Product Overview: Questa VIP for NVMe

NVMe host models enumerates multiple NVMe controllers and namespaces, randomly configures NVMe DUT, generates all system memory data structures including PRP/SGL automatically using random constraints, supports interrupt setup and service routine. Additional features include:

  • Supports host adapter interface allowing NVMe host driver to work with any PCIe and AMBA IP/VIP or custom host bus protocol
  • NVMe transaction classes and sequences support robust random constraints
  • NVMe device model emulates SSD including automatic command completion and sparse memory block storage
  • Inject errors at all layers through callbacks
  • Comprehensive assertions track NVMe compliance coverage
  • Intelligent built-in scoreboard auto verifies all NVM read command data automatically
  • Functional coverage tracks range of commands, payloads, errors, SGL/PRP shapes
  • Comprehensive directed and constrained random compliance test suite for NVMe devices achieves high protocol coverage
  • Tracker log monitors all levels and improves debug
