2.5G Base-KX/5GBase-KR/Base-T/5GBase-T Ethernet VIP

Description and Features

The 2.5GBase-KX/5GBase-KR/2.5GBase-T/5GBase-T Ethernet Verification IP is compliant with IEEE 802.3cb specifications and verifies MAC-to-PHY layer interfaces of designs with a Ethernet interface 2.5GBase-KX/5GBase-KR/2.5GBase-T/5GBase-T. It can work with SystemVerilog, Vera, SystemC, E and Verilog HDL environment. 2.5GBase-KX/5GBase- KR/2.5GBase-T/5GBase-T verification IP is developed by experts in Ethernet, who have developed ethernet products in companies like Intel, Cortina-Systems, Emulex, Cisco. We know what it takes to verify a ethernet product. 2.5GBase-KX/5GBase-KR/2.5GBase-T/5GBase-T Verification IP is supported natively in SystemVerilog, VMM, RVM, AVM, OVM, UVM, Verilog, SystemC, VERA, Specman E and non-standard verification env 2.5GBase-KX/5GBase-KR/2.5GBase-T/5GBase-T Verification IP comes with optional Smart Visual Protocol Debugger which is GUI based debugger to speed up debugging.
