JESD204 Verification IP


Comcores has a solid track record of delivering JESD204B and JESD204C solutions, to support the IPs we offer the verification IP for JESD204, which supports both the JESD204B and JESD204C version. Furthermore, it will support JESD204D (once the standard is published). The JESD204 Verification IP provides an advanced and efficient solution for verifying and debugging these standards in a UVM simulation environment.

The verification IP helps reduce time to test, accelerate verification process and ensures a high quality for the end-product. Comcores JESD204 VIP is prepared for seamless functionality on all major simulators with UVM support.

What is interlaken?

Morten Kofoed Esbjørn - Oct 31, 2022. Interlaken provides a standardized serial interface that is agnostic of underlying SerDes implementations. It ensures reliable transfer of data over a configurable number of physical connections and can be configured to support multiple lane configurations. The Interlaken protocol provides mechanisms to ensure the integrity of data transfer as well as manage data flows to ensure that the chip is not overloaded. These mechanisms effectively...

Unlock your chips full data throughput potential with Interlaken

Piotr Koziuk - Sep 12, 2022. Way back in the early 2000's when XAUI was falling short on link flexibility a search for an alternative chip-to-chip data transfer interface with SPI like features, lead Cisco Systems and Cortina System to put forward the proposal for the Interlaken standard. The new standard married the best of XAUI’s serialized data and SPI’s flow control capabilities. To this day the continuous growth in data consumption is driving demand for higher speeds, but...
