Rapid IO Verification IP provides an smart way to verify the RapidIO bi-directional two-wire bus. The RapidIO Verification IP is compliant with RapidIO Trade Association, RapidIO Interconnect Specification version 4.1 and older. RapidIO VIP is implemented in a layered fashion, which is basically divided into a physical layer, transport layer and logical layer. The SmartDV's RapidIO Verification IP has both the incarnations of RapidIO technology: Parallel RapidIO and Serial RapidIO (SRIO). The RapidIO VIP 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 in SystemVerilog, VMM, RVM, AVM, OVM, UVM, Verilog, SystemC, VERA, Specman E and nonstandard verification env
Supports communication with mailboxes via messages.
Supports generation and reaction to flow control.
Supports out of order transaction delivery based on the prioritization.
Supports critical request flow ordering.
Very flexible to insert errors in serial lanes.
Supports Error Management Extensions.
Provides error injection and error detection with a wide variety of error types, which includes • Under and oversize packet. • CRC errors. • Invalid code group insertion. • Invalid /K/ characters insertion. • Lane Skew insertion. • Error on control symbol. • Unsupported packet types.
Supports cancellation and retrying of packets mechanisms.
Support all types of timing and protocol violation detection.
Supports constraints Randomization.
Status counters to keep track of various events, which includes • Corrupted/uncorrupted packets. • Corrupted/uncorrupted control symbols. • Type of packet. • CRC error. • Total number of errors detect
Complete testsuite to test every feature of RapidIO spec and also as per RIO LAB testsuite.
