San Jose, CA, April 15, 2008:
GDA Technologies, Inc, a Global Electronics Design services and IP provider, today announced the immediate availability and shipment of the PCI Express Single Root IO Virtualization controller (GPEX-SRIOV) IP, ideally suited for desktop, server, storage, and telecom applications. GPEX-SRIOV IP is a flexible and configurable design targeted for end-point, root complex, switch and bridge implementation for both Gen1 and Gen2 applications. The controller’s architecture is carefully crafted for optimal link utilization, latency, reliability, power consumption, and foot print.
"GPEX-SRIOV is another key milestone accomplishment in our continuing PCI Express roadmap. This reiterates our leadership and commitment to the PCI express and serial interconnect technologies,” said Ravi Thummarukudy, VP and General Manager of IC and IP division at GDA. "GDA’s exhaustive verification methodology and interoperability testing with leading PHY IP minimizes risk and reduces time to market for our customers, strengthening their efforts to design high performance SR-IOV based products."
GPEX-SRIOV is part of GDA's PCI Express (GPEX) family of PCI Express IP solutions that has been in production for over 4 years. The IP has the distinction of carrying the maximum number of entries on the PCI Express integrators list, demonstrating compliance with PCISIG testing and universal interoperability with Industry standard PCI Express solutions. The PCI Express SRIOV version is compatible with the earlier version of the GPEX IP, allowing smooth transition of existing designs to SRIOV. GDA also offers customization and integration design services for all the IP.
The GPEX-SRIOV flexible backend architecture allows for easy integration into wide range of applications. The IP is feature rich, highly flexible, scalable, configurable, and features a friendly design. It supports wide range of data widths (32, 64,128) and configurable lanes (x1, x2, x4, x8 and x16), and is independent of application logic, PHY designs, implementation tools, and target technology. The IP is genuinely an exhaustively verified solution which has been fully tested against design specific and protocol compliance checklist.
In fact, the GPEX-SRIOV IP is compliant with Single Root I/O Virtualization and Sharing Specification Revision 1.0, Address Translation Services Revision 1.0 and supports Alternative Routing-ID Interpretation (ARI) Specification. GPEX-SRIOV IP is available in Gen1 as well as Gen2 configurations.
GDA's comprehensive directed and random tests ensure very high coverage as well. The IP is verified with leading PCI Express verification IP’s, and the verification environment can be configured to run with all the major simulators. The reusable block level verification environment and the formal verification methodology enhance the quality of the verification process and add more confidence to the design verification. The GPEX-SRIOV IP leverages GDA’s years of experience in creating reusable IP such as Ethernet MAC (10/100/1G and 10G), Rapid IO (both serial and parallel), SPI4.2, and Hypertransport.About GDA Technologies:
