Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) is the Accellera class-based verification library and reuse methodology for SystemVerilog. Learning UVM can be challenging, but a good up-to-date knowledge of SystemVerilog and an appreciation of Object-Oriented design techniques can help tremendously.
This one day course reviews SystemVerilog class constructs and introduces Object-Oriented design techniques, both of which are essential for learning UVM. This course is intended as a precursor to the SystemVerilog Advanced Verification with UVM training class. Experience has shown us that taking this course first makes your UVM training much more efficient and effective.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Create SystemVerilog classes using randomization, constraints, inheritance and aggregation.
- Understand polymorphism and the role of casting, virtual methods and virtual classes.
- Write robust policy-controlled class methods which implement reference, shallow and deep operations on polymorphic, inherited and aggregate class structures.
- Create verification components from hierarchical class instances and understand the purpose of instance names and parent pointers.
Note there is no UVM content in this course.
