In the Imago Dialogue both parties agree to a basic ground rule: to talk one person at-a-time.This gives you a person who is speaking, we say “sending”, and another who is listening, or “receiving”.The best way we have come to distinguish the difference between a thought and a feeling, is that a feeling can generally be described in one or two words: e.g., happy, excited, safe, cared for, hurt, frustrated, scared.Try to include some “feeling” words if you can, in this step.This is done by configuring one of the IP’s as the transmitter and the other as a receiver and vice versa.It is one of the most widely used approaches nowadays as each SOC has two or more instances for most of the communication IPs.If the Sender has already said how they feel, then the Receiver can simply reflect this back once more.If, however, the Receiver can think of an additional way their partner might be feeling, this is where they can add that.
It thus becomes important to ensure robustness of these IPs over various conditions of temperature, pressure, voltage etc.
The common methods used for validating different communication IPs on a SOC to cover maximum functionality are as follows: 2-1- Loopback between IPs on the same SOC In this method, communication IPs such as SPI, UART, CAN, LIN etc.
are validated by connecting two or more instances of identical IPs available on the SOC in loopback.
The Receiver now gets their turn to respond with whatever came up for them while the first partner was sending and the Sender shifts into being the new Receiver who does the mirroring, etc.
