- Netsys Software Pvt. Ltd.(nSys) and PLDApplications today announced a technology collaboration that will allow customers to quickly test PLDApplications PCI Express Cores functionality and helps ensure smooth integration of an IP core into a target design. The Verification Suites includes monitor, checkers and test suites that ensure correct IP integration.
The PCI Express architecture is a fast emerging as the serial interconnect technology of future. The technology is targeted at multiple market segments in the computing and communications industries, and supports chip-to-chip, board-to-board and adapter solutions.
“Our customers need sophisticated solution for the dual problems of performing comprehensive functional validation of an IP block and also providing capabilities to migrate to pre-silicon, SoC, system-level testing" said Arnaud Schleich, VP Sales & Marketing. "We found that nSys had a most comprehensive verification solution for the PCI Express technology. The availability of Test Suites in the PCI Express nVS will save our customers several man-months of efforts while the user friendly command set will help them write application specific test cases very easily.”
"PLDApplications wanted to ease the verification and IP delivery process," said Atul Bhatia, Director nSys. "By this technology collaboration, we offer PLDApplications and its FPGA as well as ASIC customers access to technology for thoroughly verifying IP prior to and after delivery." About nSys:
nSys is on a roadmap to become the leading provider of Verification IPs. nSys provides products/services to reduce time-to-market for its customers by addressing their verification needs for SoC development. nSys offers nVS(nSys Verification Suites) family of Verification IPs for development of ASIC/FPGA based upon I/O standards. By leveraging its vast experience in standards-based product development, the nSys team creates verification solutions that solve the most challenging functional verification problems in the world.

Formed in 1996 by seasoned semiconductor industry engineers and profitable since its inception, PLDApplications (PLDA) is a privately owned company focused on the development and sale of high-quality semiconductor intellectual property cores (SIP) for ASICs, structured-ASICs and FPGAs.
Unlike other IP companies who spread their resources and efforts thinly over many technologies without really mastering any, PLDA concentrates on high-speed busses cores: PCI Express, PCI, PCI-X, AMBA.
PLDA mission is to help designing faster and easier top-performance chips based on PCI busses and derivatives.
PLDA is also a total solution vendor that include IP core license, fully interoperable with other main vendors, prototyping boards, complete verification process, customization as well as full technical support provided directly from the IP designers.
Pioneering the PCI IP core market, PLDA was also among the first to introduce a real PCI-X 133MHz core and is today leading the migration to the new PCI Express architecture. These sharp focus and successes that met the needs of more than 400 customers on all continents have made PLDA the 2nd world's largest provider of PCI and derivatives busses IP cores (source Gartner-Dataquest 2003) and a proud member of the 2003 Deloitte European Technology Fast 500.
