Our friends in Synopsys’s Verification Group have been putting together an excellent set of Memory Verification IP (VIP) for DDR4, DDR3, LPDDR4, LPDDR3, that complements our other VIP for Flash, MIPI, PCIe, AMBA, Ethernet, HDMI, SATA, etc…
The verification folks going on the road to tell people about our memory VIP in a series of seminars in Marlborough, Irvine, Mountain View, Austin, Phoenix (June 2015) and Herzelia (July 2015).
This is a great, hands-on way to learn about the memory checkers and monitors that are available, how to configure testbenches, and then how to debug and extract coverage. There’s even a free lunch!
