Design and verification IP support the new Mobile PCI Express specification

March 11, 2013 // By Julien Happich
Cadence Design Systems has introduced what the company claims to be the first commercially available design IP (IP) and verification IP (VIP) supporting the new Mobile PCI Express (M-PCIe) specification.

Cadence's M-PCIe IP and VIP solution enables the PCI Express architecture to operate over the MIPI M-PHY physical layer technology, extending the benefits of the PCIe I/O standard to low-power mobile devices including thin laptops, tablets and smartphones. Teaming the benefits of the PCI Express standard with the leading mobile physical interface (M-PHY) is expected to enable greater innovation in mobile devices as technology developed for the wired world is migrated to mobile platforms.
"Mobile PCI Express is foundational to developing the next generation of mobile devices," said Martin Lund, senior vice president, SoC Realization Group, Cadence. "By providing the IP and VIP supporting the newly minted specifications, customers can now get their cool, new products to market much faster."
