The IntelliProp IPP-NV186A-BR is an NVMe-to-SATA Bridge that utilizes the IntelliProp NVMe Target IP Core and the IntelliProp SATA AHCI Host Core to create an NVMe-to-SATA protocol bridge. The bridge is architected such that the command submissions, completion notifications and data transmissions may be either passed through without interruption or intercepted for analysis or modification. The architecture implements a ”sandbox” area in the bridge so that IntelliProp customers may implement custom RTL and/or firmware in the bridge.
The NVMe protocol interface is compliant to the NVMe 1.4 specification and the SATA interface is compliant with the SATA 3.3 specification as defined by the Serial ATA International Organization (SATA-IO). The IPP-NV186A-BR is fully verified using a coverage driven methodology in pseudo random simulation.
