Increasingly complex digital interfaces and protocols often require engineers to go beyond functional compliance checks and as far as validating against full parametric, functional, voltage, and timing characteristics. Researching the protocol standards, designing appropriate measurement IP, developing an appropriate user interface, and reporting results require a lot of effort. As a result, many in-house protocol validation tools often end up being slow, expensive, and difficult to maintain.
