Europe, Nordic countries


Bitvis AS is a privately held design centre that helps customers develop FPGA, Embedded Software and SoC-FPGAs. With any part of the development, but also with methodology, reviews – and as a sparring partner.

We invest significantly in methodology improvement – including tools and libraries – primarily to improve quality. We focus on Overview, Readability, Maintainability and Extensibility for the same reason. A side effect of this is more efficient development, simpler and safer reuse, and a far more customer oriented handover.


Bitvis is the maintainer of Universal VHDL Verification Methodology (UVVM) – the new open source VHDL testbench methodology and library that allows complex verification scenarios to be handled in a simple way, - so that anyone can make advanced testbenches with a structured architecture, and control the Device Under Test (DUT) with simple and very understandable commands. The library allows a testbench kick-start due to the already available Verification Components and BFMs for AXI4-lite/stream, Avalon MM, UART, I2C, etc. UVVM may be downloaded from


Bitvis is also a course provider.

  • ‘Accelerating FPGA design’ (2 days). A unique course in its focus on architecture, modularity, coding, CDC and Reuse.
  • ‘Advanced VHDL Verification – Made simple’ (3 days incl. labs). An intensive course on how to significantly reduce verification time and at the same time improve the quality – by making a better, easy to control and more understandable testbench architecture.
