T2M Verification IPs Octal SPI VIP


Description and Features

The serial synchronous communication protocol is called octal SPI. It comes with a comprehensive test suite that covers the majority of potential scenarios. It executes all conceivable protocol tests in a guided or highly randomized manner, adding the opportunity to generate the greatest number of situations to successfully check the DUT. It is compatible with all Verilog simulators that support SystemVerilog and the Verilog HDL environment. Verilog, SystemVerilog, SystemC, VERA, Specman E, and non-standard verification environments all natively enable Octal SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface) Verification IP. An optional Smart Visual Protocol Debugger, a GUI-based debugger to speed up debugging, is included with Octal SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface) Verification IP.
