QuickPCIe PCI Express(R) interface IP with enhanced DMA delivers unprecedented performance, flexibility and ease of integration for PCI Express based FPGA designs
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Feb 17, 2012 -- PLDA, the industry leader in PCI Express(R), USB 3.0, and high speed interface IP, today announced QuickPCIe - the industry's most advanced PCI Express interface IP solution featuring a high performance configurable DMA. QuickPCIe is a revolutionary breakthrough in IP integration, standardizing on the AMBA(R) AXI open interconnect protocol to provide a unified and scalable interface to user logic.
The AMBA AXI4 protocol is the latest generation and highest performance on-chip interconnect open standard for the connection of functional blocks in a System-on-Chip (SoC).The integration of a scalable PCI Express interface IP and a high-performance AXI4 based DMA engine enables ease of development of complex FPGA designs with stringent performance requirements.
About the QuickPCIe IP:
- Designed for Endpoint and Root Port applications, QuickPCIe is compliant to the PCI Express(R) Specification revision 3.0 and to the AMBA(R) AXI4 Specification v2.0.
- QuickPCIe supports PCI Express(R) x1, x2, x4, x8 and x16 interfaces at Gen1, Gen2 and Gen3 speeds (8.0 GT/s).
- QuickPCIe built-in multi-channel DMA supports packet-based and block based data transfers through multiple AXI4 interfaces.
- QuickPCIe supports Xilinx and Altera PCI Express Hard IP and PLDA PCI Express(R) Soft IP.
According to Stephane Hauradou, PLDA's CTO, "QuickPCIe is a real advantage to our customers who require a PCI Express interface that is both robust and easy to implement. The combination of a hard or soft PCI Express IP with advanced DMA capability and a standardized user interface significantly accelerates time to market and encourages IP reuse."
