SmartDV releases Verification IP supporting platform-independent simulation Acceleration
SmartDV is offering a range of verification intellectual property supporting simulation acceleration platforms such as Mentor Veloce, Cadence Palladium, Synopsys Zebu and also any in-house custom platforms. SmartDV simulation VIP users can reuse sequence libraries and test cases from simulation flows. APIs are compatible with simulation VIP, increasing the efficiency of engineers.
SmartDV’s 20+ SimXL VIPs include: AMBA APB, AMBA AHB , AMBA AXI, LPDDR3 , LPDDR4, DDR3, DDR4, MIPI CSI2, Ethernet, Interlaken, UART, I2C, SPI, MIPI UFS , MIPI UNIPRO, MIPI MPHY , MIPI CPHY, USB , HMC, HBM, MIPI DSI, SDIO, Emmc, DPORT and HDMI. These VIPs deliver the same functionality and timing that customers now experience with SmartDV’s simulation VIPs. Architecture of all SmartDV VIPS will remain the same across the simulation and acceleration flow. An additional 12 SimXL-ready VIPs are to be released at the end of March.
“More and more of our customers are meeting short time-to-market windows by opting for acceleration to improve performance,” said Deepak Kumar Tala, CEO and managing director of SmartDV. “By providing them with a diverse portfolio of commonly-used SmartDV VIPs that now support simulation acceleration on any platform, we hope to help design teams deliver on the productivity promise that simulation acceleration offers.”
