PCIe-to-Serial RapidIO Intelligent Bridge IP Core

Product Description

The PCIe-to-Serial RapidIO Intelligent Bridge IP Core is architected for applications requiring high-bandwidth bridging between PCI Express® (PCIe) devices and serial RapidIO® digital signal processors (DSPs), processors, and switch fabric. The IP connects a serial RapidIO port operating up to 5.0 GHz to an 8x or 4x PCI Express Gen1 or 4x Gen2 through an intelligent non-transparent bridge. Sophisticated queuing within the intelligent bridge assures the highest utilization of available port bandwidth.

The PCIe-to-Serial RapidIO Intelligent Bridge IP Core is designed for bridging the growing number of RapidIO and PCI Express applications. The core is independent of physical layer designs, implementation tools, and target technology, and is capable of addressing a variety of solutions for ASICs and FPGAs.
