Cadence Design Systems Inc. and Mentor Graphics Corp. have announced an enhanced release of the source-code library and user documentation for the Open Verification Methodology (OVM), claimed to be the industry's first open, interoperable SystemVerilog verification methodology. These enhancements are the result of feedback from the growing user community at the OVM World site. To further support these users, Mentor Graphics and Cadence—joint developers of the OVM—are launching a series of worldwide activities.

Distributed under the standard open-source Apache 2.0 license, the OVM source code, usage examples and documentation may be downloaded free of charge from OVM World. In its first month, this site has gathered more than 1,700 registered users representing more than 700 companies. Registration allows users to download and to participate in a lively online forum in which they can share information, ask questions of OVM technologists and propose ideas for enhancements to the library and methodology.

Users will have the chance to meet at a series of worldwide seminars over the upcoming months. These free seminars, jointly sponsored by Cadence and Mentor Graphics, will be held at more than a dozen locations in North America, Europe and Asia. A follow-up OVM World event is planned for the 2008 Design Automation Conference (DAC) to be held June 8-13 in Anaheim, California.
