SmartDV compiler technology speeds development, customization, feature enhancements and support turnaround by automating VIP development
SAN DIEGO, CA – February 27, 2015 – SmartDV Technologies, the verification intellectual property (VIP) company, has added six new VIPs to an already extensive VIP portfolio. The new additions include USB-Power Delivery, MIPI-CPHY, MIPI-DBI, AMBA5 CHI, LPDDR4 and DDR4. The company has been successful in speeding up VIP development through their compiler technology, which accelerates development, customization, feature enhancements and support turnaround through unprecedented automation. This technology improves performance by a factor of 2-4x compared with VIP from competing vendors.
SmartDV’s VIP portfolio now stands at over 75, a testament to the company’s commitment to develop and deliver VIPs for all protocols. The company will be showcasing the new portfolio additions at DVCon 2015 at the Doubletree Hotel in San Jose, CA on March 2nd to 4th in booth #404.
SmartDV VIPs are shipped with compliance test suites, comprehensive functional coverage models, and a rich set of customization and protocol checks. Customers have source code access to everything except base bus functional models (BFMs), enabling them to quickly and easily edit/modify test cases, coverage models, and sequence libraries that are shipped with each VIP package. VIPs can be delivered in the native language of the customer’s choosing – for example, UVM, System Verilog, VMM, OVM, SystemC, and Specman e.
A short overview of these new VIPs can be found at:
- USB-Power Delivery
- AMBA5 CHI
USB-PD, MIPI-CPHY, and MIPI-DBI verification IP have been deployed by multiple customers, including top semiconductor companies. AMBA5 CHI, DDR4 and LPPD4 are in beta.
“For new protocol specifications or standards, our goal is to help customers get access to high quality, high-performing VIPs as early as possible in the design verification cycle without paying a premium for early engagement,” said Harish Poojary, head of US operations and vice-president of worldwide sales and business development at SmartDV. “We engage with customers early to develop VIPs for new standards and also customize the interface to meet their requirements. We always have a paid customer before we announce general availability.”
