Denali PCI Express 3.0 Controller IP Core Adopted By Cray
October 20, 2009 -- Denali Software, Inc. today announced that Cray has adopted Denali Databahn PCI Express (PCIe) controller core and PureSpec verification IP (VIP), which support the latest PCIe 3.0 specifications from the PCI-SIG. The 16-lane PCIe 3.0 controller from Denali can deliver 128 GTps of raw bandwidth, surpassing a 100G Ethernet interface. This is equivalent to transferring a full 3-hour high-definition movie file in under one second.
"Our systems are deployed in mission-critical applications and require superior performance, scalability, and reliability. After examining the available solutions in the industry, it was clear that Denali was more than capable of delivering a PCI Express 3.0 controller with the critical features that we needed," states Peg Williams, Senior Vice President of R&D at Cray. "Not only has Denali met our functional and performance requirements, but its reputable technology, verification expertise and strong customer reputation made them a valued supplier."
