Advanced microcontroller bus architecture (AMBA) protocol family provides a metric-driven verification of protocol compliance, enabling the comprehensive testing of interface intellectual property (IP) blocks and system-on-chip (SoC) design. The AMBA advanced extensible interface 4 (AXI4) update to AMBA AXI3 includes: the support for burst lengths up to 256 beats. It is updated write response requirements and removal of locked transactions. Verification has become the dominant cost in the
