Local Interconnect Network (LIN) is a single-wire, serial communication protocol based on the UART interface that is gaining popularity as a sub-bus standard in the automotive industry. LIN VIP are reusable components that provide ready made verification environment. Compatible with Local Interconnect Network (LIN) specifications version 2.2A and supports all the frame types such as Unconditional, Event-triggered, Sporadic, Diagnostic and Reserved frames.

LIN 2.2A VIP includes an extensive test suite covering most of the possible scenarios. It can perform all protocal tests and moreover it allows an easy generation of very high number of patterns and a set of specified patterns to stress the DUT.

LIN VIP is supported natively in SystemVerilog, VMM, RVM, AVM, OVM, UVM, Verilog, SystemC, VERA, Specman E and non-standard verification env
