DesignWare Dual Mode Controller IP for PCI Express

The DesignWare® Dual Mode (RC/EP) Controller IP for PCI Express® (PCIe®) implements a configurable and scalable Root Port or Endpoint interface for integration into ASICs and FPGAs. The silicon-proven IP supports the latest PCI-SIG® and PHY Interface for PCIe (PIPE) specifications and 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.

The synthesizable controller integrates quickly and easily into SoC designs with a user-friendly application interface and conservative timing. The controller is available in your choice of datapath widths, PIPE interface widths, and operating frequencies for optimization of size, power, and throughput.

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.
