PLDA Switch IP for PCIe is a customizable and scalable switch design intended to be embedded into ASIC, SoC, and FPGA. PCIe® architecture has become a standard in the enterprise space due to the advantages it provides in term of performance and reliability. Embedding a configurable PCIe switch IP into chip designs provides developers with extra flexibility, scalability and reliability when interconnecting multiple PCIe devices, with significant gains in term of latency and power consumption compared to ASSP solutions.
PLDA Announces XpressSWITCH™ - The Industry’s First Compliant PCI Express® Multiport Embedded Switch IP
XpressSWITCH is an exclusive IP that provides switching logic along with one upstream and multiple embedded or external downstream ports and is optimized for FPGA and ASIC designs.
SAN JOSE, Calif., February 18, 2016 -- PLDA, the industry leader in PCI Express® controller IP solutions, today announced their new XpressSWITCH™ customizable multiport embedded switch IP for FPGA and ASIC designs. PLDA’s XpressSWITCH has achieved PCI Express (PCIe®) compliance based on interoperability testing during the recent PCI-SIG® Compliance Workshop in December 2015.
PLDA’s PCIe Switch Solution provides a customizable and scalable switch design tailored for the needs of the PCIe switch marketplace. The PCIe® architecture has become a standard within the storage data centers due to the advantages it delivers in latency and performance. PCIe switches manage dataflow within a device, delivering the flexibility, scalability and configurability required to connect a large pool of drives or networks.
In that presentation, Rabih Eid, Support Manager, explains how to take advantage of PCIe Embedded Switch technology, reducing BOM, reusing existing designs, decreasing system power consumption and improving overall performance compared to an ASSP device.

Methods to Fine-Tune Power Consumption of PCIe devices
A basic paradox of electronic evolution is the desire to enable the execution of more functions while consuming less power and silicon area. For PCIe® applications, this goal is not a new one. A PCI power management specification has been available since 1997, and PCI Express® has featured native power management since its initial release in 2002. In addition, there has always been a recognized need for low power in the mobile market.
San Jose, California – August 3, 2015 – PLDA, the industry leader in PCI Express® controller IP solutions, today announced that its XpressRICH3-AXI PCIe® 3.0 IP is now fully compliant with the SATA Express™ standard. This breakthrough IP product leverages the popular and flexible PCIe interface while expanding it to deliver the benefits of SATA Express for design projects in the SSD space. In order to achieve compliance with the SATA Express specification, PLDA added new features to its leading XpressRICH3-AXI soft IP that enabled compatibility with NVMe and AHCI. Integration of this capability delivers the two interfaces required for SATA Express implementation.
