White Paper: Methods to Fine-Tune Power Consumption of PCIe devices

 

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.

PLDA Announces SATA Express™ Support in Their Industry-leading XpressRICH3-AXI PCIe® IP

Why using Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) can help improve I/O performance and Reduce Costs

By Philippe Legros, Product Design Architect, PLDA

Introduction

While server virtualization is being widely deployed in an effort to reduce costs and optimize data center resource usage, an additional key area where virtualization has an opportunity to shine is in the area of I/O performance and its role in enabling more efficient application execution.
