Step-by-step Functional Verification with SystemVerilog and OVM

Customer Reviews:

The book is out of date.

By Greg Allen "gallen70" - May 5, 2011

The book lays out the verification methodology very well. The problem is that the book was based on OVM 1.0.1. OVM 2.1.1 was the version in use when I bought this book. With this version a lot of the examples in this book are out of date and useless. A good example is chapter 8 which covers sequences it talks about virtual sequencers these have been deprecated, some of the sequence port are gone also. This makes the majority of chapter 8 and later chapters and examples which use virtual sequencer useless. In short the book is too expensive to buy for the information it has in it now. Find a book that has been written more recently.

Best guide for System VerilogVerilog/OVM

By Claudiu Yancu "Claudiu Yanqo" - February 13, 2009

The book is extremely good for any verification engineer. I think it can be very good also for R&D managers to understand better the verification process and flow, in the first chapter the book makes it very clear and well organized.
For junior and senior verificaion engineers the book is very usefull, first to improve and learn verification skills and methodologies, secondly, it explains the system verilog main egines very clear and short with very good examples.
For OVM the book is wonderfull. Since OVM does not have a real specification with examples, this book is the best I found to understand and use OVM in the best and fastest way.
Bottom line, I think it is the best book for OVM that I could find, as well as for engineers that do not have SW programming background in Object Oriented language it explains it very well and clear.
I'm using OVM in my day by day job as a senior verification engneer and this book helped me out in several topics that were not clear... read more

Excellent OVM Information; But examples need editing to compile and simulate

By Debra Klopfenstein - July 16, 2009

I needed to become deeply familiar with OVM. This book is an excellent source of information that I have not found anywhere else. Iman is thorough and detailed. THe Step-by-Step layout works great.

But just note that the OVM examples in the 2nd half of the book are based on OVM-1.01. The OVM-1.01 examples in the book do not compile without some editing if you are using the latest release of OVM (I am currently using ovm-2.0.1). I emailed the author about this. [...]

The good news is editing the examples is not that bad if you grep through the ovm-2.0.1/src directory for information. The examples are well-put together and highlight Iman's concepts well. And once the edits are made, the examples run great.
