Cadence Donates UVM World Website to Accellera
SAN JOSE, Calif., 28 Jun 2011
- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. today announced that it has donated the UVM World Website (www.uvmworld.org) to the Accellera standards organization. Accellera, which released the Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) as a standard in February, will operate and fund the site, which Cadence established in May 2010 to serve as an open, definitive location for all UVM-related information.
The UVM was built upon the Open Verification Methodology (OVM) that Cadence was instrumental in developing.
“We have funded and operated UVM World as a vendor-agnostic site to serve the industry as it ramps up its use of this verification methodology,” said Thomas L. Anderson, group director, verification product marketing, Silicon Realization Group at Cadence. “With Accellera’s release of the UVM standard, it makes sense now to hand the site over to the standards group for the next stage of its evolution.”
“Cadence has done a great job building this website, and we appreciate all of the company’s work to support the UVM,” said Shishpal Rawat, chair of Accellera. “Our organization will ensure that UVM World continues to serve as the robust, one-stop shop for the UVM that it is today.”
