Birds of a Feather: UVM Feedback Session

UVM - Universal Verification Methodology

Presented at DVCon U.S. 2021

The Accellera UVM Working Group has recently delivered a UVM library to match the IEEE 1800.2-2020 specification and is now considering which enhancements and bug fixes to work on next that would most benefit the user community. A complication is that many in the user community are still using older versions of UVM and so would not benefit from improvements to the 1800.2-2020 library. At a Birds of a Feather session at DVCon U.S. 2021, the working group gathered feedback from the user community through polling and a live Q&A to understand what could be done to help users get to 1800.2-2020 as well as what types of improvements would be the most useful.

In the presentation, members of the working group go through a brief history of UVM development in order to understand how they ended up with various versions that are not 100% compatible with each other.  They present the ideas that the working group is considering to expedite migration to the latest version and the ideas for future enhancements.
