HDH PIF 32000 - The Verification IP for the Tensilica Processor Interface (PIF)®
The VIP for PIF supports the e/Specman hardware verification language and the e Reuse Methodology (eRM). The eRM defines a coverage driven methodology for using a constrained random environment. The Master and Slave VIP can be configured to represent any PIF-based master or slave component. The protocol monitors provide debug information, protocol violation notification and protocol coverage metrics. In addition the monitor includes performance monitoring capabilities enabling designers to accurately measure the bandwidth and latency of the subsystem.
PIF eVC is the complete solution for the verification of PIFbased systems. It has a complete built-in set of predefined coverage items and protocol checkers that are fully compliant with PIF protocol. Most of possible PIF scenarios are defined trought predefined sequences. PIF eVC can be used verification environments both at module, subsystem
and system level.
