LIVE WEBINAR: UVM for FPGAs (Part 4): IEEE 1800.2 UVM Updates (EU)

Srinivasan Venkataramanan, Entrepreneur and Head of VerifWorks

Thursday, October 7, 2021

3:00 PM – 4:00 PM CEST


Started with an early adaptor release as Accellera 1.0a, UVM has evolved into few significant versions including UVM 1.1 and UVM 1.2.  As with many popular useful standards, UVM has attained the coveted IEEE standardization in 2017. Interestingly, UVM is the first verification methodology to be standardized, and the current version is IEEE 1800.2-2020.

UVM is currently the most adopted industry standard in VLSI/Semiconductor design world. With decades of proven Best Known Methods (BKMs), UVM brings productivity to every team in short span of time. In this webinar, we will walk through UVM evolution over a decade in Accellera and then in IEEE since 2017. Some of the changes are backward incompatible and needs attention from users while migrating.
