PLDA's XpressRICH3-AXI™ PCI Express® 3.0 IP with AMBA AXI Support Passes PCI-SIG® PCIe® 3.0 Compliance Testing
SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
PLDA, the industry leader in PCI (News - Alert) Express® and interface IP solutions
today announced that its XpressRICH3-AXI™ PCI Express® (PCIe®) 3.0
solution with AMBA AXI support, passed all Gold and Interoperability
tests performed by the PCI-SIG® committee during its most recent
workshop in December 2013. The testing was conducted using the PLDA
XpressRICH3-AXI IP, running in an add-in card configuration on a Xilinx (News - Alert)®
KC705 board, based on a Xilinx Kintex®-7 FPGA.
"Successful completion of the PCI-SIG compliance testing is a critical
step in validating PLDA's XpressRICH3-AXI PCIe 3.0 IP solution. Combined
with our extensive history of groundbreaking PCIe development and a
track record of over 5,800 PCI Express designs in silicon, this
certification provides our global customer base with a further
indication of the quality and ease-of-integration they have come to
expect from our IP products." said Stephane Hauradou, CTO of PLDA.
PCI-SIG is the consortium that owns and manages PCI. Its compliance
workshops offer members the opportunity to test and validate their
products before they enter the field. Testing is completed against
PCI-SIG maintained systems, as well as other leading manufacturers of
PCI products. The rigorous testing process includes interoperability
testing on a range of PC hardware products, transaction layer and data
link testing, physical layer testing and configuration testing.
"As a PCI-SIG member, PLDA holds a valued role in the success of PCIe
technology," said Al Yanes, PCI-SIG president and chairman.
"Participating in PCIe specification compliance testing helps enable a
robust PCIe ecosystem."
