CGMII 100G Ethernet VIP

The 100G Ethernet Verification IP is compliant with IEEE 802.3ba specifications and verifies MAC-to-PHY layer interfaces of designs with a 100G Ethernet interface CGMII. It can work with SystemVerilog,Vera, SystemC, E and Verilog HDL environment. Ethernet VIP is developed by experts in Ethernet, who have developed ethernet products in companies like Intel, Cortina-Systems, Emulex, Cisco. We know what it takes to verify a ethenet product.

CGMII 100G Ethernet VIP is supported natively in SystemVerilog, VMM, RVM, AVM, OVM, UVM, Verilog, SystemC, VERA, Specman E and non-standard verification env
