Accellera Systems Initiative Releases UVM 1.2

"The UVM working group has achieved the goals of its charter to enhance SoC productivity throughout the industry," said Tom Alsop, UVM Working Group co-chair. "We are proud to report that UVM 1.2 continues the work to define new features and improve quality of the reference implementation."

Messaging, sequences, register layer and other features enhanced in successful standard

Napa, Calif., USA, 24 June 2014 - Accellera Systems Initiative (Accellera), the electronics industry organization focused on the creation and adoption of electronic design automation (EDA) and intellectual property (IP) standards, announced it released a new version of its Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) class reference document, UVM 1.2 for SoC (system on chip) verification. UVM 1.2 improves interoperability and reduces the cost of IP development and reuse for each new project. The ... More »

Accellera Enhances Mixed-signal Modeling and Verification in Verilog-AMS 2.4 Standard

Accellera announces it has developed new verification and design modeling extensions for its Verilog-AMS standard. Verilog-AMS provides powerful structural and behavioral modeling capabilities for mixed-signal designs in which the effects of, and interactions among, different disciplines such as electrical, mechanical, fluid dynamics and thermal are important.

DVCon 2013: Engineers Question EDA Standards Leaders at Accellera "Town Hall" Meeting

Do design and verification engineers care about EDA standards? If the Accellera Systems Initiative "Town Hall" meeting at DVCon 2013 Feb. 25 is any indication, the answer is an emphatic yes. A packed audience attended a lively, hour-long meeting in which non-stop questions were answered by Accellera and IEEE standards developers.

Master & Commander: DVCon's Stan Krolikoski

Now in its 25th year, DVCon is coming up in a couple of weeks in Silicon Valley. In terms of process nodes, 25 years is about twelve generations. In terms of dog years, it's about four generations. In terms of the life of Stan Krolikoski, however, 25 years is only part of one career. It's also the amount of time Stan's been going to DVCon, even though it had a different name when he attended the first such conference back in 1988.

A look back on 2012: Accellera

Editor's note: While other respondents talked about standards, the response I got from Accellera was so complete that I want to publish it in its entirety.

An important principle of Accellera Systems Initiative is to encourage availability and adoption of next-general EDA and IP standards. To that end, Accellera has realized several accomplishments this year in the areas of technical achievements and standards; industry events; educational videos; and awards.
