CAN Bus VIP (CAN Verification IP) The CAN Bus VIP (Controller Area Network) is a highly flexible and configurable verification IP that can be easily integrated into any SOC verification environment.  Supporting UVM, this CAN Bus 2.0 VIP is part of the asureVIP portfolio of implementation-proven VIP offerings.

The CAN Bus VIP has been interoperability tested with both Slave and Master VIP configurations and comes with a Bus Monitor for performing all protocol checks. The monitor also performs key protocol checks and reports errors for non-compliance with CAN Bus Part A and B specifications.

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.
