Avery Design Systems Adds NVM Express to Storage Standards Verification IP Solutions

ANDOVER, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 29, 2012 — Avery Design Systems Inc., an innovator in functional verification productivity solutions, today announced availability of its NVM-Xactor verification IP targeting Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) for high performance PCIe-based SSDs. NVM-Xactor extends Avery’s portfolio of storage-related VIP which also includes USB Attached SCSI (UASP), USB Mass Storage Class Bulk-Only Transport (BOT), MIPI Universal Flash Storage (UFS), and SATA.

NVM-Xactor is a complete verification solution for NVMe core and system design. NVM-Xactor allows design and verification engineers to quickly and extensively test the functionality of NVMe controller-based designs. The NVM-Xactor solution includes:

  • NVM host software BFM
  • NVM host and controller bus adaptor
  • Reference NVMe controller and adaptor
  • Producer-consumer scoreboard
  • Compliance testsuite
  • Comprehensive protocol checks
  • Protocol analyzer tracker
  • Functional coverage model
  • Works with any PCIe and AXI IP or VIP

NVM-Xactor works in conjunction with Avery’s leading PCI-Xactor PCI Express Verification IP solution to supply a complete NVMe subsystem verification environment. A NVM bus adaptor layer provides a virtual task interface to the NVM host software BFM to hook up to any bus interface such as PCIe and AMBA AXI which enables running the NVM host software BFM with or without the PCIe root complex and endpoint stacks yielding faster simulation performance for large data movement and supports both NVMe core-level and SOC-level verification environments. A reference NVMe controller layer also supports core-level verification by emulating the NAND Flash backend subsystem.

Models and compliance testsuites are developed in SystemVerilog and support UVM, OVM, and VMM environments.

“Avery is focused on delivering industry leading VIP for the rapidly emerging storage-related standards built on top of PCIe, USB, and MIPI base protocols”, says Chilai Huang, president of Avery Design Systems. “Our solution enables designers to thoroughly verify their designs functionally adhere to the new NVM Express standard and effectively pinpoint areas of non-compliance or performance bottlenecks.”
