Mobiveil provides Design IP and Avery Design provides Verification IP for the latest PCIe 5.0 specification
MILPITAS, Calif. -- June 05, 2018 -- Mobiveil, Inc. today announced that it is partnering with Avery Design Systems to deliver a complete PCIe 5.0 IP solution for SoC designers needing a fully verified and compliant PCIe 5.0 interface solution for their designs. Mobiveil will provide root complex, endpoint, and switch configurations of controller IP with SR·IOV and ARI Support. Avery Design Systems will provide its comprehensive PCI-Xactor Verification IP solution portfolio.
About PCIe 5.0 Specification
PCIe 5.0 technology is the next generation in the Peripheral Component Interconnect Express standard defined by the PCI-SIG (PCI Special Interest Group). Its 32GT/s (Giga transfers per second) bandwidth will set the standard for speed targeting high performance applications such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, gaming, visual computing, storage and networking. The specification is slated for completion in 2019. PCIe 5.0 interface technology is expected to enable NVMe SSDs for enterprise and data centers to leverage the scalability of PCIe architecture both in higher bandwidth and lower latency
"Verification is often cited as demanding a large proportion of effort for any new design," said Chris Browy, SVP of WW Sales & Marketing at Avery. Our PCIe VIP implements a complete set of root complex, endpoint, switch, and SR-IOV models, protocol checkers, and compliance test suites utilizing a truly flexible and open architecture based on a 100 percent native System Verilog and UVM implementation to ensure an SoC designers PCIe 5.0 interface meets specification."
“By this collaboration between PCIe controller Design IP and Verification IP providers, SoC designers can have a total plug and play solution for adding PCIe 5.0 interface to their SoC designs, thus significantly reducing their time to market,” said Ravi Thummarukudy, Mobiveil CEO. Leveraging the intellectual property provided by these companies with specification compliant IP, designers can be assured of first-time success for the PCIe 5.0 interface in their designs.”
