San Jose, Calif -- November 30, 2005
-- Genesys Logic, Inc. (GLI) the high speed I/O communications specialist, today announced full production and availability of its PCI Express GigaCourier™ GL9714 integrated circuit (IC). The device provides PCB developers, for the first time, with an access speed of 10Gbps for various configurations of PIPE interfaces, including 250MHz/8-bit SDR and 125MHz/8-bit DDR PIPE.
"The impact is profound." said Jerry Chen, Director of Marketing at Genesys Logic America. "For the first time the industry now has a 100% PCIe compliant 4-lane 10Gb/s PHY device. The GL9714 is an ideal solution for bandwidth-hungry FPGA applications, and designers no longer have compatibility issues."
GL9714 is supported by industry leaders worldwide. Zuken, a pioneer solutions company in Japan, successfully conducted the inter-operability tests between its advanced PCI Express x4 core logic and GL9714 earlier this year. The intended application was able to fully utilize GL9714's 10Gbps connection bandwidth to the host PC.
DDR PIPE design greatly enhances the usability of 4-lane PIPE PHY in FPGA designs. Running at 125MHz DDR for the 8-bit per lane interface, the design of GL9714 eases off the 250MHz high speed concern for most FPGA applications.
GL9714 is available immediately in LFBGA233 package format. Power consumption is in the 700mW range, with all 4 lanes running. For sales information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
GL9714 and the formerly announced GL9711 1-lane version, fully comply with both the PCI Express™ Base Specification Revision 1.0a and the PHY Interface for the PCI Express (PIPE) Architecture version 1.0 from Intel. Concatenation of GL9714 works well for 8/16/32 lanes configuration to meet the demand of various bandwidth requirements for networking, graphics, storage, and other high-speed applications.
