THE RESULTING SET OF VERIFICATION IP (VIP) and IP core for CAN FD provide more complete integrated design and verification solutions for automotive sensors and micro-controllers. Device and ECU designers need proven, reliable IP cores to integrate these functions in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Additionally, test and verification requirements for conformance, interoperability, performance, and security can be greatly enhanced through the use of commercial verification IP models, protocol checking, and compliance test-suite options. In order to provide such solutions for CAN FD and other automotive networks, the three above-mentioned companies have agreed to cooperate.

“We are excited to work with Avery to help automotive engineers develop safer systems quicker through the industry’s first integrated CAN FD soft IP core and VIP package,” said Nikos Zervas, chief executive officer of Cast. Sourced from Fraunhofer IPMS, the CAN FD core is available today in synthesizable RTL for ASICs or FPGAs. A ready-to-run reference design board and other development aids are also available from Cast to further shorten the time-to-market for CAN FD based products. The Avery’s Classical CAN and FD VIP supports the latest ISO 11898-1 revision (2015). Models and compliance test-suites for all modes are supported. VIP is developed in native System Verilog UVM and includes traffic generation, protocol checking, and coverage.
