Synopsys Launches Industry's First Technical Community Site Dedicated to Users of Verification IP
VIP-Central.org Serves as an Online Resource Connecting Protocol and Verification IP Experts to SoC Verification Engineers
"As each new SoC adds the next generations of different IP blocks, IP subsystems and frequent releases of new protocols, SoC companies are required to quickly ramp their verification teams to embrace these changes," said Rich Wawrzyniak, senior market analyst for ASIC and SoC at Semico Research. "The launch of VIP-Central.org as a technical resource for protocol-based verification will improve ramp times, act as a repository of knowledge and expertise for designers, and also enable the verification IP experts in the industry to share their best practices with the verification community."
With the increasing number of complex protocols used in SoCs, verification engineers face a tough challenge to quickly acquire the protocol expertise needed to verify a SoC as well as all of its on-chip fabrics and off-chip interfaces. The challenge is made tougher by the frequent release of new and more sophisticated generations of protocols to improve performance, power and quality of service. Verification engineers must complete many tasks requiring both protocol and methodology expertise including developing environments, integrating VIP, using and modifying test sequences, debugging complex protocol results and analyzing coverage data. VIP-Central.org is designed to help engineers quickly understand the intricacies and foibles of each protocol and how to effectively utilize industry-available verification IP to verify these protocols while employing methodologies such as UVM, OVM and VMM.
"VIP-Central.org represents an important milestone for the VIP user community," said Janick Bergeron, verification fellow at Synopsys. "As protocols become more intricate and SoC verification complexity continues to grow, VIP-Central.org offers a community-driven portal to share the learning from our successful customer VIP engagements, and enable exchange of ideas with other VIP experts, users and the entire SoC verification community."
VIP-Central.org is an industry-wide community site for system-on-chip (SoC) verification engineers and users of verification IP. It provides a centralized online resource of relevant forums and blogs focusing on verification of today's industry-standard protocols. Visit VIP-Central.org online at http://www.vip-central.org/.
