eInfochips unleashed the controller area network (CAN) 2.0 Verification IP (VIP) to enhance the reliability of automotive telemetry and control. The plug-and-play solution targets robust and standards compliant devices (FPGA, ASIC and SoC implementation) on automotive and industrial applications. Together with the reusable ISO/DIS 16845 compliance suite, the VIP aims to speed up test cycles by up to 80 per cent, while improving the test confidence, added the company.

CAN is the ISO-11898 bus standard designed to allow devices to communicate with each other without a host computer. CAN bus is a message-based protocol, designed specifically for automotive applications but now also used in other areas such as aerospace, maritime, industrial automation and medical equipment.

The eInfochips CAN 2.0 VIP is available on System Verilog for integration into custom verification environments, and also on leading verification methodologies: OVM, VMM and UVM. The VIP supports functional coverage for checkers to ensure the IP/RTL behaviour is continuously monitored. For faster debug cycles, eInfochips CAN 2.0 VIP has features such as Trancastion Tracker and Bandwidth Monitor.

The verification IP currently supports CAN 2.0 A, CAN 2.0 B, and CAN 2.0 AB. Support for CAN FD 1.0 and TTCAN is planned for Dec 2014.

eInfochips has developed 32 complex VIPs for top global EDA companies and end-customers. Their experience includes VIPs for the latest high-speed and low-power protocol standards, like MIPI, SERDES, USB 3.0, DDR3, HDMI and eMMC. Today, eInfochips has contributed to VIPs that are deployed by hundreds of customers to bring confidence to their ASIC, SOC and FPGA designs.
