For a complex structure like UVM, which contains many inherited classes, the use of DVT IDE can facilitate trace code, which can save a lot of time for those who are not familiar with UVM architecture. In addition you can also graphically show the hierarchy structure of UVM structure and the analysis port used between transactions, which make the concept that is not intuitive easy to understand. In addition, it can also directly apply templates of many commonly used procedural blocks, functions, tasks, etc., which can save a lot of manual typing time. Overall, I think DVT IDE is very powerful for the DV team to develop the uvm environment.

The DVT IDE has been great! I found bugs in someone else's code when I wasn't even looking for them.

This is first time our team uses DVT Eclipse IDE for SystemVerilog. It is very useful for us to quickly get familiar with the UVM enviornment. It allows us to easily trace the UVM library, especially when using the UVM framework. By using hot keys, it is easy to find function/task usages and to find items in sequence item and virtual interface. We are very satisfied with the support from AMIQ's team.

I was looking for subsystems modeling and simulation in the FPGA environment for control-serial-protocols and bus protocols through APB, AHB, AXI, which eventually led me to learn about UVM-test environment learning in an integrated simulation environment.

Heard about AMIQ’s DVT Eclipse IDE through Youtube channels, surely a key tool to be utilized under one umbrella.

The basic features I have utilized are the Quick linter with advanced Semantic checks, Code completion for SV/UVM, bundled with many more customizations. All under one package is a big surprise to engineers. Using the DVT IDE effectively avoids human mistakes (syntax and semantics) and post-simulation-fixing loop, thus saving lot of time. It’s surely a blessing for verification engineers.

I am grateful to our India support team from DelphiumTech, who are dedicated with high spirits, patience and customer centric availability and technical help, all the time.

DVT IDE is perfect to me. I feel great with DVT, its editor and intelligent sense function help me develop easier. I like to use it in my jobs.

Our company has been using DVT IDE for 9 years and it's an indispensable part of our workflow. The productivity we gain from the tool's testbench analysis capabilities enables us to focus on the larger picture rather than getting lost in the details while fixing endless minor bugs in our code. During those 9 years, I've asked multiple times for enhancements that I thought were difficult or impossible for the AMIQ team to achieve and they've come through, to my amazement. Thank you AMIQ for a wonderful product!

Just a short note of thanks to give the AMIQ team kudos as they are in my experience the most proactive EDA vendor I've come across for support on any query no matter how big or small. Thanks!

I've enjoyed now for many years already DVT Eclipse IDE.

I used to be (and still am) a big Emacs editor aficionado and usually I was able to do a lot with the editor alone... after all, it has regular expression search and replace, ...block editing....even a psychiatrist online written in common Lisp...what else could you need when you code Specman e Language or SystemVerilog ? ?

WELL, when I started using DVT Eclipse IDE, I've found that ALL THE EDITING capabilities were in it of course as well (apart the psychiatrist but perhaps the AMIQ engineers will implement it in a next release), so if you are after "search and replace with regular expressions" ... emacs compatibility mode... do not fear!! All of that is anyway there!!

BUT THEN THE REAL differentiation starts: do you always remember in your mind all WHEN subtypes of a when inheritance hierarchy of your project ?

Do you remember all "is first" "is also" "is only" AND IN WHICH ORDER ARE THEY SEEN by your specman parser when the simulator loads the .e files ? ?

In DVT, here they are: use a mouse button and a menu and you can immediately see how they are wrapped and in which order ...

Do you want to refactor your code but you fear to break something ?

Well, the chances you break something are VASTLY reduced using DVT Eclipse IDE because you do not have "just an editor" that stores your ascii files. You have a tool that has PARSED and CONSTRUCTED AST (abstract syntax trees) of your files, and KNOWS where something is used and from where it came from.

So I can really only suggest to use DVT Eclipse IDE if you are coding Specman e Language (or SystemVerilog and UVM, if for that) verification environments.

I use DVT Eclipse IDE in a System Verilog UVM based project. I could instantly see the value of the tool, as I was able to see complied errors without running tests with meaningful messages of what the issue was. This also saves usage of the simulation tool licenses. I was also able to switch to the definition of the function and classes very fast. The AMIQ support is amazing - they quickly respond and fix any issues or questions.

After working with many HDL editors in my career, open source or paid tools, DVT Eclipse IDE is by far the best tool for RTL design. So much time is saved when you have the ability to catch errors and see connectivity of large projects in a fast and intuitive way. I don't think I can work without it anymore. If it was up to me, I would have bought all the four tools you provide just by the trust you gave me with DVT and the support you provide.
