CyberTec Offers AMBA APB and PowerPC MPC8xx eVCs Developed Exclusively for Verisity's Specman Elite
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 3, 2002--Verisity, Ltd., the leading provider of functional verification automation, and CyberTec today announced the availability of an AMBA APB and PowerPC MPC8xx eVCs(TM) (e Verification Components) developed through Verisity's Verification Alliance Program(TM). eVCs are reusable plug-and-play verification components for standard interfaces based on Verisity's high-level verification language, e. The APB eVC from CyberTec contains all of the verification components for the AMBA APB (Advanced Peripheral Bus) portion of an ARM based SOC design and dramatically cuts the time it takes to create the system's verification environment. The AMBA APB eVC can be used in conjunction with the ARM AHB eVC offered by Verisity. The PowerPC MPC8xx eVC can be configured as multiple masters, slaves and protocol checkers for designs incorporating the PowerPC 8xx series processors, such as MPC823, MPC850 or MPC860.
"We are delighted to see CyberTec leveraging their extensive experience in ARM and PowerPC based SOC verification using Specman Elite(TM). The addition of these two new eVCs will offer our customer base valuable verification IP to ramp up their verification environments and hit those interface bugs quicker," said Dave Tokic, director of strategic marketing for Verisity.
"We have completed many embedded processor projects which utilize ARM cores and system level verification using the MPC8xx PowerPC family," said Hiroshi Nonoshita, director of Engineering for CyberTec. "It seemed natural for us to leverage our Specman Elite and CPU core knowledge to develop these reusable verification environments. In addition to having interfaces to Verilog and VHDL simulators, all of our eVCs have been verified with SystemC using Specman Elite as the verification engine."
About AMBA APB eVC
The AMBA APB eVC is a configurable e verification environment suitable for any device-under-test (DUT) that contains an APB bus. The APB eVC includes APB master and slave bus functional models, which can emulate master and slave behavior. The APB eVC supports the generation and injection of bus traffic as a master. The APB eVC also includes bus protocol checker and coverage collection of bus traffic. This APB eVC can be used for a single APB device (master and slave) and/or a system-level APB environment with several APB devices.
The APB eVC is available immediately on all platforms supported by Verisity's Specman Elite.
About PowerPC MPC8xx eVC
The PowerPC MPC8xx eVC is a configurable e verification environment suitable for any device-under-test (DUT) that contains a PowerPC 8xx bus interface. The MPC8xx eVC includes MPC8xx master and slave bus functional models, which can emulate master and slave behavior. The MPC8xx eVC supports the generation and injection of bus traffic as a master with arbitration for multi-master systems. The MPC8xx eVC also includes bus protocol checker and coverage collection of bus traffic. This MPC8xx eVC can be used for a single MPC8xx device (master and slave) and/or a system-level MPC8xx environment with several MPC8xx devices.
The MPC8xx eVC is available immediately on all platforms supported by Verisity's Specman Elite.
