VC Verification IP for SAS

Synopsys VC Verification IP (VIP) Serial SCSI (SAS) is designed to thoroughly verify your design using both random and directed simulation.

VC VIP SAS provides full SAS functionality and includes application layers that vastly simplify testbench development. Application layers provide simple APIs to generate SAS traffic: a SCSI application layer, an STP Host Exerciser and Management application layer.
