Regressions consume a great deal of HW resources (e.g. CPU time) and SW resources (e.g. licenses) and… a lot of human effort. This is what usually happens when we run a regression: we aim to reduce the time spent in regression […]

From our experience the solution is to generate items being aware of how they will be covered. For example if the coverage item has power-of-2 buckets, the generated […]

Here is what my experience has been, originally posted on Accellera. 1. Download UVM […]
