3.14 SystemVerilog OVM or UVM Library Compilation

Typically the OVM or UVM libraries are compiled using directives like:

+incdir+/path/to/xvm/src
/path/to/xvm/src/xvm_pkg.sv

Using the -ovm or -uvm directives

You can use the - ovm or - ''-uvm'' directives to compile the OVM or UVM libraries. They are shortcuts for the explicit directives above.

For - ''-uvm'':

  1. If the $UVM_HOME system variable is specified, use that library.

  2. If the $DVT_UVM_HOME system variable is specified, use that library. If you launch DVT using one of the utility scripts that ship with DVT, $DVT_UVM_HOME is set by default to the most recent uvm library in $DVT_HOME/predefined_projects/libs.

  3. If $DVT_UVM_HOME is not defined, falls back to $DVT_HOME/predefined_projects/libs/uvm-1.2.

The - ''-ovm'' directive works in a similar way.

NOTE: At any time you can set a system variable using for example:

+dvt_setenv+UVM_HOME=/path/to/xvm
