1.3. IP Core Verification
Before releasing a version of the 100G Interlaken IP core, Intel® runs comprehensive regression tests in the current version of the Quartus® Prime software. These tests use standalone methods. These files are tested in simulation and hardware to confirm functionality. Intel® tests and verifies the 100G Interlaken IP core in hardware for different platforms and environments.
Constrained random techniques generate appropriate stimulus for the functional verification of the IP core. Functional coverage metrics measure the quality of the random stimulus, and ensure that all important features are verified.
