1.3.1. Simulation Environment
Intel® performs the following tests on the 50GbE core in the simulation environment using internal and third-party standard bus functional models (BFM):
- Constrained random tests that cover randomized frame size and contents.
- Assertion based tests to confirm proper behavior of the IP core with respect to the specification.
- Extensive coverage of our runtime configuration space and proper behavior in all possible modes of operation.
