On March 14th, Cadence announced the release of the industry’s first USB4-supporting Verification IP! The Cadence VIP for USB4 allows engineers to design and create cutting-edge SoC designs compliant with the current standards that are completely functionally verified and require less time.
“Support from [USB Implementers Forum] members like Cadence helps reduce the barriers to adoption of new USB protocols and enables innovative products from new industries to enter the market,” says Jeff Ravencraft, USB-IF President and COO.
Earlier in March, the USB Promoter Group announced plans to release the USB4 spec, which is based on Intel’s Thunderbolt protocol. USB4 can up to double total available data throughput to an incredible 40Gbps. Cadence’s VIP for USB4 comes after over a year of close collaboration with early USB4 adopters, and it comes with Cadence’s signature TripleCheck technology, giving users a verification plan and a comprehensive test suite that they can use to easily ensure compliance with this new USB4 spec.
“Our team has successfully utilized the Cadence VIP for multiple standards, including for the DisplayPort standard and previous versions of the USB specification,” says Anant Singh, VP of Engineering at Kandou Bus.
The Cadence VIP for USB4 is a part of the Cadence Verification Suite—slotting into a comprehensive system of engines, verification tools and technologies, and solutions that you can use to suit any verification need. If you want to be ahead of the game, check out the Cadence VIP for USB4 today.
