Open Verification Methodology (OVM) provides an open source methodology for writing structural, interoperable and reusable verification components. This paper proposes a methodology update on OVM to support transaction based acceleration. The methodology enables transaction based verification of an OVM testbench using SCE-MI 2 based co-emulation modeling techniques to provide the much needed execution efficiency.
