Newark, Calif., March 24 2005. nSys Design Systems Pvt. Ltd. a rapidly emerging leader for Verification IPs, today announced that Cisco Systems has signed an agreement to license nSys PCI Express nVS verification tools for use in its chip design efforts. Cisco engineers across multiple projects are now using PCI Express nVS product to verify the correct operation of the PCI Express interface in their chip designs. The tool helps Cisco engineers catch potential bugs during pre-silicon verification.
The PCI Express architecture is a fast emerging as the serial interconnect technology of future that provides high-bandwidth, low pin-count implementations for optimized performance.
“The nVS for PCI Express from nSys has rich set of features that are required not only for verifying compliance to standards but also for testing that the PCI Express core is integrated properly with the rest of the SoC. With PCI Express nVS, nSys is providing Cisco with a complete verification solution integrated to work with their verification environments across multiple business units.” said nSys Director Atul Bhatia.
About PCI Express nVS:
The nVS (nSys Verification Suite) from nSys is the most widely accepted and proven Verification IP for PCI Express available in native Verilog and VHDL.
The nVS is a complete verification suite consisting of Bus Function Model (BFM), Monitor/Checker & Test Suites for functional verification of PCI Express components. The nVS allows design and verification engineers to quickly & extensively test the entire functionality of their PCI Express compliant devices. Availability of Test Suites enables the designer to focus on features unique to his design. The nVS leverages advanced verification techniques in creating a versatile testbench environment.
- Ready-to-test in less than an hour
- Support for: Endpoints, RC/ Switch, Bridges
- Support for all Link widths from x1 to x32
- Send completely automated/user configured packets in any of the three layers
- Inject/detect errors in all the 3 layers
- Test Suites: Random, Compliance, Error, Directed Tests
- Consistent interface across the nVS family
nSys provides flexible solutions to reduce time-to-market for its customers by addressing their verification needs for SoC development. By leveraging its vast experience in standards-based product development, the nSys team creates verification solutions that solve the most challenging functional verification problems in the world. The nSys solutions are in the form of Verification IPs backed by services.
