BaySand Announces Immediate Availability of PCI Express Gen1/Gen2/Gen3 Endpoint and Rootport Solution and Licensing For mcFPGA and mcASIC

BaySand Inc., a supplier of ASIC/IP platforms, today announced the immediate availability of PCI Express Gen1/Gen2/Gen3 Endpoint and Rootport controller, as well as PHY IPs as part of its mcFPGA/mcASIC families. BaySand’s PCI Express IP provides a complete interface IP solution for applications requiring mid to high bandwidth, optimal signal reliability, ease of use, maximum interoperability and reprogrammability across devices using BaySand’s proprietary MCSC technology.

The IP solution supports PCI Express Gen3 operating at 8Gbps. The PCI Express controller IP is available as a soft core for the controller, while the PHY is provided as a hardened IP for a range of floorplan configurations and supports up to x8 lanes. Both IPs can be instantiated in mcFPGA/mcASIC family devices directly, and each controller or PHY IP can be licensed individually. The PHY includes a PIPE 3.0 compliant interface, combined with a full spectrum of calibration techniques to maximize timing and voltage margin. The controller IP supports AXI interface of ease of integration with customer logic. The controller IP can be configured for either as an Endpoint or a Rootport, and can support flexible lane configurations of x1, x2, x4 and x8 lanes. The controller IP also includes an optional DMA engine. With the combined offering of both the controller and PHY IP, BaySand helps to significantly lower integration risk for customers requiring first silicon success.
