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).
