AVIP for HDMI 2.0

The Cadence® Accelerated Verification IP (AVIP) enables design acceleration using the Cadence Palladium® Verification Computing Platform, and supports a variety of use modes to enable both validation of systems and subsystems, as well as more extensive protocol compliance verification of block- and IP-level designs.

The AVIP library for HDMI is a set of ready-made, highly configurable Verification IP for the HDMI interface. It enables tests to be run in a pure simulation environment, with the Cadence Xcelium simulator, or in simulation acceleration with the Xcelium simulator and the Palladium Verification Computing Platform.

The AVIP for HDMI 2.0 is a complementary product to the Cadence VIP for HDMI, and enables simulation acceleration and virtual emulation with the C++ environment, for subsystem- and system-level verification.

Specification Support

The AVIP library for HDMI is based on the HDMI Specification Version 2.0 (http://hdmiforum.org/). The AVIP for HDMI 2.0 is backward compatible with the AVIP for HDMI 1.4.
