INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM, San Francisco, CA, September 9, 2004 – nSys (Netsys Software Pvt. Ltd.), a rapidly emerging provider of Verification IPs for emerging standards today announced nVS for the Advanced Switching Interconnect (ASI) technology a Verification Suite based on Verilog. The nVS for ASI is targeted to market segments, such as communications, storage, server and embedded solutions. The nVS for ASI significantly reduces the verification time for complex system-on-chip (SoC) designs that are using the ASI protocol.
“We are focused on providing feature rich yet low cost verification tools to industry leaders who are constantly incorporating emerging standards into their designs. The offering for the ASI for nVS is in Verilog and tested and validated using the Intel ASI bus functional model. It has friendliness and intuitiveness which the end user always like.” said Atul Bhatia, Director at nSys.
“Verification IP providers, such as nSys, have become an important part of the chip development ecosystem and play an important role in ensuring industrywide interoperability for standards based technology,” said Rajeev Kumar president of the ASI SIG and Switch Fabric Initiatives Manager at Intel. “Adopters of ASI technology will benefit by availability of verification IP for the technology and acceptance will be enhanced as the IP will be based on the proven technology of PCI Express.”
The nVS for ASI is backed by an efficient and knowledgeable customer support team. The nVS for ASI comes with a rich set of features including:
- Support for multiple instantiation to create complex verification environment
- Generating and driving bus traffic as a ASI requester and responding transactions as a ASI completer
- Injecting and detecting errors related to different layers
- Exhaustive built-in Test Suites such as Random Tests, Directed Tests, Error Tests
- Programmable Monitor and Checker
- Tests entire functionality of an interface without writing significant lines of code
- Consistency of interface, installation, operation and documentation across nSys family of nVS
- Experienced support team for help in integration or customization as well as development of user specific verification solution

About Advanced Switching
Advanced Switching uses the same physical and link layers as the PCI Express architecture to achieve widespread interoperability and availability of technology. At the transaction layer, Advanced Switching provides an array of specialized communications features, including high-availability functions, peer-to-peer and multicast networking, congestion and system management, scalability, and support for virtually any networking protocol. This optimized transaction layer provides equipment developers the flexibility to create value-added features into communications, storage and embedded solutions.
Together, PCI Express and Advanced Switching technologies ensure broadly available building blocks and tools that enable component and equipment makers to reuse technology across multiple products, reduce design costs and shorten the time it takes to get products to market.
About the ASI SIG
The ASI SIG is a nonprofit collaborative trade organization chartered with providing a switched fabric interconnect standard for the communications and compute industries. The ASI SIG provide the highest quality technical and marketing support to enable the marketplace to a create unique and interoperable set of building blocks for the communication, storage, blade server and embedded platforms. The ASI SIG board of directors includes Agere, Alcatel, Huawei, Intel, Siemens, Vitesse and Xilinx.
