Avery Design Systems Announces NVMe 1.3 and NVMe-MI Verification IP Updates

Tewksbury, MA, 3 August 2017 - Avery Design Systems Inc., an innovator in functional verification productivity solutions, today announced availability of updates to its NVMe VIP supporting NVMe 1.3 and support for new NVMe-Management Interface (NVMe-MI) over PCIe 4.0 or SMBus 3.0.

The NVMe VIP now supports the NVMe 1.3 standard including enhancements to models, protocol checking, and compliance testsuites.

NVMe 1.3 mandatory features and revisions

  • Identify Namespace return list of Namespace Identifiers
  • Get Log Page command change for Retain Asynchronous Event functionality
  • Globally Unique Updates
  • SGL Dword Simplification
  • Firmware Update Granularity
  • Namespace Optimal IO Boundary
  • Non-Operational Power State Permissive Mode
  • Data Transfer Direction for opcodes shall be valid
  • Reservations Changes
  • Operation Denied status code
  • Deallocated Value for Logical Block Data 

NVMe 1.3 optional new features

  • Device Self-Test
  • Sanitize
  • Directives
  • Boot Partitions
  • Telemetry
  • Virtualization Enhancements
  • NVMe-MI Management Enhancements
  • Host Controlled Thermal Management
  • Timestamp
  • Emulated Controller Performance Enhancement 

The NVMe host driver now supports the NVMe Management Interface (NVMe-MI) to communicate out-of-band with an NVMe NVM Subsystem Management Endpoint via PCI Express or SMBus/I2C over a simplified MCTP protocol.  NVMe-MI supports a native PCIe in-line flow or SMBus adapter for out-of-bound communication via a SMBus 3.0 host model.

  • Discover devices that are present and learn capabilities of each device
  • Store data about the host environment enabling a Management Controller to query the data later
  • Health and temperature monitoring
  • Multiple Command Slots to prevent a long latency command from blocking monitoring operations
  • Processor and operating system agnostic
  • A standard format for VPD and defined mechanisms to read/write VPD contents
  • Preserves data at rest security 

“Avery continues to demonstrate leadership in NVMe and PCIe VIP with support for the latest NVMe features,” said Chris Browy, vice president of sales/marketing at Avery. “Our customers can develop new products more confidently and quickly knowing a comprehensive SystemVerilog/UVM NVMe verification environment is available for the latest in NVMe developments targeting enterprise, client, and cloud.”
