PLDA Announces Industry’s First Controller for FPGA supporting PCIe® 4.0 v0.9, Allowing immediate PCIe 4.0 implementation into FPGAs

SAN JOSE, Calif., September 11, 2017 -- PLDA, the industry leader in PCI Express® interface IP solutions, today announced the availability of the industry’s first PCIe soft IP solutions to support PCIe® 4.0, rev 0.9 on FPGA. PLDA’s XpressRICH4™ and XpressRICH4-AXI™ IP solutions bring a track record of proven reliability, with many ASICs and SoCs already in production.  
PLDA PCIe 4.0 soft IP solutions now support the latest features made mandatory as part of the PCIe 4.0 Specification, including support of EIEOS.
In addition, PLDA PCIe 4.0 Soft IPs for Virtex Ultrascale+ have been validated at 16 GT/s in hardware on an early PCIe 4.0 x86-powered platform with end-to-end DMA traffic. These tests demonstrated PLDA PCIe 4.0 IPs running with the maximum achievable throughput over PLDA's PCIe 3.0 to PCIe 4.0 transparent switch.

Don't miss the opportunity to meet our team, see our demos, and learn about our PCIe 4.0 solutions at TSMC OIP Santa clara (September 13) and IP SoC Shanghai (September 14)
