Rambus Announces Fully Integrated, Optimized PCI Express Solution
Rambus announced the availability of its fully integrated PCI Express solution, which consists of silicon-proven digital controllers and PHY cells meeting the PCI Express 1.1 base specification. Supported by a PCI Express evaluation kit, the Rambus integrated solution is meant for customers searching for end-to-end implementation and validation, which eliminates the interoperability risks and complexities associated with multi-vendor IP.
Rambusís PCI Express solution includes vertically integrated testing features to help customers facilitate system bring-up and debug for improved production test coverage. The Rambus solution allows design optimizations to be made across the PHY and logic layers to result in lower power, area and latency for cost- and performance-sensitive applications.
For a streamlined design-in experience, Rambus offers developers the PCI Express evaluation kit, a system level evaluation platform that supports:
- Electrical characterization;
- Compliance and interoperability validation;
- Performance evaluation and optimization;
- Application and software development;
- Thorough validation of the target application
Rambus PCI Express digital controllers are highly configurable, and are delivered with a complete test environment, test cases and synthesis environment for maximum ease of integration. Rambus PCI Express PHY cells are available on multiple foundry and captive processes at process nodes ranging from 180nm to 65nm.
Rambus has also demonstrated its Turbo PCI Express platform with serial links operating at 5.0Gbps and 6.25Gbps data rates to meet future PCI Express requirements.
