Welcome Sharath Siddappa From Rambus, You Are The 5000th OVM World Registrant!

Comments(0)Filed under: Functional Verification, Testbench simulation, OVM, eRM, OVMWorld, SystemVerilog, Open Verification Methodology

Welcome Sharath Siddappa, the 5000th OVM World registrant! In only 10 months, the OVM has grown beyond 5000 registrants to more than 5200.  I took the opportunity to ask Sharath a few questions about his interest in the OVM and how he wants it to develop and here's what he had to say.

Can you tell us a little about yourself and your role at Rambus?
I have been working in Rambus Chip Technology (I) Pvt Ltd for past 2 years as verification engineer. I got chance to work on different verification languages (Verilog, Vera and SystemVerilog). I have expertise in SystemVerilog and AVM. Currently working on OVM based methodology for memory controller design. My role is to develop the verification environment for memory controller design and also verify the functionality.

What was your main reason for joining the OVM World?
I wanted to share my working experience on SV and OVM and to know others experience with OVM. I also wanted to use this forum to discuss any OVM related issues with experts.

How long have you been working with the OVM?
I have been working with OVM for the past five months.

How are you using the OVM in your project?
We are using OVM as a methodology to create VIP for memory controller design. We are using most of the base classes defined by OVM, mainly UVC concepts, factory concepts and virtual sequences.

What do you see as the key features in the OVM?
I would put UVC, factory concept and in-built methods for sequences as key features of OVM.

How does the OVM ecosystem benefit Rambus?
OVM is enabling reuse and making VIP more robust and configurable which is essential for an IP provider like Rambus.

What do you want to see in the future from the OVM?
I want OVM to fill the gap between different Methodologies and make people comfortable when they migrate from other Methodology to OVM. I also feel OVM should fill the missing pieces of methodology like all the stable features in other methodologies (eRM).

How has the OVM improved your verification capabilities?  Feel free to share your stories here or in the OVM World forums.
