  • Realistic traffic arbitration among CXL.IO, CXL.Cache, CXL.Mem and CXL control packets
  • Highly randomized and configurable
  • Provides various callbacks and simplified APIs for tests writing
  • Protocol analyzer debugging trace files
  • User customizable way of FLIT packing
  • Support full cache coherent load/store operations
  • Support automatic credit-based CXL data flow control
  • Supports CXL virtual LSM state machines
  • Supports CXL link layer retry
  • Supports CXL power management
  • Support CXL reset mechanisms
  • Host BFM Features
    • Automatic bus enumeration and configuration of the CXL hierarchies
    • Support memory mapped registers (RCRB and MEMBAR0 region)
    • Contains home agent with snooper filter of unlimited size
    • Host memory of unlimited size
