PLDA ASIC IP Cores Optimized and Ready for PCIe 4.0 Challenges

PCI Express® 4.0 ASIC IP from PLDA, already proven in PCIe 3.0, offers improvements in performance with backwards compatibility and PHY interoperability

SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 29, 2014 — PLDA, the company that designs and sells intellectual property (IP) cores and prototyping tools for ASICs and FPGAs, has optimized its ASIC intellectual property (IP) cores for the next generation of the ubiquitous and general purpose PCI Express® I/O specification, 4.0. PLDA’s proven 3.0 architecture enables easy migration to PCIe 4.0, with no interface changes necessary, and preserves existing behavior for seamless integration.

PLDA has over 18 years of experience in the design of IP cores for ASIC design, specializing in high-speed interface protocols and technologies, with a specific focus on PCIe. Over 5,700 customers have used PLDA cores for several hundred ASIC tapeouts. PLDA ASIC IP products for 4.0 offer:

  • Interconnect performance bandwidth double that of the PCIe 3.0 specification, achieving 16 GT/s.
  • Flexibility of the supported PIPE Configurations for PCIe 4.0.
  • Preservation of compatibility with software and mechanical interfaces.
  • Compatibility with prior generations of PCIe technology and support for proven features of 3.0.
  • Multi-PHY compliance.

The Internet of things (IoT) has increased the need for fast and efficient management of “big data.” Devices need more throughput and lower power usage. Storage technology needs improved performance – in terms of bandwidth rather than capacity. PLDA’s ASIC IP products allow designers to address these challenges now.

“The market is ready to take on the challenges of PCIe 4.0,” said Stephane Hauradou, CTO of PLDA. “Now is the time for designers to begin working on the architecture of PCIe 4.0 projects. Our team and our cores – offering the performance, reliability and flexibility customers have come to rely on – are ready to help customers meet those challenges now.”
