Synopsys has added a Performance Checker capability to their next-generation Discovery Verification IP (VIP) for the ARM AMBA 4 AXI4 protocol. The Performance Checker capability in the Synopsys Discovery VIP helps improve the productivity of engineering teams using the AMBA protocols to meet their SoC performance goals.
Synopsys introduced their Discovery Verification IP (VIP) family. Synopsys VIP is written entirely in SystemVerilog and is based on the new VIPER Architecture. It offers speeds and simplifies the verification of complex protocols and SoC designs. The Synopsys Discovery VIP family includes Protocol Analyzer, which is a unique prothonotary debug environment. Synopsys VIP is available for a variety of protocols, including USB 3.0, ARM AMBA AXI3, AXI4, ACE, HDMI, MIPI (CSI-2, DSI, HSI, etc.), Ethernet 40G/100G, PCI Express, SATA, and OCP.
