APB VIP (AMBA Advanced Peripheral Bus Verification IP)
The Master and Slave AMBA APB VIP (Advanced Peripheral Bus) is a highly flexible and configurable verification IP that can be easily integrated into any SOC verification environment. Supporting both UVM and OVM, this APB VIP is part of the asureVIP portfolio of implementation-proven VIP offerings.

The Master and Slave components have been interoperability tested and come with a Bus Monitor for performing all protocol checks. The monitor also performs key protocol checks and reports errors for non compliance with APB 4.0 / 3.0 specification. This VIP has also been verified for protocol compliance using asureSIGN, T&VS’ in-house Requirements Management and Tracking tool.

Customers using the asureVIP products do so with the confidence of knowing that they have been independently developed by T&VS and successfully deployed by leading SoC companies around the world.

T&VS can also offer asureVIP customers an independent hardware verification service (asureVERIF) that not only reduces development costs and time-to-to-market, but also improves product quality.
