Maximizing Verification Effectiveness Using Metric-Driven Verification

How to use MDV in conjunction with the Universal Verification Methodology to achieve improved quality in less time and with fewer resources.

This paper introduces the Cadence Incisive Verification Kit as a golden example of how to maximize verification effectiveness by applying metric-driven verification (MDV) in conjunction with the Universal Verification Methodology (UVM). MDV provides an overarching approach to the verification problem by transforming an open-ended, open-loop verification process into a manageable, repeatable, deterministic, and scalable closed-loop process. Through this transformation, verification project teams and managers greatly increase their chances of consistently delivering working designs at improved quality levels in less time with fewer human resources.
