AVIP for Ethernet USXGMII

The Cadence® Accelerated Verification IP (AVIP) for Ethernet USXGMII 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 Ethernet is a set of ready-made, highly configurable Verification IP for Ethernet USXGMII. 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 Ethernet USXGMII is a complementary product to the Cadence VIP for Ethernet, and enables simulation acceleration and virtual emulation with the C++ or UVM SystemVerilog environment, for subsystem- and system-level verification.

Specification Support

The AVIP for Ethernet is compliant with the IEEE 802.3 standard.
