New PCIe 2.0 Products, PCIe 3.0 IP Highlighted in Multiple Speaking Sessions July 9, 2009
-- Gennum Corporation (TSX: GND) continues to push performance limits for PCI Express (PCIe) with demonstrations next week at the PCI-SIG Developers Conference being held in San Jose July 15-16. Gennums Snowbush IP group will showcase the industry's first public demonstration of a PCIe 3.0 PHY, highlighting its unprecedented electrical performance, as well as demonstrations of PCIe 2.0 and SATA IP in a PCIe SATA bridge. Gennum will also demonstrate 3 gigabits (Gb/s) live video capture using Gennum's PCIe 2.0 solutions, underscoring the potential for PCIe in SDI video applications.
Technical experts from Gennum will also present at the two-day conference, an event designed to provide intensive training on all aspects of PCIe. What:
- PCIe HD Video Capture Demonstration
An HD camera captures live video to a graphics display. Gennum's GN4124 PCIe bridge allows for SDI video capture to the PCIe bus. The PCI Express bus is extended 15 meters from the host PC using Gennum's GN1406 PCIe extender solution allowing full rate PCIe 2.0 to the PCIe bus of the host PC. The streaming video will be displayed on the video monitor.
- PCIe 3.0 PHY IP Demonstration
Showcasing its programmable range, Gennum's Snowbush IP Group will showcase its newest IP, a PCIe 3.0 PHY. Demonstrating a transmit eye running at 8 Gigatransfers per second (Gt/s) with low jitter will transmit test pattern generator will transmit a PRBS (pseudo-random binary sequence) data pattern, the signal will be looped back off-chip via cables to the receiver, where it will be deserialized and checked for errors.
