Mentor Graphics’ Questa Verification IP (VIP) now supports several MIPI Alliance specifications. This includes CSI, DSI and the recently announced LLI. Questa VIP is a comprehensive solution for SystemVerilog OVM and UVM test benches. Questa VIP support for MIPI protocols is available now for select customers.
The Mentor Graphics SystemVision SVX Client environment for the NI LabVIEW software enables designers to develop test bench against a virtual prototype based upon product’s specifications, and then use the exact same test bench in the NI LabVIEW software on physical prototypes. As a result, test bench development to be done in parallel with system development and prototyping. The combination of SystemVision SVX with LabVIEW provides for continuous product test program development much earlier in the development cycle.
SynaptiCAD rolled out version 15 of WaveFormer Pro, Timing Diagrammer Pro, and DataSheet Pro. The Timing Diagram Editors and test bench generators are available on Linux, Solaris, and Windows. Perpetual licenses start at $1,725 in a node-locked configuration. Time-based licenses are also available. WaveViewer is a free waveform viewer capable of displaying results of analog and digital simulations, and waveforms acquired from test equipment. The GigaWave option can be added to any of the products to boost the performance for very large files.
