Achronix Semiconductors’ Speedster PCI-SIG Compliance for Hardened PCI Express.

Achronix Semiconductor Corporation, valued supplier of WPG Americas, Inc., announced that its Speedster22i devices have achieved PCI-SIG compliance with the PCI Express 3.0 Specification for x8 lanes. These devices are now included in the PCI-SIG integrators list.

The Speedster22i devices, based on Intel’s 22nm Trigate technology, are the only field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) that contain a broad range of embedded hard IP, including PCI Express Gen3 with integrated DMA Engine, DDR3, 100G Ethernet and Interlaken.

The Speedster22i’s hardening key interface IP reduces power consumption, frees a substantial amount of the programmable logic fabric and increases the effective capacity of the FPGA. The embedded hard IP Speedster22i HD FPGAs completely eliminates the cost of purchasing, integrating, closing timing and testing of functions that are required when soft IP is used. In addition, the PCI Express logic cores in the Speedster22i devices support Gen 1, 2, and 3 in x1, x4, and x8 configurations.

The Speedster22i provides unprecedented performance and flexibility. This and other FPGAs are ideal for applications that require high-data throughput, like:

  • Networking
  • Optical/telecom
  • Encryption
  • High-performance computing
  • Video and imaging
  • Test and measurement
  • Military and aerospace
