Synopsys Delivers Industry's First Ethernet 400G Verification IP for Next-Generation Networking and Communications Systems

Native SystemVerilog Ethernet VIP Features Built-in Coverage, Verification Planning, Protocol-Aware Debug and Source Code Test Suites

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 23, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — Synopsys, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNPS) today announced the availability of the industry's first verification IP (VIP) and source code test suite to support the proposed IEEE P802.3bs/D1.0 Ethernet 400G standard. As the need for increased bandwidth to support video-on-demand, social networking and cloud services continues to rise, Synopsys VC VIP for Ethernet 400G enables system-on-chip (SoC) teams to design next-generation networking chips for data centers with ease of use and integration, resulting in accelerated verification closure and time to market. 

Synopsys VC VIP for Ethernet uses a native SystemVerilog Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) architecture, protocol-aware debug and source code test suites. Synopsys VC 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. In addition, source code UNH-IOL test suites are also available for key Ethernet features and clauses, allowing teams to quickly jumpstart their own custom testing and speed up verification time.

"Synopsys is committed to providing a comprehensive Ethernet solution for all speeds, including 25G, 40G, 50G, 100G and the newest 400G standards," said Vikas Gautam, group director of VIP R&D and corporate applications for the Synopsys Verification Group. "Working through our close collaborations with SoC industry leaders, we continue to expand our next-generation Verification IP solutions across all standard protocols."


Synopsys VC VIP for Ethernet 400G and source code test suites are both available today as early access standalone products.
