The SGMII/1000Base-KX Verification IP is compliant with IEEE 802.3 specifications and verifies serial interfaces of designs with a 1G Ethernet interface SMII/1000Base-KX. It can work with SystemVerilog,Vera, SystemC, E and Verilog HDL environment. SGMII/1000BASE-KX verification IP 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.

SGMII/1000Base-KX VIP is supported natively in SystemVerilog, VMM, RVM, AVM, OVM, UVM, Verilog, SystemC, VERA, Specman E and non-standard verification env
