We are using DVT Eclipse IDE in our team and it is a great tool for development , debug and error tracing. The quick navigation and auto-complete feature saves a lot of time and makes me use this time rather on understanding the IP/test bench blocks thus increasing my productivity. The on the fly compile feature also saves a lot of time by spotting coding style errors early. Overall I feel a great tool with nice syntax highlights, quick navigation and quick compilation features.
Working with the DVT Eclipse IDE is a game changer. It allows focusing on development and significantly boosts my productivity. On top of that, it's an absolute pleasure working with AMIQ. Their support is excellent (always prompt, useful and friendly), and they listen to my needs (adding new features that further make my life easier).
DVT Eclipse IDE has been an invaluable tool. As a member of an EDA team, I work with several business units. I use DVT Eclipse because it allows me to become familiar with their environment quickly. I can use the tool's browser-style navigation capability, hyperlinks, and intelligent searching mechanism. I can see the testbench and design hierarchy. I can also create architecture diagrams at any granularity.
DVT Eclipse IDE is also useful for people who are learning how to develop testbenches using UVM, SystemVerilog, and C++. The tool shows compilation errors as you type. It enables code creation through auto-completion, code templates, module instantiation, etc. These features are helpful for new verification engineers as well as seasoned ones because it greatly improves their efficiency.
The support for this tool is amazing. The people at AMIQ are always available the moment we need help. If we need the tool to support something that it doesn't, they implement a fix and release a new version of the tool immediately. AMIQ is the best!
I have been using the DVT Eclipse IDE since September 2008, version 2.0, and guess what, I'm still using it. During this time, I have requested bug fixes and enhancements, and I may say that I'm not disappointed!
As customer, their customer support have always been very good and the enhancements and bug fixes have been implemented. Just for this I would 100% recommend using DVT Eclipse, but that is just a start.
When it comes to editing and changing the code, you have access to:
- Semantic colouring
- Update module instantiation (very handy when changing the underlying components)
- Code and project templates
- Integration with code revision (clearcase, perforce and mylyn makes task focused work great!)
- Logs from tools output with hiperlinks enabled to jump into source code (jump to warnings/errors in source code from logs :)
- And much more...
It has a great search engine, and for browsing code, to the jump to definition, is something that you just can’t get enough! With the latest state diagram and the inspect view, makes understanding and debugging RTL a delight. With the integration of CDT and all the verification support for UVM, DVT Eclipse have you covered.
You can, more or less in an hour, for a complex project, have a complete DVT project up and running (just parse the output logs for commands for the DVT plugin and you would be amazed!)
I use DVT Eclipse plugin every day, and all this time it has given me an edge when it comes to debugging and understanding the RTL. If you are reading this, don’t hesitate! Go for it! DVT Eclipse is really good!
DVT Eclipse IDE is the essential tool for functional verification. I first started using it 10 years ago, for e language first, then for SV-UVM. For sure I couldn’t live without it!
It brings major features that increase quality & productivity when building or browsing verification code: on-the-fly code compilation, hyperlinks, auto completion… and this is just the beginning of the list! How painful is it to rename a widely used SystemVerilog class? It is just a matter of seconds with DVT!
DVT is a quite high quality tool, so you don’t often need to get in touch with support. But when you do get in touch with Amiq guys, you get reactive & efficient support: no useless calls or mail exchanges, they just immediately understand your request, provide an immediate workaround if needed and a fix in a more than acceptable timeframe.
It is always a pleasure to work with Amiq.
The DVT Eclipse IDE is a powerful and easy to use tool that dramatically enhances the productivity of the engineers in our chip design group. Its many features make it trivial to rapidly author and navigate complex RTL designs and their associated verification environments. Users are able share and reuse code because DVT makes it easy to quickly explore complex UVM verification test benches and libraries, despite the many layers created by class extensions, function overrides and class libraries.
The team at Amiq provide excellent tool support, they are very responsive and clearly understand the complexity and inner workings of System Verilog and UVM.
While DVT's productivity gains in day-to-day development are clear, it has been indispensable in on-boarding neophytes to SystemVerilog for RTL and verification using UVM. The quality of the tool and the fantastic support, especially when requesting new features, are second to none.
I cannot imagine writing a single line of Specman e code without the DVT Eclipse IDE.
DVT Eclipse's productivity boost through incremental compile, which we like to call instant compile, directly and positively impacts our schedules. AMIQ provides terrific support and continuous improvement of the tool's capabilities.
The DVT Eclipse IDE is a great tool. The productivity of a verification engineer using this tool is being increased greatly and the ROI is very noticeable.
