T2M Verification IPs NVMe VIP


Description and Features

The NVMe bi-directional bus may be verified using the NVMe Verification IP. The NVMe Verification IP offers the following functionalities and is completely compatible with the NVM-Express-1_4- 2019. 06.10-Ratified specification. SystemVerilog, VMM, RVM, AVM, OVM, UVM, Verilog, SystemC, VERA, Specman E, and non-standard verification environments all natively support NVMe Verification IP. The optional Smart Visual Protocol Debugger for NVMe Verification IP is a GUI-based debugger that speeds up debugging.
