The PCI Express® (PCIe®) 6.0 Controller is configurable and scalable controller IP designed for ASIC implementation. The controller supports the PCIe 6.0 specification, including 64 GT/s data rates, PAM4 signaling, FLIT mode, and L0p power state. The PCIe 6.0 architecture will be essential for SoC designers creating next-generation chips that require the movement of large amounts of data within systems, including applications like HPC, cloud computing, artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML), enterprise storage, networking, and automotive.
Rambus integrates and validates the PCIe 6.0 Controller with the customer’s choice of 3rd-party PCIe 6.0 PHY.
The PCIe interface is the critical backbone that moves data at high bandwidth and low latency between various compute nodes such as CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, and workload-specific accelerators. With the torrid rise in bandwidth demands of advanced workloads such as AI/ML training, PCIe 6.0 jumps signaling to 64 GT/s with some of the biggest changes yet in the standard.
