Universal VHDL Verification Methodology

What is UVVM?

  • Open Source Verification Library and Methodology
  • Very structured testbench infrastructure and architecture
  • Significantly improves Verification efficiency
  • Assures a far better Design Quality
  • The much simpler VHDL variant of UVM

World-wide #1 VHDL Verification Methodology

UVVM is your best VHDL Verification Methodology today - and is being continuously improved

EmLogic has continued the Bitvis legacy and has been architecting and leading the development on the UVVM methodology and library since the termination of Bitvis.
