We have talked about Cadence subsystem IP strategy, illustrated by NVM Express subsystem IP, in a previous blog. What we said was that “A subsystem IP based approach will also speed up the software development and validation phase: if the IP provider is able to propose the right tools, like the associated Verification IP (VIP), the software development tools tightly coupled with the subsystem description model, as well as proper emulation and prototyping support, the (S/W & H/W) development team can simply go faster”. This webinar from Cadence, titled “Shorter, better and easier PCIe and NVM Express Verification flow with advanced technologies” illustrates how important is the Verification to support subsystem IP integration.

PCI Express is everywhere! Servers, storage, communication and consumer devices are all leveraging this popular technology. New standards on top of PCIe are arising to address and optimize new application-driven interfaces (SR-IOV, MR-IOV, Thunderbolt and NVM Express).
Each introduction of a new protocol on top of the already-complex PCIe design creates new verification challenges that require deep understanding of the protocols and extensive time and resources to test compliance to the specifications and optimize performance consumption.
This webinar will present the technical challenges of advanced PCIe-based design verification, and the latest methodologies and tools to address them.
Real world case studies, describing how PCIe and NVMe-based designs can be tested that minimize time and effort will be presented and analyzed.
This webinar will teach you:
- What are the verification pitfalls of PCIe and NVMe protocols
- What are the best practices for verification of layered protocols like PCIe and NVMe
- How to apply metric driven verification techniques to speed up the verification process of PCIe device
- How to identify performance issues during the verification process
- How to maximize reuse of verification components when dealing with new generations of specification
Estimated length: 40 minutes, 10 minutes Q&A
