PLDA Announces Live PCI Express Gen3 x8 Demo Running on Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA

PLDA’s PCIe Gen3 Soft IP demo will be available for review at the

DAC Conference in San Francisco, CA., June 3-7, 2012

SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 1, 2012 — PLDA, the industry leader in PCI Express® and high-speed interface IP, today announced it will be debuting a live PCIe® x8 Gen3 demo featuring PLDA’s leading PCIe Gen3 soft IP core and running on a Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA during the DAC Conference, June 3 -7 in San Francisco, CA. The PLDA PCIe Gen3 IP core is the first to run on a -2 medium speed grade Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA while consuming only a fraction of available device resources, allowing unmatched design flexibility.

PLDA is an established leader in PCIe® interface IP, with over 2000 designs in production silicon since its inception. With significant design firsts including the first working PCIe® Gen3 IP solution for both ASIC and FPGA and key PCIe® design-wins from leading companies, PLDA is the industry’s clear choice for PCIe® IP cores.

Key features of PLDA Gen3 IP Core for Xilinx FPGA include:

  • Supports PCIe 3.0 at Gen3, Gen2, Gen1 speeds, in x1, x2, x4, x8
  • Backwards-compatible to PCIe 2.0 at Gen2/Gen1 speeds and PCIe 1.1
  • Targeted to Xilinx Kintex-7 and Virtex-7 in -2 medium speed grade
  • Available with AMBA AXI4 or Tx/Rx user interface
  • Optional advanced integrated multi-channel DMA
  • Complete solution including IP core as encrypted RTL or source code, bus functional models, software design kit, reference designs and complete technical support by IP experts

The PLDA Gen3 IP portfolio includes QuickPCIe - A highly configurable PCIe IP with advanced AXI4-based DMA, and XpressRICH3 - An ASIC-grade PCIe IP with advanced features. For more information on the PLDA PCIe Gen3 IP offering for Xilinx FPGA, please visit
