    A few weeks ago we had a crisis at our house. My son managed to delete the data from my daughter's USB memory stick. Not only did he delete it, but he did it in such a strange way I have no idea what he could have done. She was not too happy since all of her recent school work was on the memory stick.

    UVM SystemVerilog in a Multi-Language SoC World: UVM-ML Webinar

    Every SoC project uses multiple languages. Even if the design itself is purely Verilog RTL, it's likely that you have some PLI-based stimulus. In many cases there are multiple languages in use due to multiple suppliers, globalized teams, multiple abstractions, and more. Integrating e, SystemVerilog, SystemC, and C/C++ into one simulation is basic but insufficient for SoC verification.  The question asked by SoC verification teams is "how can these work together in a cohesive...
