PCIe, PCIe IP, PCI Express

Overview

Synopsys’ DesignWare® IP Solutions for PCI Express® (PCIe®) consist of digital controllers, PHYs, IDE Security Modules, 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 DesignWare 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.

What’s New in PCIe 6.0—Beyond the Bandwidth

Every successive generation of PCIe has doubled the bandwidth of the previous generation. PCIe 6.0 is no different. But in addition to increasing bandwidth, it’s the most significant PCI Express protocol innovation to date. Here is what you need to know.
