Writing tests to verify protocols is time consuming, challenging and requires deep protocol and methodology expertise. Synopsys testbenches help eliminate the task of writing compliance tests for today’s complex protocols.
The Ethernet test suite is a complete self-contained and design-proven testbench that covers the UNH (University of New Hampshire) interoperability test suite and is extended to cover additional tests. It spans normal data exchange cases, error injected cases and corner case scenarios to help test Ethernet designs for a wide spectrum of scenarios. It is provided as Verilog source code to simplify integration, enable user customization and maximize reuse across projects. The test suite is included with VC VIP for Ethernet supporting 10/100/1G/10G/25G/40G/50G/100G and is provided as part of the VIP product deliverables.
