascendancy has been in decline since around 1825. It struck me that the title was tending … Read More

Dennis Brophy Open SystemC Initiative Tackles the Future If you have examined the DVCon program, you know that it is a week full of the Universal Verification Methodology (UVM).  And I certainly encourage those with an interest in UVM to attend the Monday tutorial and the technical conference the next few days.  But you may also want to bring a colleague to attend the SystemC Day activities. For SystemC Day at DVCon, … Read More

Dennis Brophy Standard Co-Emulation Modeling Interface (SCE-MI) 2.1 Improves Verification Productivity The Accellera Interface Technical Subcommittee (ITC) completed version 2.1 of the standard used to interface software and hardware-based verification technology.  With SCE-MI, models can be developed for simulation to run in an emulation environment and visa versa. The major addition to SCE-MI 2.1 is support for … Read More

Dennis Brophy UVM Layering Package updated from OVM Layering Package In an earlier blog post, I discussed a sequence layering technique that Mentor verification technologists had created and presented on at DVCon 2010, based on OVM.  This package has been updated and tested to work with UVM 1.0 EA and is ready for download. As a reminder, the UVM Layering 1.0 Package, like the OVM one, provides the means to add … Read More

Dennis Brophy Download Now A new OVM Layering Package that provides a means to add layers of tests (sequences) without modifying the underlying testbench and without extending components or using the factory to override implementation is available for download. The DVCon 2010 paper on this topic, You Are In a Maze of Twisty Little Sequences, All Alike – or Layering Sequences for Stimulus Abstraction, is also … Read More

Tom Fitzpatrick Hi Gang, As you may know, in addition to my duties here at Mentor, I’m also the General Chair of DVCon 2010. So it is with two hats on that I encourage you to check out the DVCon website. With my “General Chair hat” on, I’d like to point out that we’ve actually expanded the conference to add an extra set of half-day tutorials on Monday afternoon, Feb. 22. That’s right! While other conferences are … Read More

Russ Klein The inspiration for this week’s blog entry comes from a comment left by Jason Andrews from Cadence. Jason is an all around good guy who has been working this area of hardware and software for quite a few years, too. Here’s a link to his blog over in Cadence-land – Jason Andrew’s Blog. Anyway, Jason pointed out that the EDA companies need to get with the program and realize that software is a part … Read More
