Cadence Demonstrates PCI Express 3.0 Controller IP in Customer Silicon

Comments(0)Filed under: Design IP, controller IP, PCI Express 3.0, Gen3, PCI, PCI-SIG, PIPE

At the June 2011 PCI-SIG Developer's Conference, Cadence demonstrated Cadence Design IP for PCI Express 3.0 controller IP implemented as a high-performance, dual-mode, 128-bit data-path, x8 PCI Express 3.0 controller configuration in a customer's ASIC. The Cadence PCI Express 3.0 controller in the ASIC reference card was attached to a LeCroy Summit T3-16 analyzer and Summit Z3-16 exerciser platform to demonstrate the Cadence PCI Express 3.0 core with traffic running at 8 GT/s per lane.

The Cadence PCI Express 3.0 design IP complies with v1.0 of the PCI Express 3.0 standard and v0.9 of the Intel PIPE 3.0 specification.The PCI Express Gen3 IP successfully implemented in silicon advanced capabilities like Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV), as well as the latest engineering change notices (ECNs) including ID-based Ordering, Re-Sizeable BARs, Atomic Operations, Transaction Processing Hints, Optimized Buffer Flush/Fill, Latency Tolerance Reporting and Dynamic Power Allocation. The Cadence PCI Express 3.0 IP has already been implemented in the recently announced PMC-Sierra 6Gb/s SAS Tachyon protocol controller.

To learn more about the Cadence Design IP for PCI Express Gen3 IP, please come back next week to see the PCI Express Gen3 IP video of the demonstration.
