Deliverables

  • Verilog or VHDL netlist
  • Source code (optional)
  • Testbench with documentation for checking the functionality of any configuration of the Flip80251 Hurricane at any representation level (RTL down to silicon).

Robustness is ensured

For more than 15 years, Dolphin Integration has built a testsuite for checking the functionality of any configuration of the Flip8051 Cyclone at any representation level (RTL down to silicon).The testbenches have evolved a lot thanks to users feedback.
The testbench is delivered with its documentation to our microcontroller core users so that they can apply it on their own project and ensure functionality.
