Leveraging UVM for verifying High-speed IOs with Verilog-AMS

Posted by Shankar Hemmady on April 17th, 2012

When the industry decided to standardize on UVM, we had high hopes that some day we will be able to use the standard to raise the level of abstraction and solve many open issues. Take the case of AMS verification of High-speed IOs, which has largely been the turf of hand-crafted custom designs verified mostly with directed tests.

Warren Anderson and his team at AMD here describe a simple, innovative approach they used with UVM and Verilog-AMS running VCS and CustomSim/XA… yes, UVM really works wonders when used prudently with the right flow.
