San Jose, Calif., March 28, 2006
—PLDApplications (PLDA) today announced the licensing of its x8 250 MHz PCIe® IP to Tehuti Networks.
"We needed a concrete PCI Express solution," explains Haim Bar-David, Chief Technical Officer of Tehuti Networks. "PLDA offered a functional demonstration of a x8 solution that will serve all of our silicon needs, from FPGA to ASIC". PLDA will showcase the same demonstration at the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) in San Jose, CA, the 4-6 of April (booth 3132).
PLDA's market-proven Xpress Rich IP offers a high-performance architecture in a highly configurable RTL-level function and supports a variety of silicon technologies, such as FPGAs and 65 nm ASIC. Suitable for endpoint designs, the core offers a 64-bit data path at 2.5 Gbps per lane (up to two virtual channels) and is a secure and proven solution verified with multiple validation IP vendors and interoperable with all of the main PHY IP vendors.
Tehuti Networks offers system-on-a chip (SOCs) solutions for removing server I/O bottlenecks in 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks. To help manage the increased load, Tehuti has adopted PCI Express; a shift that, combined with their network accelerating IP, permits them to offer solutions that improve the performance of their clients' applications by up to 150%.
"The configurable nature of PLDA's IP was a good fit for Tehuti Networks’ incremental development approach," continues Mr. Bar-David. "We started prototyping with a x4 core and a single 10 Gbps Ethernet link. By reconfiguring the same IP, we quickly evolved into a x8 design with two 10 Gbps Ethernet links."
Since the earliest introduction of the PCI Express protocol, PLDA has consistently listed products on the PCI-SIG integrator list. Today, PLDA has sold over 100 PCI Express licenses and offers two families of PCI Express IP that support x1, x4, and x8 lanes for root port, endpoint, bridge, and switch configurations. The best-selling IP for PCI-X / PCI (PLDA was ranked #1 PCI vendor by Gartner Dataquest, 2005) includes a client list of over 1,000 satisfied customers worldwide. Learn More
