DesignWare IP for PCI Express to AMBA 4 AXI/3 AXI Bridge

The DesignWare® IP for PCI Express® (PCIe®) to ARM® AMBA® 4 AXI/3 AXI Bridge enables designers who use the ARM® AMBA 3 AXI or 4 AXI on-chip bus to easily add external connectivity via PCIe to their system-on-chip (SoC) designs. The bridge is an add-on product that works in conjunction with the portfolio of silicon-proven DesignWare IP for PCI Express, including Endpoint, Root Complex and Dual Mode controllers.

The PCIe to AMBA 4 AXI/3 AXI Bridge is configurable and scalable to meet the multiple application requirements of today’s demanding high-bandwidth, low latency designs. It supports the PCIe Base PHY Interface for PCIe (PIPE) and AMBA 4 AXI/3 AXI specifications.

The bridge manages the AXI and PCIe protocols, including their different ordering models, freeing designers to concentrate on application design instead of the details of complex interface standards. The high-quality, synthesizable IP is available in a variety of datapath widths, and operating frequencies for optimizing size, power, and throughput. The bridge integrates quickly and easily into SoC designs with a user-friendly application interface and conservative timing suitable for a wide range of ASIC and FPGA technologies.

The silicon-proven DesignWare IP for PCI Express to AMBA 4 AXI/3 AXI Bridge has been extensively validated with multiple hardware platforms, PHYs, and verification suites, providing designers with a high-quality IP that reduces risk and improves time-to-market.

Synopsys offers a portfolio of silicon-proven IP for PCIe consisting of controllers, PHYs, verification IP, IP Prototyping Kits, Software Development Kits and Interface IP Subsystems. As the industry standard for PCIe, Synopsys solution is in volume production and has been successfully implemented in a wide range of applications.
