Bristol, UK, 23 September 2014 –T&VS, a leader in software test and hardware verification solutions, today announced that it has joined the MIPI Alliance, which develops interface specifications for mobile and mobile-influenced industries. The move reflects the demand for T&VS’ Verification IP, especially in the mobile application sector that is moving quickly and thus creating new opportunities for the company.
Mike Bartley, CEO and Founder of T&VS commented, “Companies developing IP and chips for the mobile SoC market recognise the importance of getting to market quickly with designs that work. These factors are of the utmost importance and so make VIP an obvious choice.”
The Verification IP (VIP) supplied by T&VS follows a well-defined development process that starts with a feature extraction based on the interface specification from the MIPI Alliance. Not only does this provide a common start point with the client but importantly, an independent development of the VIP. All the VIP deliverables are also linked to the specification through the feature extraction, thus making it easier for users to understand the objectives of the VIP.
T&VS’s MIPI VIP suite, offered as part of its asureVIP portfolio, continues to expand. The company is also working closely with a number of customers to develop new VIP or to update existing VIP to reflect new MIPI Alliance standards or new versions of existing standards. Potential clients can be confident in the quality of T&VS VIP through evaluation of existing VIP.
Bartley added, “The fact that T&VS delivers VIP with source code also gives the client several advantages including no license issues and easier debug. Our clients find that larger companies are not quite so flexible as T&VS and we are also able to respond more quickly to the new MIPI Alliance standards.”
