Siemens Launches Verification IP Platform for brand new CXL 3.0 Protocol

Siemens Digital Industries Software’s simulator-independent Questa Verification IP solution now props up new Compute Express Link (CXL) 3.0 protocol for high-performance computing (HPC) applications. CXL 3.0 is dependant on the Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) networking protocol, which facilitates the rapid change in data between the world's highest performance cloud computing servers as well as vast amounts of smart connected devices around the world.

Available immediately, Siemens' Questa Verification IP solution for CXL 3.0 integrates seamlessly into all advanced verification environments on any simulator. For customers looking to incorporate the new CXL 3.0 protocol into their next-generation designs, the solution helps customers optimize productivity and adaptability for the verification of block-level, subsystem, and system-on-a-chip (SoC) designs, which could speed time-to-market.

“By providing early support for the new CXL 3.0 protocol, Siemens might help customers differentiate and win in highly competitive HPC markets around the world,” said Mark Olen, product management director, IC Verification Solutions, Siemens Digital Industries Software. “Available now for early adopters of the CXL 3.0 protocol, our new Questa Verification IP solution supplies a proven, robust and comprehensive verification platform that allows our customers to validate their next-generation designs with speed and confidence.”

Engineered to expedite verification closure and expose complex design issues, Siemens’ Questa Verification IP solution supports detailed functional verification across all layers from the CXL 3.0 specification. This latest offering from Siemens includes ready-to-use verification components and exhaustive stimuli that will help increase productivity and accelerate verification signoff. In addition, the answer can eliminate design biases found in many competing solutions.
