In case you missed the press release, the Open Verification Methodology (OVM) has been updated to support e as well as SystemC: http://www.cadence.com/cadence/newsroom/press_releases/Pages/pr.aspx?xml=022309_extended_ovm
The first implementation of OVM was for SystemVerilog back in 2007. This donation from Cadence extends it to both e and SystemC.
For eRM users, OVM e is effectively the next version of eRM with some nice new enhancements, as well as extensions to align it with OVM SystemVerilog to better enable multi-language verification. Since the OVM SystemVerilog methodology is heavily based on the eRM, the OVM e updates are fully backward compatible with eRM.
Many companies are moving to SystemC for architectural exploration and as a way to provide an early virtual prototype for software development, as well as starting to design at the TLM level. The initial focus of OVM SystemC is to enable better consistency and connectivity between SystemC models or basic testbenches with Coverage-driven OVM SystemVerilog or e testbenches. You can download the open-source OVM Multi-language kit from OVM World in the contributions area at:http://ovmworld.org/contributions.php The release includes libraries, examples, and the OVM Multi-language User Guide.
