PCIe SR-IOV Simulation Verification IP (VIP)

Specification Support

The Cadence SR-IOV VIP provides a means to form and operate a SR hierarchy and the ability to generate and check related traffic per virtual function. This product complements the PCI-Express (PCIe) VIP.

The SR-IOV VIP is a higher layer above the PCI-Express (PCIe) VIP. It enables the definitions of virtual functions (VF) and physical functions (PF), and an active SR-PCIM performs checks for related traffic.
