T2M Verification IPs Octal SPI VIP


Description and Features

Octal SPI is the serial synchronous communication protocol. It includes an extensive test suite covering most of the possible scenarios. It performs all possible protocol tests in a directed or a highly randomized fashion which adds the possibility to create the widest range of scenarios to verify the DUT effectively. It can work with Verilog HDL environment and works with all Verilog simulators that are support SystemVerilog. Octal SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface) Verification IP issupported natively in SystemVerilog, VMM, RVM, AVM, OVM, UVM, Verilog, SystemC, VERA, Specman E and non-standard verification env Octal SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface) Verification IP comes with optional Smart Visual Protocol Debugger which is GUI based debugger to speed up debugging.
