Mentor Graphics Embraces Accellera's Universal Verification Methodology
This week, Mentor Graphics Corporation announced that they are backing Accellera's Universal Verification Methodology.
The Universal Verification Methodology was built by Accellera and approved by Accellera, but it is based on Mentor's work in developing the Advanced Verification Methodology and Open Verification Methodology.
"Mentor recognized early that only an open source verification methodology would provide users the ability to write fully portable and reusable verification components," Mentor Graphics general manager John Lenyo said. "We are proud to see that the technology we first developed in AVM and refined in OVM now continues as the core of UVM."
