It is most often used in classes to provide a connection point to allow classes to access the signals in the interface through the virtual interface pointer dynamically

The Art of Verification

Hi, I’m Hardik, and welcome to The Art of Verification.

I’m a Verification Engineer who loves to crack complex designs and here to help others commit to mastering Verification Skills through self-learning, System Verilog, UVM, and most important to develop that thought process that every verification engineer should have.

I’ve made it my mission to give back and serve others beyond myself.

I will NEVER settle for less than I can be, do, give, or create.
