AVIP for USB 2.0

The Cadence® Accelerated Verification IP (AVIP) enables design acceleration using the Cadence Palladium® XP 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 USB 2.0 is a ready-made, highly configurable Verification IP for the USB interface. It enables tests to be run in a pure simulation environment, with the Cadence Incisive® Enterprise Simulator, or in simulation acceleration with the Incisive Enterprise Simulator and the Palladium XP platform.

The AVIP for USB 2.0 is complementary to Cadence Simulation VIP for USB 2.0, and enables you to easily move from simulation to simulation acceleration.

Specification Support

The AVIP for USB 2.0 is based on the USB 2.0 specification (http://www.usb.org/developers/docs/).
