PLDA intros QuickPCIe - PCI Express interface IP with enhanced DMA

SAN JOSE, USA: PLDA, the industry leader in PCI Express, USB 3.0, and high speed interface IP, announced QuickPCIe - the industry’s most advanced PCI Express interface IP solution featuring a high performance configurable DMA. QuickPCIe is a revolutionary breakthrough in IP integration, standardizing on the AMBA AXI open interconnect protocol to provide a unified and scalable interface to user logic.

The AMBA AXI4 protocol is the latest generation and highest performance on-chip interconnect open standard for the connection of functional blocks in a System-on-Chip (SoC).The integration of a scalable PCI Express interface IP and a high-performance AXI4 based DMA engine enables ease of development of complex FPGA designs with stringent performance requirements.

Designed for Endpoint and Root Port applications, QuickPCIe is compliant to the PCI Express Specification revision 3.0 and to the AMBA AXI4 Specification v2.0.
QuickPCIe supports PCI Express x1, x2, x4, x8 and x16 interfaces at Gen1, Gen2 and Gen3 speeds (8.0 GT/s).

QuickPCIe built-in multi-channel DMA supports packet-based and block based data transfers through multiple AXI4 interfaces. QuickPCIe also supports Xilinx and Altera PCI Express Hard IP and PLDA PCI Express Soft IP.

According to Stephane Hauradou, PLDA’s CTO: “QuickPCIe is a real advantage to our customers who require a PCI Express interface that is both robust and easy to implement. The combination of a hard or soft PCI Express IP with advanced DMA capability and a standardized user interface significantly accelerates time to market and encourages IP reuse.”
