UVM 1.2 is Here!

A new version of the class reference document UVM 1.2 for SoC verification is available. UVM 1.2 improves interoperability and reduces the cost of IP development and reuse for each new project. New features include enhanced messaging and improvements to the register layer. UVM 1.2 and its reference implementation are available for download. The implementation includes detailed release notes and script to help users upgrade, as some new features introduce backward incompatibility. UVM 1.2 is entering a review period ending October 1. Users are encouraged to participate using the UVM 1.2 Public Review Forum. UVM has an active user community. The LinkedIn group tops 5,000 members. A technical tutorial from the 2014 Design and Verification Conference is available. Taught by industry experts, the five-part tutorial includes an introduction to UVM 1.2 and in-depth user examples.
