Accellera Approves Functional Design Verification Standard

September 2007
Portable Design;Sep2007, Vol. 13 Issue 9, p10
The article reports that Accellera Organization Inc. has approved the functional design verification standard in the U.S. Accellera, the electronics industry organization focused on Electronic Design Automation (EDA) standards, announced that its Board of Directors, representing semiconductor, Intellectual Property (IP), EDA companies and systems houses, sanctioned the Open Verification Library (OVL) 2.0 as a verification standard. OVL improves electronic design quality and supports Assertion-Based Verification (ABV) with Verilog, SystemVerilog, VHDL and the Property Specification Language (PSL).
