Open Core Protocol International Partnership (OCP-IP) said that the OCP interface has been added to Mentor Graphics Corp.'s CheckerWare library of verification intellectual property (IP).

CheckerWare, a library of more than 100 assertion checkers and protocol monitors, now supports OCP-IP's newest standard, OCP v2.1. Released in March, OCP v2.1 includes profiles for the most commonly coupled OCP features and an advanced tagging scheme for enhancements in out-of-order processing.

In a statement released by OCP-IP, Ian Mackintosh, president of OCP-IP, said OCP is supported by many independent companies like Mentor. "This is a testament to the tremendous adoption we have seen throughout the industry," Mackintosh said.

Steve White, general manager of Mentor Graphics' 0-In Functional Verification business unit, said OCP is a leading interconnect for Mentor customers designing complex system-on-chips (SoCs). "The addition of the CheckerWare OCP monitor enables these customers to quickly adopt the advanced methodologies needed to reach verification closure," he said.

OCP-IP, which has more than 100 member companies throughout the world, oversees the standard for intellectual property core interfaces, or sockets, used to provide plug-and-play capabilities in cores.
