A PCIE 2 AMBA AXI bridge is to be used in a system-on-chip (SOC) design for consumer applications

GDA Technologies, a supplier of intellectual property (IP) and electronic design services (EDS), has announced that Renesas Technology, a leading semiconductor company, has selected GDA for development of a PCIE 2 amba AXI bridge to be used in a system-on-chip (SOC) design for consumer applications.

'GDA is a leader in the emerging market for PCI Express products', says Manabu Shibata, Department Manager, System Solution business group at Renesas.

'GPEX technology is helping Renesas integrate PCI Express into its design to deliver outstanding reliability, scalability, and performance'.

'Renesas is a leader in their market space, and we are excited to work with them', added Amit Saxena, Director of IP Business at GDA Technologies.

'The Renesas design-win is a validation of our PAB IP core quality, because they are noted throughout the industry for selecting only the best class of solutions for their products'.

The PCI Express-AMBA bridge (PAB) is a highly flexible and configurable design with a PCI Express interface on one side and an AMBA interface on the other.

The bridge architecture is such to facilitate interface with a PCI Express controller used as end-point, or root complex.

On the system side, the PAB provides flexibility to use the AHB or AXI interface.

The bridge is independent of applications, implementation tools, and target technology, and its architecture is carefully tailored to optimise latency, power consumption, and silicon footprint.

GDA is a member of the Intel Developer Network for PCI Express Architecture, Intel Communications Alliance, PCISIG, Arapahoe Working Group and PICMG.
