What People Are Saying

"Moving to a SystemVerilog-based verification flow with VCS NTB has doubled our verification productivity compared with previous projects. The VMM methodology was of immeasurable help in getting us started with SystemVerilog and has enabled our team to build a complete, robust and scalable verification environment in just a matter of months."

Scott Scheeler
Vice President of Engineering

"The VMM methodology provides a powerful, robust and open approach to creating SystemVerilog verification environments more quickly and easily. The easy access to Synopsys' implementation of the VMM Standard Library source code has given us additional insight into the methodology and will help ensure project portability across multiple EDA tools."

Alan Sherman
Principal Member of Technical Staff

"We are taking full advantage of the VCS solution's support for the VMM methodology, the VCS Verification Library, powerful constraint solvers and integrated testbench debug environment to complete our verification tasks more productively. The VMM Methodology in particular helps us create a more consistent verification environment."

Steve Blightman
Founder and Manager of ASIC Development

"Our previous verification methodology relied heavily on the use of hand-written directed tests, followed by extensive lab debug of FPGA prototypes. For the Warp MD project, we needed a new verification methodology to handle the increased complexity of the design. We ramped up quickly on SystemVerilog with VCS NTB and used the VMM to help us create a well-structured, scalable testbench environment. The move to SystemVerilog with VCS NTB and the VMM methodology enabled our verification project to be completed a full month ahead of an already aggressive schedule. Deciding to use the VMM was the best thing we could have done."
