IntelliProp continues to lead Gen-Z enablement with IP and Products

LONGMONT, Colo., Feb. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — IntelliProp, Inc., a leader in innovative Intellectual Property (IP) Cores and semiconductors for Data Storage and Memory applications, announced today that they will release a full package of Gen-Z IP Cores that will enable companies to design Gen-Z products supporting the Core Specification Rev 1.0 release.

“Earlier today, the Gen-Z Consortium announced the public release of Rev 1.0 of the Gen-Z Core Specification and we believe that this will kick start Gen-Z product development in earnest. IntelliProp is investing in development for both IP Cores and ASSP products for Gen-Z to help get end products to market and we will be releasing several key pieces of IP in the first quarter of 2018,” said Larry Cleland, Director, Sales & Marketing at IntelliProp. “The release of Core Specification 1.0 represents a major achievement for the Gen-Z Consortium and the release of these critical IP blocks by IntelliProp enables quick integration into FPGA and ASIC product development efforts,” stated Kurtis Bowman, President of the Gen-Z Consortium. The scheduled IP Core releases include:

  • IPC-GZ189A-DT Gen-Z Responder
  • IPC-GZ190A-DT Gen-Z Requester
  • IPC-GZ196A-ZM Gen-Z Physical Layer for 802.3 Phy
  • IPC-GZ197A-ZM Gen-Z Physical Layer for PCIe Phy
  • IPC-GZ198A-ZM Gen-Z Link Protocol Layer

IntelliProp is also continuing the ASSP development of the IPA-PM185-CT “Cobra” Gen-Z Hybrid Memory Controller. “The IntelliProp “Cobra” media controller provides support for switchable Gen-Z traffic to ECC protected DRAM cache and to 6-channel NAND interface for low latency, fabric attached persistent memory storage. The Cobra Media Controller supports up to 32GB of DRAM and 3TB of NAND. The Cobra controller has been used to support the Gen-Z consortium demo at Flash Memory Summit and SC17 this past fall,” said Erich Hanke, Principal Engineer at IntelliProp.
