eInfochips to enable companies using the popular ARM architecture with AMBA® 4 AXI4 Verification IP
Ahmedabad, 3 March 2015: eInfochips, a leading Product Engineering Services provider has announced the availability of the AXI4Verification IP (VIP) to improve reliability of FPGA and SoC designs based on the popular ARM AMBA 4 architecture. The solution already supports AXI4 and AXI4-Lite, and will have AXI4-Stream variantavailable in Q1 FY16. It is ideal for companies that design complex, high-performance devices, to ensure robust standards-compliant AXI4 implementation. The eInfochips AXI4 VIP is a plug-and-play solution developed in SystemVerilog, and is available for OVM, VMM and UVM verification methodologies.
Parag Mehta, the Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer at eInfochips said, “Reliability is non-negotiable in the semiconductor industry, and so is time-to-market. We are key enablers for both these parameters for leading global corporations. Our VIPs, combined with our verification, implementation and DFT services have enabled more than 150 tape-outs already.”
ARM AMBA-based AXI4 Protocol and AXI4 VIP
AXI4 is anAMBA-based protocoldesigned specifically for high bandwidth and low latency performance. It is majorly deployed as a system interface in a majority of networking, storage, computing, consumer and IoT applications.The eInfochips AXI4 VIP supports functional coverage for checkers to ensure the IP/RTL behaviour is continuously monitored. For faster debug cycles, eInfochips AXI4 VIP has features such as TRANSACTION TRACKER and BANDWIDTH MONITOR.
The eInfochips AXI4 VIP can be introduced to an existing verification environment as a retrofit, given that it is designed with SystemVerilog and supports OVM, VMM and UVM. The complete feature set and specifications data sheet can be found here.
