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

This UVM VIP has extensive constrained-random stimuli generation capabilities, configurable monitors and checks to ensure protocol compliance for Host as wells as Peripherals. Pre-defined coverage bins enable easier extension and coverage collection.

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.
