Congratulations Tom Alsop, recipient of the 2017 Technical Excellence Award!
We'd like to thank Tom Alsop for his eight years of technical contributions and leadership as co-chair of the Universal Verification Methodology UVM Working Group. He has been a key contributor to the advancement of UVM and is very deserving of this award. As co-chair, he has inspired a group of dedicated working group members to work openly to develop the standards policies with well-established flows and processes that have helped make UVM one of the most widely applied standards in the EDA industry.
Under his leadership, UVM 1.2 was submitted as a contribution to the IEEE P1800.2™ working group for further standardization and maintenance, becoming an IEEE standard in 2017. UVM improves design productivity by making it easier to verify design components with a standardized representation that can be used with various verification tools, helping to lower verification costs and improve design quality.
