Henderson, NV – April 11, 2017 – Aldec, Inc., today announced the latest release of Riviera-PRO™ 2017.02 - Advanced Verification Platform, with new functionalities and libraries aimed at verifying complex System-on-Chip (SoC), ASIC and FPGA designs. This new release of Riviera-PRO brings significant performance improvements in SystemVerilog and UVM compilation and simulation. SystemVerilog random constraint simulation is now 28% faster, UVM simulation is 10% faster, and designs using VHPI interface simulate 3800% faster.
The open-source Universal VHDL Verification Methodology (UVVM) joins widely-used industry verification libraries OVM, UVM, OSVVM as pre-compiled libraries in the latest Riviera-PRO. UVVM is a powerful framework and methodology, together with OSVVM randomization and UCIS based functional coverage delivers an effective reusable solution for system level designs.
“A robust portfolio of ready-to-use verification libraries, together with full support for Metric Driven Verification offers our users a fast and reusable solution to verify complex SoCs and FPGAs,” said Radek Nawrot, Riviera-PRO Product Manager. “Each universal verification library offers a unique capability, that’s why we are happy to deliver multiple pre-compiled verification libraries to provide our users the option to choose the libraries best-suited to address their own verification challenges.”
Riviera-PRO 2017.02 also introduces a large number of enhancements in coverage viewers to better align visualization of data to the needs of the user.
