Native SystemVerilog HDMI VIP Includes Built-In Coverage, Verification Planning and Protocol-Aware Debug

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 24, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS), today announced the availability of Verification IP (VIP) for the HDMI version 2.0a standard, supporting High Dynamic Range (HDR) static metadata extensions and built-in support for High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) version 2.2. Synopsys VC VIP for HDMI enables system-on-chip (SoC) teams to design next-generation multimedia chips with ease of use, fast integration and optimum performance, resulting in accelerated verification closure.

"Consumer electronics companies and content providers are rapidly deploying features enabled by the latest HDMI 2.0a specification, such as HDR video formats and high-bandwidth 4K/UltraHD picture quality," said Rob Tobias, president of HDMI Licensing, LLC. "It's important that our adopters are working to ensure the full 4K/UltraHD experience is delivered to consumers."

Synopsys VIP for HDMI supports callbacks for creating real-time audio/video streaming examples, and custom video timing formats for faster simulation times. It also includes built-in HDCP 2.2 content protection, a security requirement for protecting transfer of UHD 4K content and creating a secured connection between source and display. Synopsys VIP is natively integrated with the Verdi® Protocol Analyzer debug solution and features advanced debug ports for data island, audio and video timing, authentication and encryption for easy and fast debug. Built-in coverage and verification plans are also included to speed up verification coverage closure.

"We continue to collaborate extensively with many leading-edge SoC design teams as new protocols are developed, delivering increased performance and features," said Vikas Gautam, group director of VIP R&D and corporate applications for the Synopsys Verification Group. "With the introduction of Synopsys HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 VIP, we provide our customers with advanced capabilities to accelerate the verification closure of their multimedia SoC designs."
