    Hi everyone,

    It is my understanding that OSVVM release 2018.4 is pre-packaged with Cadence Xcelium version 20.03. Does anyone know if/when newer/latest release(s) will be pre-packaged with Xcelium?

    Thanks!

    Hi Steve,
    What we find is that users have more influence over vendors than I do. To be fair to them though, OSVVM has had numerous updates through COVID. One benefit of teaching on-line and not traveling is that I have had more time to work on OSVVM.

    One of my goals is to get the OSVVM compile scripts working under Cadence Xcelium. If you would like to collaborate on that, please reach out to me via email. This task is in my planning, I just have not had enough free time to focus on it yet. With a collaborator, it will happen sooner. If not, I expect to have the scripting done by end of first half of 2021.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Steve,
    A quick update. I am working with Cadence on Xcelium. Things are looking up. I should have more news on this shortly.

    I have provided them with the full OSVVM regression suite. I am optimistic, but I don’t know the time frame for them to update Xcelium.

    Hi Jim,

    Thanks for the update! I am now using Xcelium 21.03.007, and the documentation for this version says that OSVVM (utility library only) with tag 2020.12 is pre-packaged. Previously, the documentation referenced tag 2018.04. Also, back in January of this year, I got in contact with a rep at Cadence regarding plans to support all parts of the OSVVM library, and he was not aware that there was more than just the utility library. He told me he would put in JIRA tickets for the updates to include the remaining parts of the library.

    Overall, things seem promising!

    Thanks for all your hard work! Keep it up!

    Hi Steve,
    I am just getting back to testing Cadence. Need to test with their Agile release. I think that may be a different release channel than normal, so I am trying to work through it.

    Best Regards,
    Jim

    Hi Jim,

    Thanks again for everything you do! I am just following up regarding full OSVVM support in Xcelium. Xcelium 22.03 was just released. It includes support for VHDL-2019 conditional analysis (pleasant surprise!) along with additional support of VHDL-2008 language features/constructs. OSVVM 2022.01 is pre-packaged, but I believe it is still just the utility library. Do you know if at some point OSVVMLibraries (and all sub-modules thereof) will be pre-packaged with Xcelium?

    Thanks again,

    –Steve

    Hi Steve,
    Thanks for the update. I have plans to test with Xcelium 22.03 soon.
    Looking forward to seeing the results.

    I will ask them about providing all of the libraries. OTOH, OSVVM has
    been doing releases a little more frequently at the moment. So it is
    hard for them to have the latest libraries. Like seeing that they
    updated to 2022.01.

    Best Regards,
    Jim
