PCI-Express controller Cores and PHY Solution
PCI-Express is the standard likely to dominate the next wave of conversions to high performance serial interconnects. Faraday is supporting this development with highly differentiated silicon IPs to bring this technology to ASICs. Faraday's PCI-Express PHY and controller provide a complete, fully integrated, silicon proven ASIC and IP solutions for PCI-Express end-point and bridge applications.
Faraday's advanced PHY design requires substantially less area, pins, and power than all other equivalent products. It fits entirely within the IO pad frame, and a 4-lane port uses only 30 pins and less than 300 mW. The controller core is only 70K gates, and it can be used with or without the PHY.
