UVM-UTest is Ready for Download

After less than a month of development, the open-source UVM-UTest project is ready for download by the masses. If you care about code quality and maintainability, you’ll be interested in what we have.

For instructions on how to download and run UVM-UTest, take a look at the UVM-UTest Getting Started page. If this is the first you’ve heard of UVM-UTest, you may also want to check out the original UVM-UTest announcement to see what we’re up to. In that announcement you’ll see links to the project charter and progress page. Also be sure to check out The Most Descriptive UVM Tests Ever Written. Those and others like it are part of today’s release.

The next step for us comes this Friday at Noon EST when we have our first UVM-UTest challenge. That’s where we challenge some of our colleagues to find holes in our unit test suite. If they can break the UVM library without our unit tests detecting it, they win. If our unit tests detect all the changes they make, we win.¬†We’ll keep you posted on how that turns out!

..and of course… if you’re interested in taking the challenge, we’d be happy to hear from you :)!

About nosnhojn

I have been working in ASIC and FPGA development for more than 12 years at various IP and product development companies and now as a consultant with XtremeEDA Corp. My specialty for most of that time has been RTL functional verification where I have had a chance to work with some very experienced people and learn state of the art techniques. I really enjoy the challenges of being a verification engineer but as of late have come to wonder what lies beyond my verification bubble. That's lead me to agile software development and project management. There is a massive amount of material out there related to agile development. All of it is interesting and most of it should be applicable to hardware development in one form or another. So I'm here to find what agile concepts will work for hardware development and to help other developers use them successfully! You can find me at neil.johnson@agilesoc.com.
