This is a beginner level course in Systemverilog HDL focusing only the 'Universal Verification Methodology' (UVM) in it. The objective of this course is to make UVM learning easier and help student for quick ramp up on this industry demanding topic.
The primary targets of of this course are the VLSI aspirant students and verification engineers. This will give enough confidence to start writing UVM based test bench and will be an excellent platform towards mastering it. Apart for verification people, designers and managers who want to get a basic level understanding of the methodology are also encouraged to enroll this course.
Inside the course, you will get introduced to UVM and learn the generic structure of any UVM based testbench. You will learn the basic classes that need to be familiar with to such as, test, env, agent, driver, monitor etc. Finally you will go thorough a complete UVM based TB development example, which will make you confidant about writing your own code. Here a practical approach is adapted by showing a simple Systemverilog TB first, and converting it to first, a class based test bench, and finally to UVM based TB.
To make this course effective for you, you must have the basic knowledge of using Systemverilog for SoC /IC verification. Also having basic level understanding of Object Oriented Programming concepts will make this course a little more effective for you.
If you are already familiar with UVM who know the methodology basics, this course is not for you.
