Questa Verification IP


Questa Verification IP improves quality and reduces schedule times by building protocol and methodology reusable components that support many industry standard interfaces.

The Questa Verification IP (QVIP) portfolio provides coverage across a broad portfolio of over 100 standard interface protocols. Questa VIP delivers a complete verification solution including ready-to use test plans, test suites, checkers, and coverage models, making it easy to adopt and implement.

Introducing Questa Verification IP

The best way to create a SoC is with design IP: blocks that connect to standard buses such as AMBA AXI or PCIe, or memory devices. How do you then check that your chip works correctly with the IP? You need to create stimulus that follows the protocol, but who has time to become an expert at each protocol? The best way to verify your design is with Verification IP that has deep knowledge of the protocol. Siemens QVIP is available for a wide range of protocols such as AXI, AHB, PCIe/NVMe, Ethernet, USB, Serial, plus DRAM and Flash memories.

Questa Verification IP improves quality and reduces schedule risk with a broad portfolio of reusable protocol and methodology components that support a wide range of industry-standard interfaces, eliminating time spent developing and maintaining custom BFMs, verification components, or VIP.

Verification IP Memory Models & Protocols

Questa Verification IP integrates seamlessly into all verification environments on any simulator. With a consistent and easy-to-use UVM architecture across all protocols, QVIP ensures maximum productivity and flexibility for the verification of block level, subsystem, and SoC designs.
