High-Performance PCIe 5.0 IP + VIP UVM Verification Environment

Presenters: Michal Pacula, Technical Support Manager, Aldec
Sampath Banka, Sr. Applications Engineer, PLDA
Florentin BOSSHARD, Verification Engineer, PLDA
Luis E. Rodriguez, Verification IP Solutions Manager, Avery
Thursday, October 15, 2020


Together with Aldec, PLDA and Avery Design Systems, we will present and demo our newest PCIe 5.0 IP + VIP UVM simulation and debugging environment. PLDA’s PCIE 5.0 XpressRich includes internal datapath automatic scaling, configurable pipelining, Rx stream mode for custom credit management, L1 PM substates, dynamically adjustable application clock frequency and clock/power gating. Avery’s APCIe-Xactor includes best-in-class Verification IP for PCIe GEN5, native SystemVerilog and UVM support, native randomization, layer wise protocol and debug tracker and 35+ callbacks for error injection. In Aldec’s Riviera-PRO you can run RTL simulation and debug, visualize simulation waveforms, view the graphical representation of the UVM components, objects and the transaction level modeling (TLM) connections, and as well as use code coverage to analyze the efficiency of the UVM tests for exercising various parts of the RTL code.
