PLDA to Showcase its Extensive PCIe Ecosystem During DAC 2016

ASIC Designers and Project Managers can explore the industry’s best suite of tested, silicon-proven, third-party PCIe solutions in one place.

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 6, 2016 -- PLDA, the industry leader in PCI Express® interface IP solutions today announced a focus on their extensive PLDA Ecosystem Partners at their booth during the DAC 2016 show to be held June 6 – 8, 2016 in Austin, Texas. In addition to showcasing their broad selection of PCIe and interface IP, PLDA is providing information on how ASIC designers can accelerate their time-to-market through easy-to-integrate and tested PCIe solutions using the PLDA Ecosystem.

The PLDA PCIe Ecosystem was created to provide ASIC designers with alternatives to traditional, multi-product IP providers which can significantly improve power consumption, reduce area and increase signal integrity in finished chip designs. The PLDA Ecosystem features innovative and well-recognized companies with solutions that include a wide array of PCIe controller configurations (Gen 4, Low power features, SR-IOV) an Embedded and customizable Multiport switch IP, and a wide selection of PHY/Controller combinations which are silicon-proven and/or PCI-SIG compliant. Within the PLDA booth at DAC, visitors will be able to explore joint working sessions with Ecosystem partners, gaining real-time insight into how to solve their biggest design challenges.

The PLDA Ecosystem features companies in several crucial categories that are pinpoint-focused on ASIC design optimization. Ecosystem partners include:

  • PHY IP Providers: Analog Bits, GUC, M31, Omniphy, Rambus, Renesas Electronics, Silabtech, Silicon Creations and Terminus Circuits
  • Verification IP Partners: Avery and Mentor Graphics

A complete list of Partners and a description of their products is available online at PLDA.

“Analog Bits has worked with PLDA in support of many successful customers,” commented Mahesh Tirupattur, Executive VP for Analog Bits.  “Our industry-leading, low power SERDES has been silicon-proven with PLDA’s controller IP across a wide range of process nodes.  Our customers find the integration to be straightforward and we are pleased to be their partner.”

“Being part of the PLDA PCIe ecosystem brings many benefits to our customers”, said Chris Browy, Vice President of Marketing at Avery Design Systems.  “One of the big networking companies who has over 20 designs using Avery and PLDA finds the experience of working with Avery and PLDA to be very effective because in addition to providing a best in class IP and VIP solution, there are readily-available expert support staff who understand both the design and verification IP.” Browy added, “Any questions that come up are openly shared between both Avery and PLDA, who work directly on issues to get the best answers and response times for our customers. Our policy of fully verifying new releases ensures the process proceeds smoothly. ”

“We are pleased to partner with PLDA on PCIe.  Our EZ-VIP™ quick starter kits for PCIe shorten the time it takes SoC integrators to be fully operational with Questa® Verification IP,” said Adam Rose, product marketing manager for Questa Verification IP.  “Questa Verification IP is a key part of the Mentor® Enterprise Verification Platform™, which combines Questa advanced verification solutions, Veloce® OS3 global emulation resourcing technology, and Visualizer™, a powerful debug environment, into a globally accessible, high-performance datacenter resource.”
