The need to deal with verification is spurring a wave of technological experimentation across EDA. Though at best most such experiments result in incremental improvement, collectively the work adds up to an impressive effort to dramatically improve verification. One such advance is the USB3.0 Multi-view Verification Component (MVC). USB3.0 MVC is Open Verification Methodology (OVM)-based verification IP. It implements transaction level modeling-based methodology, which accelerates the verification of complex designs. More precisely, the verification IP bus functional model (BFM) provides users maximum controllability, described in this white paper, which makes it easier to create scenarios and hit corner cases.
