-- Silicon Interfaces' IEEE 1394-1995/2000 Link Layer Controller uVC is a fully documented, off the shelf component using Cadence Incisive Plan-to-Closure Universal Reuse Methodology (URM) for functional verification environment. The URM Compliant uVC is based on an eRM compliant eVC which has been proven in the market. By Q1 2008, this uVC shall be available in OVM (Open SystemVerilog Verification methodology).
The IEEE 1394 -1995/2000 link layer controller (from now on referred to only as 1394) provides connectionless acknowledged data transfer services between a source node and destination node where node is an addressable device attached to the serial bus with at least a minimum set of control registers.
The IEEE 1394 Function Controller uVC verifies designs that include IEEE 1394 Function Controller. This uVC consists of a complete set of elements for stimulating, checking, and collecting coverage information for the IEEE 1394 protocol, as well as thoroughly exercises the link controller.
The uVC supports IEEE 1394 PHY specification at the Physical side and Transaction Layer specification at the Host side. Data transmission can be configured to be at 100, 200 or 400 Mbps and can also be configured to be asynchronous or isochronous transaction.
