Axiom Files Patent Applications for Unique Debugging Technology
Patents Filed for Five Key Algorithms Used in Advance Debugging of UVM Designs
The five patent applications filed include:
METHOD AND APPARATUS for automatically creating and displaying the testbench hierarchy for UVM based testbenches.
METHOD AND APPARATUS for automatically creating and displaying the port connectivity schematic for UVM based testbenches.
METHOD AND APPARATUS for tracing values in design through the use of biometric markers.
METHOD AND APPARATUS for Synchronization of UVM test bench and design under debug using transactions AUTOMATICALLY extracted from the Simulation Log file without any instrumentation and intervention by the user.
METHOD AND APPARATUS tracing drivers and value changes on dynamic testbench variables.
“Axiom has always taken pride in being the technology leader in functional verification”
First showcased to the public at the Design Automation Conference in San Francisco in June, DesignerUVM, incorporating the patent pending technology is in production and customers are already benefiting from the advanced technology.
“While the industry standard UVM is great for the industry, it introduces significant challenges for debugging", stated GarySmith, chief analyst at Gary Smith EDA.” With the maturing of SystemVerilog, debugging is a big competitive differentiator for simulators, as validated by the recent acquisition of SpringSoft by Synopsys. Axiom’s patent filing and customer response proves that Axiom has taken a lead when it comes to advanced integrated debugging environment for UVM testbenches”
