As 2010 ends and 2011 begins, the most important thing that came out of the Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) was the UVM Reference Flow. We are thrilled with the results coming from this community contribution. With over 1,000 downloads already, it is clear that UVM has moved into the mainstream -- not a bad year at all. Not only will the UVM libraries officially be released from Accellera after a significant amount of work, but alignment around an official register package is complete.
Developers interested in using the free UVM Reference Flow should go into the contributions section of http://www.uvmworld.org/ for the download. If you're not sure what it actually is, there is a webinar just completed with EETimes which describes the reference and provides a quick demo. You can see the pre-recorded demo - "Maximizing your investment in the UVM" at this location: http://www.eetimes.com/electrical-engineers/education-training/webinars/4210986/Maximizing-Your-Investment-in-the-UVM
So what's next for UVM developers? Well, how about some additional utilities supporting the UVM? If you have not yet used the UVM Eclipse Based integrated development environment (IDE) from AMIQ called DVT, you should check it out. There is a great new concept of predefined projects within DVT, making the UVM Reference Flow easier to use. Specifically, DVT now ships with pre-configured projects. Once you have DVT installed, in just 2 clicks you can start exploring the reference flow, look at the code, see a diagram, and launch a simulation. DVT is also fully integrated with a compliance checklist for UVM, just to make sure you using legal constructs of the UVM code. Go to the AMIQ website at http://www.dvteclipse.com/ for more details on DVT.
