VC Verification IP for HMC

Synopsys® VC Verification IP for HMC provides a comprehensive set of protocol, methodology, verification and productivity features, enabling users to achieve accelerated verification closure of HMC designs.

Memory Model Certification

Synopsys provides a comprehensive set of DRAM and Flash Memory VIP that support the latest ratified and draft specifications from standards organizations such as JEDEC, ONFi, SD, and SPI. Synopsys’ VIP team works closely with leading memory vendors to certify 100% compatibility with their manufactured parts. Synopsys Memory VIP is used by memory controller and PHY IP design teams for verification sign off using run time and random JEDEC, and vendor part selection, protocol, and timing checks, and functional coverage. The early adoption and collaboration with leading memory vendors, SoC market makers, and industry leading IP teams certify the quality of Synopsys Memory VIP.
