800 Gbps VIP Co-simulation Platform by Avery

Avery Design Systems recently announced the release of its fully tested Verification IP (VIP) for 800 Gbps Ethernet, which can now be utilised to perform virtual network co-simulation for a full layer Ethernet 2-7 network stack. The combination of the virtual co-simulation/co-emulation system and a verification IP helps enable the operation of full hardware/software system verification on pre-silicon SoC RTL and software integrations. This further enables the system designers to be able to perform system-level validation of an SoC design’s Ethernet and TCP/IP network interfaces via real network traffic workloads of communication, datacentre, and storage network protocols running on either host OS or virtual machine technology with a company claimed speed of 800 Gbps.

“Leveraging the bandwidth and performance of Ethernet has become increasingly important in a range of data transfer intensive applications and time-to-market is a major concern for product developers. Performing full hardware/software, system-level verification of DPUs, SmartNICs, switches, and routers can be accelerated by weeks to months using virtual network co-simulation. With this solution, any host OS or guest OS (VM) user space program or Linux network utility can communicate with SoC RTL/FW via Avery’s SystemVerilog MAC/PHY virtual NIC VIP,” said Chris Browy, vice president of sales and marketing at Avery.

One of the important applications for utilising Ethernet VIP is NVMe-over-TCP which is applied to TCP application interfaces in pure software-exclusive host driver or optimised hardware offload to implement disaggregated, composable block storage systems for a standard IP and Ethernet network. Additionally, in large, distributed compute server architectures, designers can incorporate NVMe-MI in-band usage models over IP control path networks for centralised discovery and control systems.

The device can be considered as a simple Ethernet device, which rather than receiving packs from a physical media (Ethernet NIC), receives them from the Ethernet MAC/PHY RX VIP which hands them over to the OS network stack. The Ethernet MAC/PHY VIP platform is further connected to the SoC design’s interfaces that are both parts of the SystemVerilog simulation testbench.
