OSVVM.org is back!
Over the last year, OSVVM has been growing rapidly. I was delighted to have the opportunity to present OSVVM papers at FPGA World (both Stockholm and Copenhagen) and at DVCon Europe in Munich. In addition, between September and November 2019, I delivered six (!) OSVVM focused Advanced VHDL Testbench and Verification training courses through my company SynthWorks and through our European partners FirstEDA (UK and Northern Europe) and PLC2 (Germany).
You are hopefully already aware that OSVVM is becoming an IEEE Open Source pilot project! With IEEE Open Source we will still have free access and participation for all (you do not need to be an IEEE member, you only need to register). In fact, it will actually be easier for you to contribute to OSVVM because one of the things the IEEE will manage is the contributor license agreement (CLA). This means that I will get to focus on doing the fun stuff I like (code) and leave the tedious tasks to our new partner. I will make a further announcement when the IEEE OSVVM site is fully operational.
In late 2019, FirstEDA offered to take on the task of updating and managing OSVVM.org for the benefit of the users and wider OSVVM community. I am grateful they took on this project! Like the IEEE Open Source, this too allows me to focus on the technical aspects of OSVVM and SynthWorks’ VHDL classes, whilst ensuring that the website continues to be as active as possible. Many thanks to FirstEDA for this!
