Northwest Logic's PCI Express Gen3 Core and S2C's Virtex-7 ASIC Prototyping Platform fully validated together

Northwest Logic's PCI Express Gen3 Core and S2C's Virtex-7 ASIC Prototyping Platform fully validated together Aug 18, 2014

S2C boasts largest Prototype Ready™ interface library in the industry

BEAVERTON, Oregon and SAN JOSE, Calif—— August 18, 2014 —— Northwest Logic and S2C, Inc. announced today that Northwest Logic’s PCI Express® (PCIe®) 3.0 solution, including the Expresso 3.0 Core (PCI Express 3.0 Controller Core) and family of DMA Cores has been validated on S2C’s ASIC prototyping platforms. These cores are now the latest addition to S2C's Prototype Ready™ IP suite. This validation was done with 8 lanes running at 8 Gbit/sec SERDES rates. The joint validation effort ensures user’s confidence on integrating the high-speed PCIe IP into their SoC designs, shortening the project cycle.


"For systems that demand high speed communications, PCIe Gen3 is a must-have technology," said Toshio Nakama, Chief Executive Officer of S2C. "Partnering with Northwest Logic in the S2C Prototype Ready IP program provides customers immediate access to critical IP, pre-verified and running on a high-speed, high-capacity prototyping platform. Our Prototype Ready IP suite has over 70 pre-verified IP cores and daughter cards. With proven performance and a prototyping reference flow, IP integration is smooth allowing customers to accelerate their SoC design cycle. I am happy to have Northwest Logic's participation."


S2C's unique FPGA-based solutions enable designers to quickly implement and debug their latest high-performance designs, as well as develop and refine system software. S2C's TAI Logic Module family provides high-speed GTX ports, on-board DDR3 memory, and various interface daughter cards for users to easily verify high-performance interface IP such as PCIe, SATA, and USB.


Northwest Logic provides a complete PCI Express Solution. This solution includes Northwest Logic's high-performance, easy-to-use, silicon-proven Expresso 3.0/2.1/1.1 Cores for PCI Express, DMA Back-End Core which provides high-performance scatter-gather DMA engines, Drivers (Linux & Windows) and Application software. Additionally, Northwest Logic offers high-performance Memory Controller and MIPI cores.

"We're very pleased to be working with S2C," said Brian Daellenbach, President, Northwest Logic."Customers complete their development work quickly and with confidence by leveraging our high-performance and full-featured PCIe cores, combined with S2C's off-the-shelf, high-quality prototyping platforms."
