Cray adopted Denali's Databahn PCIe 3.0
controller core and PureSpec verification IP
Cray has adopted Denali Databahn 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 GT/s 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.
Denali's Databahn PCIe cores and PureSpec verification
IP software for PCI Express provide full support of the
latest capabilities such as Internal error reporting, ID
based ordering, TLP processing hints, Optimized buffer flush/fill,
Atomic operations, Re-Sizable BAR, Extended TAG enable,
Dynamic power allocation, and Latency tolerance reporting
"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 research and development at Cray. "Not only has
Denali met our functional and performance requirements,
but their reputable technology, verification expertise and
strong customer reputation made them a valued supplier."
"Denali continues to provide the industry's highest-quality
IP solutions for PCIe technology, which enables our customers,
such as Cray, to reduce their design risk and enable them
to develop complex projects on schedule," remarks Ashwin
Matta, Director of PCIe Core Technology for Denali Software.
"We value Cray's trust in Denali and are confident
that our design and verification IP products will accelerate
their design time, meet their performance goals and help
them achieve a competitive advantage."
