Synopsys PCI Express (PCIe) IP Solutions

PCIe, PCIe IP, PCI Express

Overview

Synopsys IP Solutions for PCI Express® (PCIe®) consist of digital controllers, Integrity and Data Encryption (IDE) Security Modules, PHYs and verification IP. The IP solutions are designed to support all required features of the PCIe 6.0 64GT/s (Gen6), PCIe 5.0 32GT/s (Gen5), PCIe 4.0 16GT/s (Gen4), 3.1 8GT/s (Gen3), 2.1 5GT/s (Gen2) and 1.1 2.5GT/s (Gen1), and latest PIPE specifications. 

As the leading supplier of PCIe IP, Synopsys offers silicon-proven IP solutions for PCIe that provide high-throughput, low-latency, and power-efficient external connectivity in SoCs for mobile, networking, storage, cloud computing, AI, and automotive applications. Extensive interoperability testing with third-party products and strict quality measures combined with an expert technical support team enables designers to accelerate time-to-market and reduce integration risk.

<p>PCIe, the most popular interconnect in compute, AI and storage systems, is now offering faster data rate, higher performance, lower power and lower latency than the previous generation. Because of these reasons and the addition of PAM-4 signaling, challenges such as signal integrity, power integrity, implementation, IP integration and more must be considered when designing 64GT/s systems.</p>
