With the approval of the IEEE 1800.2 UVM Standard, and the new Reference Implementation from Accellera, UVM has reached its peak as the dominant verification methodology available. This session will start with an overview of the changes in UVM 1800.2 from UVM 1.2 and 1.1d so you can be prepared to embrace the new Standard. To accompany this release, we have updated the online UVM Cookbook both to take advantage of some of the new features in UVM and also to guide you in creating testbenches that can be reused in all available engines, including emulation. We will also see how the UVM Framework will automatically build your environment according to these new guidelines, letting you get a UVM environment up and running in just a few hours. Even if you’ve been using UVM for years, we’ll show you how you can be even more efficient and portable in creating your UVM environment.
