The Easier UVM Coding Guidelines and Code Generator


Easier UVM consists of the Easier UVM Coding Guidelines and the Easier UVM Code Generator. Easier UVM was created by Doulos as a service to the UVM community and is freely available from this website. You may use the Easier UVM Coding Guidelines as they are, merge them into your own company-specific UVM coding guidelines, or merely borrow some of the ideas. The Easier UVM Code Generator is a Perl script provided under the Apache 2.0 license (see the FAQ). You can also run the code generator from the EDA Playground website (see this video), and there is an Easier UVM Google Group where you can get help. There is extensive documentation and video tutorials on Easier UVM itself, and a series of video tutorials that teach UVM by taking advantage of Easier UVM and EDA Playground - see the links at the bottom of this and every Easier UVM webpage.

Easier UVM Examples Ready-to-Run on EDA Playground
Minimal example with driver
Minimal example with coverage in a subscriber as well as driver and monitor.
Minimal example with register sequence and register block
Example with four interfaces/agents, two of which use a register model.
Minimal example with dual-top modules and split transactors
Minimal example showing a UVM sequence getting information from the config database
Minimal example showing features of objections and the command line processor
Minimal example showing the reporting features of UVM.
Example that drops an objection when coverage exceeds some threshold
Example that sends a response transaction from the driver back to the uvm_reg_adapter
Example that uses a frontdoor sequence to pass a response object back to the register sequence that called read/write
Example of a parameterized interface generated from an Easier UVM interface template file
Example that pulls in a user-defined parameterized interface
Example of a reference model with the Syosil scoreboard
