New UVM Recipe of the Month: Scoreboarding in UVM

By Tom Fitzpatrick

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to make sure you’re aware of our next Recipe of the Month online Web Seminar: Scoreboards and Results Predictors in UVM on Thursday, July 12 at 9am PDT. You can register for the seminar here. This will be the ninth seminar in our ongoing Recipe of the Month seminar (see the full list here) and the reviews have been universally positive.

This particular seminar will outline the proper architecture of scoreboards and predictors in UVM and how they relate to coverage.

Overview: If verification is the art of determining that your design works correctly under all specified conditions, then it is imperative that we are able to create an environment that can tell you if this is truly the case. Scoreboards are verification components that determine that the DUT is working correctly, including ensuring that the DUT properly handles all stimuli it receives. Predictors are components that represent a “golden” model of all or part of the DUT that generate an expected response against which the scoreboard can compare the actual response of the DUT.

Hope to “see” you on Thursday.
