UVM 2017-1.0 Now Available
New reference implementation is aligned with IEEE 1800.2
The Accellera Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) Working Group has released the UVM 2017-1.0 reference implementation. UVM 2017-1.0 is aligned with the IEEE 1800.2 standard and the enhancements that make it more powerful and easier to use. The working group has addressed some inconsistencies between the UVM Register Layer and other standards. It received a lot of feedback on the 0.9 release, and they were able to fix the bugs that were reported. UVM 2017-1.0 also includes full documentation of the API that is provided in addition to 1800.2-2017.
The UVM 2017-1.0 reference implementation can be downloaded for free from Accellera. The IEEE 1800.2-2017 standard is available free of charge from the IEEE Get program, courtesy of Accellera. Visit the UVM forum to provide feedback, ask questions, and engage in discussions. For more information on UVM, visit the UVM community page.
New UVM Technical Tutorial Available
On April 11, 2017, the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) approved the IEEE 1800.2™ Standard for Universal Verification Methodology (UVM). For the tens of thousands of UVM verification engineers, this milestone connects teams to a standard recognized worldwide. The new IEEE-Compatible UVM Reference Implementation and Verification Components technical tutorial introduces you to the new reference implementation aligned with IEEE 1800.2 and created by the Accellera UVM Working Group. The speakers use the new reference implementation to describe the new features and changes relative to UVM 1.2. Viewers will learn the steps they need to take to update their verification components to be IEEE-compatible. Code examples will help viewers gain the practical knowledge they need to adopt the IEEE 1800.2™ Standard for UVM. View tutorial >
Accellera Approves New Portable Test and Stimulus Standard
The Accellera Board of Directors has approved Portable Test and Stimulus 1.0 as an Accellera standard. The Portable Test and Stimulus Standard (PSS) defines a specification to create a single representation of stimulus and test scenarios usable by a variety of users across many levels of integration under different configurations. This representation facilitates the generation of diverse implementations of a scenario that run on a variety of execution platforms, including, but not necessarily limited to, simulation, emulation, FPGA prototyping, and post-silicon. With this standard, users can specify a set of behaviors once and observe consistent behavior across multiple implementations. The new standard is available immediately to download for free.
Release notes stating the differences between the Early Adopter II Release to the 1.0 standard are available. For more information, a press release and supporting industry quotes are also available. Accellera’s Portable Stimulus Community is also a resource for the latest information available on the new standard.
