Avery Design Systems Announces AMBA AXI and AHB Verification Solution

ANDOVER, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 18, 2010 — Avery Design Systems Inc., an innovator in functional verification productivity solutions, today announced the AMBA-Xactor verification solution supporting the AMBA 3.0 AXI and AMBA 2.0 AHB specifications.

AMBA-Xactor is a complete verification solution consisting of SystemVerilog OVM/VMM compliant master, slave, and interconnect Bus Functional Models (BFM), protocol checkers, constrained random transaction testing, and reference verification frameworks. The AMBA-Xactor allows design and verification engineers to quickly and extensively test the entire functionality of their AMBA compliant designs.

“AMBA-Xactor builds on our solid foundation as a leading supplier of PCI Express, USB 2.0/3.0, Serial ATA, and Parallel ATA verification solutions to IP vendors and semiconductor companies,” said Chris Browy, vice president of sales and marketing of Avery Design Systems.
