VC Verification IP for FlexRay™

Synopsys® VC Verification IP for FlexRay™ provides a comprehensive set of protocol, methodology, verification and productivity features, enabling users to achieve accelerated verification closure of FlexRay designs.

Synopsys VC VIP, based on its next generation architecture and implemented in native SystemVerilog and UVM, runs natively on all major simulators. VC VIP can be integrated, configured and customized with minimal effort. Test bench development is accelerated with the assistance of built-in verification plans, functional coverage, example tests and comprehensive collection of sequences.

VC VIP for FlexRay is integrated with Verdi® Protocol Analyzer, a protocol aware debug environment that gives users an easy to understand, graphical view of complex protocol traffic.
