PCIe® 5.0 Link Training at 32 GT/s between PLDA's PCIe 5.0 controller and Broadcom PHY


The demonstration reaffirms the reliability and flexibility of the combined solution for SoC designers

PLDA, the industry leader in PCI Express® controller IP solutions has today unveiled their PCIe 5.0 demonstration.  The demo showcases stable PCIe 5.0 Link Training (32 GT/s) and exceptional signal integrity with a Broadcom® PCIe 5.0 PHY platform.

PCIe 5.0 Simulation Verification Demonstration

PLDA, Aldec and Avery joinly present and demonstrate a new PCIe 5.0 IP + VIP UVM simulation and debugging environment. PLDA's PCIe 5.0 XpressRICH features include automatic datapath scaling, configurable pipelining (enabling optimal solutions in both ASIC and FPGA), RX Stream mode for custom credit management, L1 PM substrates, dynamically adjustable application clock frequency and clock/power gating.

Learn how to configure your PCIe Switch IP

In this video, we will show you just how easy it is  to configure an embedded  PCIe switch with the XpressSWITCH wizard.



In order to address the increased density of silicon chips and the high performance required by applications in Enterprise Storage and Networking, High performance computing, and AI, SoC designers now have the ability to embed  a PCIe switch instead of employing a traditional external PCIe switch chip.

This enables much reduced latency, power consumption, and complexity, by removing the need for external PHYs.
