Advantages

   
  • Eliminates the ongoing task of (re)defining interface protocols, then verifying, documenting, supporting them.

  • OCP readily adapts to support new core capabilities.

  • Testbench portability simplifies reverification.

  • Limits test suite modifications for core enhancements.

  • Any bus structure can be interfaced to the OCP.

  • Delivers industry standard flexibility and reuse.

  • Symmetrical signaling enables direct point-to-point communication between two cores (without on-chip bus).
