Synopsys Releases Verification IP for Mobile PCIe Technology

   Native SystemVerilog-based VIP for PCI Express architecture now supports M-PCIe technology, with built-in coverage, verification plan and protocol-aware debug

Synopsys, providing software, IP and services used to accelerate innovation in chips and electronic systems, today announced the availability of verification IP (VIP) for the M-PCIe™ protocol, including built-in M-PHY® as defined by the MIPI® Alliance specification. SynopsysBased on its native System Verilog  VIP architecture, Synopsys’ VIP for M-PCIe technology enables enhanced performance, ease of use and debug in System Verilog UVM environments. The Synopsys VIP for M-PCIe is integrated with Synopsys’ Verdi® Protocol Analyzer, a protocol-aware environment that speeds debug by providing simplified views of protocol traffic. The addition of M-PCIe technology to Synopsys’ VIP for PCI Express® architecture provides mobile and low power PCI Express design and integration teams with a full-featured, System Verilog UVM solution to accelerate verification and coverage closure.

“As an active PCI-SIG member, Synopsys has been a valued contributor to the advancement of PCIe technology,” said Al Yanes, PCI-SIG chairman and president. “The Synopsys VIP support for the M-PCIe architecture further helps the PCI Express ecosystem attain adoption within an increasing range of platforms.”

“The release of new protocol versions to address new market segments creates a complex and lengthy ramp-up process for design teams as they strive to rapidly verify compliance against the new specification,” said Debashis Chowdhury, vice president of R&D for the Synopsys Verification Group.  “We continue to deliver VIP for new versions of protocols to enable our customers to achieve their SoC verification closure goals and accelerate time-to-market.  The new Synopsys’ VIP for M-PCIe protocol provides designers with the built-in protocol knowledge, features and methodology support to save time, increase design quality and meet project schedules.”

The VIP for M-PCIe is a part of Synopsys’ comprehensive verification IP portfolio for PCIe, which supports all versions of the PCIe technology and NVMe. Synopsys’ complete M-PCIe IP solution consisting of verification IP, a silicon-proven DesignWare M-PCIe digital controller and M-PHY enables project teams to accelerate development of M-PCIe-based SoCs and hit critical market windows.
