NextIO Adopts Denali's Verification IP for New PCI Express Expansion and I/O Virtualization Module for Blade Systems

Verification Engineers Take Advantage of Easy-to-Use VIP For Compliance and Interoperability to PCI Express 2.0 Multi-Root I/O Virtualization Standard and Accelerate Market Opportunities

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Denali Software, Inc., a world-leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) software and intellectual property (IP), today announced that NextIO, the premier provider of next-generation I/O solutions, has successfully utilized PureSpec(TM) verification IP (VIP) to verify compliance with the latest PCI Express(PCIe) 2.0 Multi-Root I/O Virtualization (IOV)protocol specifications and validate interoperability on their new generation N1400-PCM High-Speed Switch Module. NextIO's verification engineers chose Denali PureSpec VIP for its high-quality and seamless integration into their design and verification environment, providing a reliable and comprehensive framework for accelerating design cycle times.

"Traditional blade server designs limit users to only one additional I/O technology other than Ethernet on the motherboard and forces users to remove power from their server blades to update their I/O technology. NextIO's N1400-PCM High-Speed Switch Module extends PCIe signaling outside of the BladeCenter chassis and provides users exponential I/O connectivity choices to one or more blade servers and to reassign or change I/O technologies without powering down blades," states Rich Warwick, vice president of Engineering and Operations at NextIO. "NextIO is the industry pioneer and leader in PCIe I/O Virtualization, and Denali is the leader in PCIe base and IOV compliance verification tools. This made the selection of Denali an obvious choice when building the world's first Spec-Compliant Multi-Root I/O Virtualization switch. We have reaped significant benefits from Denali's high-quality models and their reliable verification IP as it has helped us reduce development risk, cost and minimized our overall time-to-market."

NextIO's N1400-PCM High-Speed Switch Modules brings best-in-class PCIe connectivity to the IBM(R) BladeCenter(R) and provides a flexible and manageable expansion solution for these platforms. NextIO's switch technology allows all blade servers to extend their PCIe signals to an external I/O expansion unit.

"Denali understands the challenges facing design teams, including reaching time-to-market timelines while minimizing the impact on engineering resources," states Sanjiv Kumar, director of Verification Products at Denali Software. "Our customers, such as NextIO, confidently use our high-quality verification IP so that their designs can meet PCIe MR-IOV compliance and significantly shorten the verification time required to bring their product to market."

About Denali's Verification IP for PCI Express

Denali's PureSpec verification IP software for PCIe is the most widely used solution for verifying functionality, compliance and interoperability of PCIe designs at the pre-silicon stage of chip or IP core development. PureSpec supports the latest PCI-SIG specifications for Address Translation Service, Single-Root and Multi-Root I/OV, including configuration spaces (physical function, virtual function and base function), Alternative Routing-ID interpretation, Functional Level Reset (FLR), and PCI Manager (PCIM) capabilities.
