Industry-Standard Design and Verification IP Reduces Design Risk and Lowers CostPALO ALTO, Calif. -- Nov. 6, 2007
-- Denali Software, Inc., a world-leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) software and intellectual property (IP), today announced that NetEffect, the leader in high performance, low power Ethernet connectivity solutions, has standardized on Denali Databahn(TM) PCI Express (PCIe) design cores and PureSpec(TM) verification IP, which support the latest PCIe 2.0 and I/O virtualization (IOV) specifications from the PCI-SIG, for use in developing their next-generation accelerated multi-gigabit Ethernet adapters. NetEffect architects and engineers use Denali's Databahn IP cores and PureSpec verification IP products to accelerate the design and verification of these systems, and speed overall deployment of PCI Express IOV technology.
"NetEffect was pleased with Denali's PureSpec PCIe VIP solutions for PCIe 1.1 and has expanded our relationship by embracing Denali's PCIe 2.0 design IP and verification IP solutions," said Terry Hulett, vice president of Engineering at NetEffect. "Denali's PCIe core and PureSpec verification IP are integral enablers in meeting the PCIe Gen 2.0 specifications. Today's demanding data center networks address their increasing traffic needs by incorporating our latest accelerated 1Gb and 10Gb Ethernet products. Denali's reputation and track record speaks volumes for creating and delivering high-quality, complete IP solutions for the latest process technologies."
IOV is a key technology that enables systems to simultaneously share PCI Express (PCIe) resources within multi-CPU systems, or across multiple operating systems. Large data centers and large storage environments use IOV technology to increase performance and reduce overall power and system costs.
"Our industry-leading PCI Express IO virtualization technology and verification IP will enable NetEffect to achieve their high throughput and feature requirements," states David Lin, vice president of product marketing for Denali. "Our customers, like NetEffect, can depend on our high-quality, interoperable design and verification IP solutions and excellent customer support to meet their product development timeframes and achieve a competitive advantage."
Denali's Databahn PCIe cores and PureSpec verification IP software for PCI Express provide full support of the Address Translation Service specification, Single-Root I/OV, including physical and virtual function (VF) configuration spaces, VF Alternate Routing-ID, and Functional Level Reset (FLR) capabilities.
