The VMM based UART VIP is complaint to National Semiconductor 16550 design. The UART interface allows a duplex, asynchronous, serial communication and is a widely used protocol for communication peripheral interface. The UART VIP is an interface typically between the microprocessor (DTE – Data Terminal Equipment) and a communication peripheral such as a Modem (DCE – Data communication Equipment). It is available as an UART transmitter and UART receiver or as a stand-alone UART monitor.
eInfochips' UART VIP is based on layered architecture of object oriented programming that allows coverage driven verification suitable for verifying UART Transmitter and UART Receiver devices.
