Why is OVM and Hardware Acceleration Such a Viable Solution



This webinar will explain a simple solution to address the challenge of employing hardware acceleration in conjunction with transaction-based testbenches.

A real example, together with the benchmark data showing the performance advantages, will be discussed. OVM promotes the use of untimed transaction-based testbenches for simulation and such an approach can be complimentary with hardware acceleration for both high performance and effective creation of system testbenches.

What You Will Learn

  • The advantages of an OVM transaction-based testbench
  • The advantages of hardware acceleration for verification
  • How to combine these two techniques effectively
