With the complexity and interoperability needs of today's systems the use of standard interfaces such as PCIe and MIPI is a must. Verification of IP to implement these interfaces for re-use within a wide variety of systems can be time consuming and hard to get right. Users of IP are often faced with issues of integration and getting caught in the complex details of the IP implementation when their real goal is to verify design specific and system functionality. Verification IP is available to solve these issues, but too often comes with a high integration effort and a steep learning curve of its own that users must overcome before they can become truly productive.
This session will cover the use of UVM based verification IP for protocols such as PCI Express and MIPI CSI and DSI.
