Configurable PCI Express controller IP certification reduces design risk, enables interoperability with other PCI Express® products
Milpitas, Calif., March 4, 2014. -- Mobiveil, Inc., a fast growing supplier of silicon intellectual property (SIP), platforms and IP-enabled design services today announced that its GPEX™PCI Express® (PCIe®) 3.0 endpoint controller passed PCI-SIG® Gold and Interoperability testing. To achieve compliance, the IP must pass protocol, electrical and interoperability testing for PCIe Gen3 8GT/s. Mobiveil’s GPEX has a highly flexible and configurable IP design targeted for end-points or root complex type devices, as well as switches and bridge implementations. The controller IP architecture is tailored to optimize link utilization, latency, reliability, power consumption and reduce the silicon footprint.
“Companies such as Mobiveil that participate in PCIe compliance testing help ensure the continued adoption of the architecture,” said Al Yanes, PCI-SIG Chairman and President. “This delivers PCI-SIG technology’s increased I/O performance and interoperability to the next generation of high-speed peripheral devices across the globe.”
“We are committed to provide the leading design IP solutions for PCIe Gen3,” said Ravi Thummarukudy, CEO of Mobiveil, Inc. “Our solution, which is verified for functionality, compliance and interoperability against industry-leading PCI Express verification IPs, enables our customers to minimize design risk and reduce time-to-market for high-performance PCI Express based products. Emergence of NVM Express™ as a Flash Storage industry standard will further utilize the PCI Express Gen3 architecture and performance in new applications. With this in mind, we have tightly integrated our PCI Express IP (GPEX™) with our industry leading NVM Express™ IP (UNEX™)”for such storage applications”
The controller's simple, configurable and layered architecture is independent of application logic, PHY designs, implementation tools and most importantly, the target technology itself. Mobiveil’s solution allows the licensees to easily migrate among standard cell technologies and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) , and the controller's flexible backend interface can be integrated into wide range of applications.
Mobiveil’s IP team has more than twelve years of experience in successful IP development starting with Hypertransport, early versions of PCI Express, Serial RapidIO and Ethernet. The interface IPs designed by the team are integrated in hundreds of SOC designs and shipped in millions of devices.
Mobiveil’s GPEX™ PCIe Gen3 Controller IP for end-point, root-complex and switch configurations are now available. The design can be implemented in process technologies 65nm, 40nm, 28nm and 16nm. For more information on Mobiveil’s GPEX IP, please visit http://www.mobiveil.com/hip.html
