Mobiveil's PCI Express 4.0 Endpoint Controller Passes PCI-SIG Gold and Interoperability Testing

December 23, 2019 Tiera Oliver

Mobiveil Inc., a supplier of silicon intellectual property (SIP), platforms and IP-enabled design services, announced that its GPEX PCI Express (PCIe) 4.0 Endpoint Controller passed PCI-SIG Gold and Interoperability testing.

To achieve compliance, the Mobiveil GPEX IP passed protocol, electrical and interoperability testing for the PCIe 4.0 specification that reaches 16 gigatransfers per second (GT/s). Its flexible and configurable IP design targets endpoint or root complex type devices, as well as switches and bridge implementations. The controller IP architecture is tailored to optimize link utilization, latency, reliability, power consumption and reduce the silicon footprint.

The PCI Express 4.0 architecture enables a number of applications as end point, root complex, bridges, switches and retimers. The emergence of NVM Express as a Flash Storage industry standard utilizes the PCI Express 4.0 architecture and performance for faster storage.

Mobiveil's controller has a configurable and layered architecture independent of application logic, PHYs, implementation tools and, most important, the target technology itself. It allows the user to migrate between standard cell technologies and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The controller's backend interface can be integrated into a range of applications.

Availability

Mobiveil's GPEX PCIe 4.0 Controller IP for endpoint, root-complex and switch configurations is available now. Its design can be implemented in a number of process technologies.

Pricing is available on request.
