MIPI UniPro for PCIe Veterans

The MIPI Unified Protocol (UniPro) specification defines a layered protocol for interconnecting devices and components within mobile device systems. It is applicable to a wide range of component types including application processors, co-processors, and modems. MIPI UniPro powers the JEDEC UFS, MIPI DSI2 and MIPI CSI3 applications. As of now, MIPI UniPro has been adopted the most in the mobile storage segment through JEDEC UFS. Adoption of MIPI UniPro  and MIPI M-PHY provides lower power and higher performance solutions.

The Synopsys NVMe VIP: A High Level View

Overview NVM Express or the Non-Volatile Memory Host Controller Interface (its prior name was NVMHCI, now shortened to NVMe) is a host-based software interface designed to communicate with Solid State storage devices across a PCIe fabric. The current Synopsys NVMe Verification IP (VIP) is a comprehensive testing vehicle which consists of two main subsystems – the first is the SVC (System Verification Component), the second is SVT (System Verification Technology).  The SVC layers are associated with the actual NVMe (and PCIe, etc.) protocol layers.  The SVT provides a verification methodology interface to UVM and other methodologies such as VMM and OVM.
