Synopsys Test Suites include UVM tests along with a UVM environment that help verify the IP/Subsystem covering the entire protocol specification. The test suite is delivered as source code with no encryption after installation. Licensed users can run parallel simulations. The tests are targeted to provide very high functional coverage, as close as possible to 100%, covering all protocol features, corner cases, error scenarios, stress tests, etc. The number of tests can be in the thousands for bigger protocols like PCIe, USB, Ethernet or few hundred for simpler protocols.
Since test suites are source code, the user has full control on all sequences and tests to modify, enhance or build new tests. Customers of Synopsys VIP Test Suites have been able to save months of testbench development, debug time, time to 1st test pass, start verification with limited protocol knowledge.
