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

Description and Features

The IEEE 802.3cb specifications-compliant 2.5GBase-KX/5GBase-KR/2.5GBase-T/5GBase-T Ethernet Verification IP validates designs' MAC-to-PHY layer interfaces. 2.5GBase-KX/5GBase-KR/2.5GBase-T/5GBase-T. It can operate in environments that use SystemVerilog, Vera, SystemC, E, and Verilog HDL. Experts in Ethernet who have created ethernet solutions for businesses like Intel, Cortina-Systems, Emulex, and Cisco are behind the development of the 2.5GBase-KX/5GBase-KR/2.5GBase-T/5GBase-T verification IP. We are aware of the steps involved in verifying an Ethernet product. 2.5GBase-KX/5GBase-KR/2.5GBase-T/5GBase-T SystemVerilog, VMM, RVM, AVM, OVM, UVM, Verilog, SystemC, VERA, Specman E, and non-standard verification environments all natively allow verification IP. 2.5GBase-KX/5GBase-KR/2.5GBase-T/5GBase-T To expedite debugging, Verification IP offers an optional Smart Visual Protocol Debugger, a GUI-based debugger.
