Accellera, which released the Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) as a standard in February, will operate and fund the site. Cadence established the URL in May 2010 as part of its work on the then developing standard so that the site could serve as an open, definitive location for all UVM-related information.
The UVM standard was built upon the Open Verification Methodology (OVM) that Cadence was instrumental in developing in conjunction with a number of other companies.
"Cadence has done a great job building this website, and we appreciate all of the company's work to support the UVM," said Shishpal Rawat, chair of Accellera. "Our organization will ensure that UVM World continues to serve as the robust, one-stop shop for the UVM that it is today."
Combined with the just announced intention to merge Accellera with OSCI, the UVM website represent a major opportunity for Accellera. Leveraging on the experience gained by OSCI in establishing and managing the SystemC users group, the consortium can now build on the interest in UVM to establish another user group community to serve both the verification and the design engineering communities.
