I strongly view the DVT Eclipse IDE as an essential element in the design and verification of complex designs; it is a well-integrated tool that not only allows correct-by-construction code per standard guidelines but provides users a very deep understanding of the design to facilitate debugging and communication.
What I loved about AMIQ EDA's DVT Eclipse IDE is that:
- it is a well thought-out, mature set of integrated tools for creating SystemVerilog and VHDL designs and verification environments (particularly UVM) such that the project is correct by construction;
- is supported by an in-depth structural and UML view of the architecture (including UVM and classes);
- is supported by a smart editor that understand the structure of the language and the structure of the design, thus providing features such as smart templates, auto-complete with list of potential objects; the editor can beautify code and declutter the view of code by hiding bodies of structures that are irrelevant to debugging (e.g., modules, functions, always, tasks, etc); ease of global rename changes (e,g., signal / function / module) using refactoring;
- automatically compiles code on the fly to detect coding errors;
- automatically generates html documentation about all information needed for the design (e.g., modules, interfaces, assertions, classes, macros, packages, covergoups);
- provides a smart SV linting including compliance to UVM best-use rules, and statistics about usage of sequences, assertions, coverage, and messaging).
Working in a startup means you’re understaffed and must move as fast as possible. The DVT Eclipse IDE has proved itself many times over as an invaluable tool in both speeding up the development and enhancing the quality of our UVM verification environments. The quality, friendliness, and speed of their support staff are also a joy to work with.
AMIQ's DVT Eclipse IDE helped my team tackle a massive Verilog + VHDL project. Without the editing features, the design hierarchy views, and the ability to trace signals through all levels of hierarchy, it would have been a nightmare to manage and debug this chip. DVT is now part of my standard design flow.
In the EDA industry, sometimes the tools are exceptional, but the support not so much. AMIQ is checking both boxes with ease. The DVT Eclipse IDE and Verissimo SystemVerilog Linter are great tools, very well integrated, and AMIQ is going the extra mile making sure the tools work well in our environment and we understand how to get the most of them, providing promptly enhancements when needed.
The DVT Eclipse IDE brings the Chip-Design logic development into the 21st century. For years I was asking myself how come we are different from all other "code-writers" ? Why the SW developers have IDE and we have editors ? DVT provides us with all those benefits from the standard coding world, It is a very user-friendly and highly-efficient tool in terms of code debug and tracking. And it saves you a lot of time !!! Thanks AMIQ for the support.
First of all, I would like to say the DVT Eclipse IDE is a great tool, it has saved me from having to type so much.
The DVT Eclipse IDE is working superbly for me – it’s one of the most useful EDA tools I’ve used.
I have been using the DVT Eclipse IDE and am liking it quite a bit! And I did not have any problems at all with the installation, the license, or running the tool. I am new to OOP and the DVT Eclipse IDE is very nice for that. I wished I had used it also for RTL development!
The DVT Eclipse IDE is a "Bug Prevention Activity".
It takes half the time to develop a new test. The DVT Eclipse IDE is so fast! It’s a ‘must have’ tool for Validation Engineers working on OOP based code. Thank you for developing Eclipse DVT. I deployed it my team and they cannot live without it now :)
