About OS-VVM

(OS-VVM) is an intelligent testbench methodology that allows mixing of “Intelligent Coverage” (coverage driven randomization) with directed, algorithmic, file based, and constrained random test approaches. The methodology can be adopted in part or in whole as needed. OSVVM allows users to add advanced verification methodologies current testbenches without having to learn a new language or discard existing testbench or testbench models.
