    Blog Post: How to speed SSD program time with a boost converter
    Published. November 5, 2018

    Solid-state drive (SSD) storage is becoming more popular in PC, data-center and telecom applications, offering the benefits of faster speeds and a more compact size compared to Hard Disk Drive (HDDs). The new Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) Host Controller Interface Specification SSD offers three times faster write speeds and six times faster read speeds compared to traditional Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) SSDs. However, increasing...

    SERDES Channel Compliance: Easier Said than Done?
    Published. June 13, 2018

    Data transfers can be done in two distinct ways, parallel (DDR2/3) and serial (PCIE/USB). As the speeds of data transfer increase, hardware engineers face newer design challenges. To keep up with the new speeds, designers must adhere to many well-established industry standards. But that is easier said than done… Until now. With the latest release […]...

    pcilist: because sometimes you really, really need to know how your PCIe devices are configured
    Published. March 29, 2017

    If you don’t know what I am talking about here, that’s fine. I’ll assume you don’t do hardware, or you call someone else when there is a hardware problem. If you think “well gee, don’t we have lspci? so why do we need this?” then you probably have not really tried to use lspci to […]...

    What Does it Take to Migrate from e to UVMe?
    Published. September 5, 2012

    So you are developing your verification environment in e , and like everyone else, you've been hearing a lot of buzz surrounding UVM (Universal Verification Methodology). Maybe you would also like to give it a try. The first question that pops in your mind is, "What would it take to migrate from e to UVM e ?" Well, this is a bit of a trick question. The short answer is that if you've adopted e RM in the past, migration to UVM e will only take a few minutes. If your environment is...

    Introducing the VPCIe framework
    Published. August 31, 2013

    Introduction My daily work involves platforms featuring an embedded CPU communcating with a FPGA device over a PCI Express link (PCIe for short). The main purpose of this link is for the CPU to convey configuration, control, and status commands to hardware slaves implemented in the FPGA. For data intensive applications (2D XRay detector readout backend), this link can also be used as a DMA......
