Q. Why would I use SVUnit?
Good question. You’ll want to use SVUnit if you and your customers value defect free systemverilog code. Simple as that.
Q. What do I do with SVUnit?
The SVUnit framework allows you to easily isolate modules, classes and/or interfaces in your designs and testbenches so you can kill bugs at a granularity that is most productive: the unit test level. It’s good for design and verification engineers. It’s also great for test-driven development if you care enough to prevent defects in the first place.
Q. Why would I not use SVUnit?
A. If you love garbage code and irate customers, then SVUnit is not for you.

A. Instructions for downloading and using SVUnit are on the Getting Started page.
