DesignWare PCI Express Single Root-IO Virtualization IP

The DesignWare® IP for PCI Express with Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) implements a configurable and scalable SR-IOV solution providing designers with a high-quality IP that reduces risk and improves time-to-market. The silicon-proven DesignWare SR-IOV IP is compliant to the latest PCI Express, PIPE and SR-IOV specifications and has been extensively validated with multiple hardware platforms, PHYs and PCIe verification suites. As the industry standard for PCI Express, Synopsys offers a comprehensive IP solution that is in volume production and has been successfully implemented in a wide range of applications.

The synthesizable core 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 core is available in your choice of datapath widths, PIPE interface widths, and operating frequencies for optimization of size, power, and throughput. DesignWare PCI Express cores are fully compliant with the PCI Express Base Specifications and are used to power the industry's PCI Express compliance testing at PCI-SIG Compliance Workshops.
