Avery Gen-Z VIP provides a comprehensive verification solution featuring an advanced UVM environment that incorporates constrained random traffic generation, robust packet, link, and physical layer controls and error injection, protocol checks and coverage, functional coverage, protocol analyzer-like features for debugging, and performance analysis metrics. With the advanced capabilities of Avery VIP, engineers can work more efficiently, develop more complex tests, and work on more complex topologies, such as multi-path, multi-link solutions. Avery compliance testsuites offer effective corethrough-chip-level tests, including those used in compliance workshops as well as extended tests developed by Avery to cover the specification features
