Most OVM users understand how OVM sequences can be used for stimulus generation, implemented as either a directed or constrained random test. However, they may not be aware that this same OVM sequence construct is supported by inFact intelligent testbench automation. This article examines how inFact’s coverage driven stimulus generation solution can be deployed in an OVM sequence environment and compares simulation performance between sequences developed using a constrained random methodology and inFact.
