Part of the Cadence VIP Catalog
The Cadence MIPI CSI-2 Verification IP (VIP) provides a mature, highly capable compliance verification solution for the MIPI CSI-2 Protocol. Used on multiple production designs, the MIPI CSI-2 VIP is applicable for IP, SoC, and system-level verification. The VIP is compatible with the industry standard Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) and runs on the Cadence Incisive Enterprise Simulator
and also the Synopsys VCS® and Mentor Graphics Questa® simulators. The MIPI CSI-2 VIP supports the unique Compliance Management System
(CMS) which provides interactive, graphical analysis of coverage results correlated with the protocol specification.
||Take advantage of thousands of automatic protocol checks performed by the VIP and the extensive compliance test suite. Be confident in knowing the VIP has been used in thousands of production designs. |
||One consistent testbench interface spans the entire Cadence VIP Catalog ensuring straightforward chip level verification. Innovative licensing makes it affordable to perform multi-protocol verification. Also compatible with the extensive Cadence Memory Portfolio for full SoC verification.|

The MIP CSI-2 VIP provides a highly capable protocol compliance verification solution called the Compliance Management System
. CMS includes a verification plan and a full suite of tests. It drives defined, constrained random bus traffic at all layers to offload this time consuming task from you. Injected errors and error conditions are flagged and recovered according to MIPI CSI-2 specifications. The VIP's sequence generation engine applies a context-sensitive approach to test plan execution. This greatly speeds the verification task and increases verification productivity. A cumulative coverage database ensures that the design under test is sufficiently exercised.
