Portable Stimulus: Moving UVM Verification Up To The Next Level

May 26, 2020 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

With the advent of the new Portable Test and Stimulus standard from Accellera, one of the most asked questions we hear is, “will Portable Stimulus replace UVM?” The answer is absolutely not. Portable Stimulus was conceived from the ground up to take advantage of UVM as one of the possible realization platforms for which tools may generate tests. This session will look at the PSS-UVM relationship and help attendees understand this important and powerful relationship and show how tools can automatically apply Portable Stimulus technology to improve UVM verification “under the covers.”

Tom Fitzpatrick is a Strategic Verification Architect at Mentor Graphics where he works on developing advanced verification methodologies and educating users and partners on their adoption. He has been a significant contributor to several industry standards, both in Accellera and IEEE, including Verilog 1364, SystemVerilog 1800, UVM 1800.2 and is a founding member and current Vice Chair of the Portable Stimulus Working Group. He is also the 2019 recipient of the Accellera Technical Excellence Award. He has published multiple articles and technical papers about SystemVerilog, verification methodologies, assertion-based verification, functional coverage, formal verification, Portable Stimulus and other functional verification topics and has produced some of the most popular and successful video training courses on Mentor’s Verification Academy website.
