The Universal Verification Methodology is a standard which is designed to enable creation of reusable, robust and interoperable verification IP and testbench components. In this work, we implemented layered UVM testbench for SpaceWire which is a spacecraft communication network based in part on the IEEE 1355 standard of communications. This design helps further analyzes of SpaceWire by testing different SpaceWire layers such as exchange layer and character layer. Transactions were used at all layer of protocol and user can make analysis, coverage collecting and debugging through this design. In the conclusion, all simulator results and details about Verification IP design were given.
