for Mobile Devices


Now, you can take advantage of leading technology developed for the wired world in your mobile platforms. Cadence has unveiled new IP and verification IP (VIP) products that support the newly announced Mobile PCI Express® (M-PCIe™) specification. The first to be available commercially, these new products will equip you to get to market quickly with your next-generation PCIe-based systems-on-chip (SoCs) targeting smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices.

The new M-PCIe IP, tapping into the family of Cadence® controllers and PHYs used across dozens of advanced PCIe designs, includes a PCIe controller with an M-PHY® interface capable of supporting the High Speed Gear 3 specification.

The new Mobile PCIe VIP, building on the proven Cadence Verification IP for PCI Express and the Cadence Verification IP for MIPI® M-PHY, combines the upper layers of the PCIe Gen 3 protocol with the M-PHY physical layer. You’ll be able to thoroughly verify your root complex and endpoint designs, while saving time developing your mobile SoC products using the off-the-shelf VIP.
