Synopsys Delivers Industry's First SAS 24G Verification IP for Enterprise Storage Systems

First Verification IP Product Line That Includes All SAS Interface Speed Configurations

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif - Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today announced the availability of the industry's first verification IP (VIP) to support the Serial-attached SCSI (SAS) 24G standard, making it the first VIP product line to support all SAS interface speed configurations. With increasing demands for the storage, backup and transmission of data, enterprise storage systems are challenged to rapidly transmit data across devices. Synopsys VC VIP for SAS delivers a comprehensive VIP solution for all SAS designs including the newly introduced 24G standard, enabling system-on-chip (SoC) teams to accelerate verification closure.

Synopsys' VC VIP for SAS 24G uses a SystemVerilog, UVM-compliant interface for ease of integration into verification environments and for optimal performance. Synopsys VIP is capable of switching speed configurations dynamically at run time and includes an extensive and customizable set of frame generation and error injection capabilities, enabling significant productivity gains for SoC teams.  

"We continue to expand our next-generation Verification IP solutions with the latest protocols and specifications, enabling design teams to deliver the most advanced SoCs," said Vikas Gautam, group director of VIP R&D and corporate applications for the Synopsys Verification Group. "With the addition of SAS 24G VIP, we further extend our broad offering in the storage space."


Synopsys VC VIP for SAS supporting all interface speed configurations is available today as a standalone product, as well as being included in the Synopsys VC VIP Library and the Verification Compiler™ products.
