According to Chris Edwards in “Expanding role of UVM takes center stage at DVCon Europe”
[DVCon Europe general chair Martin] Barnasconi says UVM provides a useful framework that can be extended beyond its home of SystemVerilog-based IP verification […]
“We need to think beyond SystemVerilog,” says Barnasconi. “That’s where the challenge is if you ask me. System-level people might use SystemC, C++ or Matlab Simulink. The methodology concept behind UVM is something we should build upon to make it more applicable to other disciplines.
“In the conference there is a tutorial on UVM in SystemC. Teams are trying to bring the methodology to different languages. It underlines the ‘U’ in universal in my view. We also have the trend towards software-driven verification. We need to enable this software layer can be used within sequences defined in UVM.”
