Questa Verification IP for SATA supports all SATA speeds from Gen1 to Gen3, offering a complete verification solution for designs containing SATA interfaces. Built upon native System Verilog and UVM, QVIP for SATA provides bus functional models (BFM) with complete functionality on specification Revision 3.3 for all SATA use models. QVIP for SATA comes with support of major types of ATA commands over the SATA interface with assertions for exhaustive protocol checks on all supported layers and interfaces. QVIP for SATA also provides an extensive compliance test suite (CTS) to perform SATA interoperability tests. Architected for ease-of-use, QVIP is easy to integrate in all test benches in minimal time, quickly enabling productive verification. QVIP is integrated with all Siemens EDA functional verification tools and enables verification on all platforms, ensuring fast and complete verification closure. QVIP supports on all major simulators (Questa Sim, VCS, and Incisive) and methodologies (UVM). QVIP for SATA supports various configurations for the verification of Host and Device over serial and parallel interfaces.
