Mobiveil collaborated with Semtech to provide SoC designers a verified PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 controller and PCIe 3.0 PHY. Mobiveil's GPEX PCI Express controller and PCI Express 3.0 PHY, part of Semtech's Snowbush IP family, provide a complete solution for deploying PCIe 3.0 technology on ASIC/SOCs. The combination IP-solution saves up to 24-man months of internal design effort, provides a PCIe 3.0 controller with Single Root I/O Virtualisation (SR-IOV) and Alternative Routing-ID Interpretation (ARI) support.

Recently, Mobiveil's GPEX PCIe controller and Semtech's PHY received a design win with an optical networking equipment supplier. Using this pre-verified PCIe solution to provide chip-to-chip communication for their unique hardware design, the company plans to shorten time to market and reduce the risk to achieve first time success of their design.

"Our collaboration with Mobiveil will offer system-on-chip (SoC) designers a combined PHY and controller for PCIe 3.0 technology," said Semtech Worldwide Marketing Director, Snowbush IP, Kevin Walsh. "Semtech's end-point PHY IP for PCI Express 3.0 technology passed PCI-SIG compliance testing and is now on the PCIe 3.0 Integrators List. It can support both long reach and short reach channels. The Snowbush PHY for PCIe 3.0 technology delivers performance and power efficiency in process nodes down to 28nm. This saves in-house engineering and frees these resources to concentrate on value added circuit design."
