The Open Verification Methodology (OVM) provides a framework that includes both a methodology and code libraries that a verification engineer can use to build a testbench that is modular, interoperable, and reusable. The inFact’ intelligent testbench automation tool allows the user to build testbench components whose activity is controlled by one or more rule graphs that define the verification scenarios and stimuli that are to be applied to the device under verification (DUV) or to one of its interfaces. This application note describes how you would construct an inFact OVM component and include it within an OVM-based testbench. It is assumed that the user is already familiar with other aspects of the inFact tool, such as building the rule graphs, coverage objects etc. It is also assumed that the user has a good understanding of the OVM.
