PLDA, the industry leader in PCI Express® IP solutions and GUC, the Flexible ASIC LeaderTM , today announced a combined PCIe Gen 3 Controller IP and PHY IP solution, optimized for the needs of the storage market. The combined PCIe 3.0 Controller/PHY solution is in initial production and has been incorporated into a demo board.
Within the rapidly growing storage and SSD market, customers are focused on reducing power consumption and maintaining data integrity while increasing performance. The combined PLDA and GUC solution provides a fully integrated and silicon-proven solution for PCIe Gen3 with all the key features required for storage applications including support for features like enhanced end to end data protection (with LCRC, ECRC, ECC, Parity and CRC), SRIS (Separate Reference Independent SSC) and L1 PM Substates.
The PLDA XpressRICH3 IP is a high performance, low latency, highly-configurable PCI Express 3.0 soft IP supporting endpoint, root port, switch and bridge configurations. In addition, The PLDA IP provides advanced features such as SR-IOV, multi-function, multi-VC, ATC, TPH, PASID, ECRC, AER, and more and is compliant to the PCI Express rev.3.0 specification. PLDA’s PCIe 3.0 IP is also available with the industry-standard AMBA AXI4 interface under the version XpressRICH3-AXI .
GUC's PCIe Gen 3 PHY is designed specifically to support the needs of the storage market. Based on GUC’s proven high-speed SERDES technology, the performance of GUCs PCIe Gen 3 PHY exceeds PCI Express Base Specification rev.3.0 while being fully BASE and CEM spec compliant, with support for features like SRIS (Separate Reference Independent SSC) and L1 PM Substates for storage applications.
In order to provide a more complete overview of PCIe and its benefits for storage applications, PLDA has produced a white paper, titled “Conquering the challenges of PCIe and NVMe and launching the most competitive Enterprise PCI SSD”. This paper is available from the PLDA website at www.plda.com and provides an in-depth, technical view of why PCIe is a significant advantage to designers in storage and SSD.
PLDA XpressRICH3 IP is available now from PLDA. The PHY IP is available now from GUC.
Evaluation boards with a single chip with PLDA’s PCIe 3.0 Controller and GUC’s PCIe 3.0 PHY combination are available for review now. Please contact PLDA to request an evaluation.

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
