PLDA's PCI Express 3.0 IP with AXI passes the PCI-SIG rigorous testing process, ensuring ease-of-integration and first-pass silicon success for its global customer base.
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- January 14, 2014 -- PLDA, the industry leader in PCI Express® and interface IP solutions today announced that its XpressRICH3-AXI™ PCI Express® (PCIe®) 3.0 solution with AMBA AXI support, passed all Gold and Interoperability tests performed by the PCI-SIG® committee during its most recent workshop in December 2013. The testing was conducted using the PLDA XpressRICH3-AXI IP, running in an add-in card configuration on Xilinx® KC705 board, based on a Xilinx Kintex®-7 FPGA.
“Successful completion of the PCI-SIG compliance testing is a critical step in validating PLDA’s XpressRICH3-AXI PCIe 3.0 IP solution. Combined with our extensive history of groundbreaking PCIe development and a track record of over 5,800 PCI Express designs in silicon, this certification provides our global customer base with a further indication of the quality and ease-of-integration they have come to expect from our IP products.” said Stephane Hauradou, CTO of PLDA.
PCI-SIG is the consortium that owns and manages PCI specifications as open industry standards. Its compliance workshops offer members the opportunity to test and validate their products before they enter the field. Testing is completed against PCI-SIG maintained systems, as well as other leading manufacturers of PCI products. The rigorous testing process includes interoperability testing on a range of PC hardware products, transaction layer and data link testing, physical layer testing and configuration testing.
“We’re pleased PLDA passed PCIe 3.0 compliance testing with its XpressRICH3-AXI PCIe 3.0 IP product, which provides assistance to ASIC and FPGA designers by minimizing risk and lowering the cost of developing PCIe 3.0 designs,” said Al Yanes, PCI-SIG President and Chairman. “PLDA’s PCIe 3.0 compliant products facilitate protocol adherence and interoperability which contributes to the continued success of the PCI Express standard.”
