Silicon Interfaces, a high-end design services provider, today announced the availability of Bluetooth and USB 2.0 verification intellectual property (IP) offerings based on OpenVera(TM) Assertions (OVA). These easy-to-use OVA verification IP solutions significantly reduce the time necessary to create the verification infrastructure and automated testbench environment required for verifying complex Bluetooth and USB 2.0 design interfaces, and ensure thorough protocol checking. The Bluetooth and USB 2.0 verification IP increase the portfolio of Silicon Interfaces’ OpenVera-based verification IP and are available through Silicon Cores, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Silicon Interfaces.
“With the increasing pressure of time-to-market deadlines and design cycle reductions, our customers can reap significant benefits, including greater productivity and reduced verification costs, by using OVA-based Bluetooth and USB checkers,” said Kiran Patel, program manager of Silicon Cores’ IP Development Program. “Our own productivity has more than doubled by using OVA instead of hardware description language (HDL)-based verification IP.”
“Silicon Interfaces is focused on providing efficient, reusable and scalable verification IP for the rapidly growing OpenVera community,” said Deepak Parikh, North America manager of operations at Silicon Interfaces. “We are now expanding our verification IP offerings to support OVA-based verification to address the needs of our growing global customer base for OVA verification IP.”
“The OVA community is requesting OVA verification checkers and IP to jumpstart their verification environments,” said James Watts, OpenVera program manager at Synopsys, Inc. “The OpenVera community welcomes the availability of Silicon Cores’ OVA-based verification IP, marking growing support for the language.”
