eInfochips Debuts AMBA AHB Verification Component for Mentor Graphics QVP

eInfochips, Inc., a leading IP leveraged design services company offering silicon design and verification services, IP cores and embedded systems solutions, announced the availability of AMBA AHB Verification component for the Mentor Graphics(R) Questa(TM) Vanguard program. AMBA AHB verification IP provides necessary building blocks for efficient design-under-test (DUT) for module and system-level verification, including comprehensive assertion testing. Through the Questa Vanguard program, eInfochips will provide verification IP options to help build an established, comprehensive SystemVerilog community for the Questa advanced verification platform user.

“Reduced cost & time-to-verify complex SoCs are some of the direct customer benefits associated with using AMBA AHB VC,” said Tapan Joshi, Vice President marketing at eInfochips. “eInfochips’ object-oriented verification methodology easily supports scalability and re-usability in verification components, enabling them to be used across different modules and projects.”

“The Questa(TM) Vanguard Program (QVP) offers enhanced verification options for Questa users and helps build a comprehensive SystemVerilog ecosystem. Through the Questa Vanguard Program the AMBA AHB verification component provides an integrated development environment, which enables customers to work with assertions, coverage and edit code, view waveforms all in a single window, resulting in reduced time-to-debug,” said Dennis Brophy, Mentor Graphics director of strategic business development, Design Verification and Test division.

An Integrated Solution for AMBA AHB Verification
The AMBA AHB SystemVerilog verification component is suitable for verification of AMBA AHB master and slave DUT.
