EVE introduced the e-zTest MIPI CSI-2 and e-zTest MIPI DSI validation platforms. The new application-specific debug solutions support the Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) Alliance wireless standards for Camera Serial Interface (CSI-2) and Display Serial Interface (DSI). The two new wireless system-on-chip (SoC) validation platforms are the first commercial synthesizable virtual components for SoC emulation that meet MIPI standards. The EVE platforms are available now.
EVE introduced e-zTest 10GbE, which is a 10-Gigabit Ethernet validation platform for their ZeBu (Zero Bugs) family of system-on-chip (SoC) hardware-assisted verification platforms. The e-zTest 10GbE software is a transaction-based environment for high-speed validation of 10GbE functions in network routers, switches and controllers, and SoC application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) containing 10GbE ports.
EVE has enhanced the design debugging capabilities of their ZeBu (for Zero Bugs) emulation platform. ZeBu now features Combinational Signal Access (CSA), which enables engineers to dynamically generate complete waveforms of designs. Combinational Signal Access improves productivity and lowers the cost of ownership. CSA comes as a standard component to the ZeBu family. It is available now and, initially, works with zFast, ZeBu Fast Synthesis used with ZeBu emulation systems.
Through a TLM-2.0 transactor adapter, EVE’s ZeBu fast emulation platforms now support the Transaction-Level Modeling Standard (TLM)-2.0, the Open SystemC Initiative (OSCI) interface standard for SystemC model interoperability and reuse. TLM-2.0 support gives software developers and hardware verification teams an interoperable way to map their SoC development environments to EVE’s emulators. It ties both ESL virtual platforms and simulation environments more closely to ZeBu and to each other, providing a standards-based methodology to reuse components for software development, hardware verification and hardware/software co-verification.
