Magillem SA (Paris, France) is promoting IP Reuse and interoperability through IEEE 1685 with the introduction of the IP-XACT Checker Suite software and Compliance Lab services.
Magillem Checker Suite is a compliance suite which enables IP providers, integrators and flow engineers to assess their compliance to IP-XACT and detect any non standard information early in the design flow. In addition to standard syntax and semantic rules, the suite delivers further DRC and integration checks to verify the correctness of a platform or IP.
Magillem Checker Suite features:
. Check all syntax and semantic checks defined in the standard
. Support IP-XACT 1.4, 1.5 and IEEE P1685 versions
. Custom check support
. Configurable check severity
. Checker reports in several formats
Magillem Checker Suite advantages:
. Non intrusive, scalable and automatic process
. GUI and command line execution can be performed
. All syntax and semantic checks defined by the SPIRIT consortium are checked
. It performs additional DRC and IP packaging checks
. It supports all IP-XACT formats
. Checker report generation (text, html, rtf, pdf)
. Configurable severity level for each check
. Direct link to the error/warning/info location in Magillem IP-XACT editor for easier debugging
. Additional custom checks can be implemented for userspecific controls (Java, TCL supported) and added to the checker suite execution
The IP-XACT Compliance Lab
establishes a compliance assessment process to ensure conformity to IEEE 1685 of IP blocks, designs and flows, interoperability of EDA tools.
The Compliance Lab audits existing industrial flows and proposes a work plan to adapt them to IEEE 1685, validates and verifies the full compatibility of tools interfaces into a flow test bench, tests the IP deliverables against a benchmark for conformity using its IEEE 1685 Checkers Suite Software and checks IP integration properties onto a test system.
Magillem's Lab can help companies to assess their IEEE1685 compliance:
• Semiconductor manufacturers:
conformity of the database and the design flow
• EDA vendors:
conformity of the tools interfaces with IEEE1685
• IP Providers:
conformity of the IP metadata description and configuration nutshell
