T2M Verification IPs NFC VIP


Description and Features

NFC (Near Field Communication) Verification IP offers an innovative way to validate NFC, which is a straightforward wireless connection between closely connected devices. Different data speeds might be used for NFC Verification IP data transmission. The NFC Verification IP offers the following capabilities and is completely compliance with the standards ISO/IEC-18092, ISO/IEC-14443, ISO/IEC-15693, ECMA-340, and NFC FORUM Specifications. SystemVerilog, VMM, RVM, AVM, OVM, UVM, Verilog, SystemC, VERA, Specman E, and non-standard verification environments all natively enable NFC Verification IP. The Smart Visual Protocol Debugger (Smart ViPDebug), a GUI-based debugger that speeds up debugging, is an optional component of the NFC Verification IP.
