SmartDV Adds New Verification IP to Support OpenCAPI Standard

First to Market OpenCAPI Verification IP

SAN JOSE, CALIF –– June 25, 2019 –– SmartDV™ Technologies, the Proven and Trusted choice for Verification Intellectual Property (IP), added new Verification IP to support the OpenCAPI standard aimed at boosting the performance of data center servers tasked with analyzing large amounts of data.

“OpenCAPI is an important new development that enables data to move through the network faster and backed by the largest enterprise networking companies,” states Deepak Kumar Tala, managing director SmartDV. “Supporting this effort with a verified Verification IP solution will accelerate OpenCAPI’s adoption and acceptance.”

The first commercially available OpenCAPI Verification IP is compatible with OpenCAPI 3.0 and 3.1. It verifies OpenCAPI interfaces and includes an extensive test suite that performs random or directed protocol tests to create a range of scenarios to effectively verify the design under test.

SmartDV’s OpenCAPI Verification IP is supported for all major verification languages and methodologies, including open verification methodology (OVM), universal verification methodology (UVM) and SystemC.

“The OpenCAPI Consortium is an open forum to manage the OpenCAPI specification and ecosystem, and we welcome the support of SmartDV and its exceptional verification solutions,” remarks Myron Slota, OpenCAPI Consortium president.
