VC Verification IP for Fibre Channel

Synopsys VC Verification IP (VIP) for Fibre Channel is designed to thoroughly verify Fibre Channel designs using both random and directed simulation. The Fibre Channel VIP provides full protocol functionality and includes application layers that vastly simplify testbench development. Application layers provide simple APIs to act as a SCSI initiator, SCSI target or as a user-defined application.
