  • Video: Update on AMIQ’s DVT IDE and UVM 1.0 at DVCon 2011

    The UVM 1.0 release was the big story of DVCon 2011, as it's the first verification methodology officially supported by all three of the "Big 3" simulation vendors. However, the very nature of the standard -- an open source library governed by a community similar in character to Linux itself...

  • The Future of OVM, VMM, and UVM

  • DVCon 2010 Rocked!

    I've spent much of this week at the San Jose Doubletree Hotel for DVCon 2010 , and I have to say that it was a really good show.
