PLDA, the industry leader in PCI Express(R) and high-speed interface IP today announced incorporation of its PCIe-AXI bridge IP into Microsemi Corporation's recently announced SmartFusion(R)2 SoC FPGA. Microsemi's SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs are the only devices that address fundamental requirements for advanced security, high reliability and low power in a wide range of critical applications. SmartFusion2 integrates an inherently reliable flash-based FPGA fabric, a 166 megahertz (MHz) ARM(R) Cortex(TM)-M3 processor, advanced security processing accelerators, DSP blocks, SRAM, eNVM, and industry-required high-performance communication interfaces all on a single chip.
First Successful PCIe Gen 3 Controller and PHY Combination on TSMC’s 28nm
PLDA, the industry leader in PCI Express® IP solutions and GUC, the Flexible ASIC LeaderTM , today announced successful test chips for the industry’s first combined PCIe Gen 3 Controller IP and PHY IP solution on TSMC 28nm HPM (High Performance Mobile) process. The combined PCIe 3.0 Controller/PHY solution is in initial production and has been incorporated into demo boards.
