PCI Express is a ubiquitous interface for a wide variety of applications, from connecting accelerators and peripheral devices to data center servers to their use in consumer electronics. PCI Express links carry high value information between the host and the peripheral and from endpoint to endpoint.
The Synopsys Integrity and Data Encryption (IDE) Security IP Module for PCIe 6.0 provides confidentiality, integrity, and replay protection for Transaction Layer Packets (TLP) over PCI Express interfaces as defined in the PCI-SIG IDE specification. The security module integrates seamlessly with the Synopsys PCIe 6.0 controllers to accelerate SoC integration.
The Synopsys IDE Security Module for PCIe 6.0 offers seamless integration with the Synopsys Controller for PCIe 6.0 via a TLP packet-based interface. The packet-based interface matches the data width used by the controller, e.g., 1024-bit or 512-bit, together with the maximum number of TLP prefixes to offer an optimal performance vs. area implementation.
The IDE extended capability registers are accessible from the Synopsys Controller for PCIe 6.0, offering a clear view of the link capabilities during discovery and configuration timeframes.
Interoperability between the Synopsys IDE Security Module and Controller for PCIe 6.0 is part of the development process, offering customers version compatibility and reference integration templates
