Verifciation methodology created by Mentor
The Advanced Verification Methodology (Avm) was a verification methodology and base class library written in SystemVerilog and created by Mentor Graphics in 2006. It provided a framework for component hierarchy and TLM communication to provide a standardized use model for SystemVerilog verification environments.
AVM was open-source and provided both SystemVerilog and SystemC methodologies. This SystemC version was based on the OSCI TLM standard.
