LOS ALTOS, Calif., 1 Feb. 2007. Eureka Technology Inc., an intellectual property (IP) core provider, has announced that OKI Electric Industry Co. Ltd., of Tokyo, Japan, has implemented the 4-lane PCI Express IP core from Eureka Technology in its product development. The PCI Express IP core is used in ASIC and field programmable gate array (FPGA) devices.

"The licensing demonstrates the many benefits of using high quality IP cores, such as reduction in design time, risk, and cost," says Simon Lau, president of Eureka Technology. "Our customers benefit from having a real turnkey solution and smooth migration to PCI Express by using our silicon proven IP cores."

Eureka demonstrated its PCI Express IP core at the PCI-SIG Compliance Workshops and passed all PCI Express compliance testing. The results are certified by PCI-SIG and incorporated into the PCI-SIG integrators list. A hardware development board for PCI Express is also available from Eureka Technology.

The Eureka PCI Express Controller Core includes the Transaction Layer, Data Link Layer, and Physical Layer of the PCI Express Specification. It conforms to the latest PCI Express revision and supports industrial standard PIPE interface for on-chip PHY core and external PHY chips.

With technology independent design methodologies, Eureka's PCI Express Controller Core can be implemented in virtually all ASIC and FPGA technologies available.

While supporting the latest PCI-Express standard, the core shares the same user interface as existing PCI and PCI-X controller core, ensuring an easy migration for customers to PCI Express standard. The common user interface also allows the PCI Express Controller Core to be integrated easily with Eureka's other proven IP cores, such as system controller and MemConnect memory controller.
