Synopsys, Inc. announced the industry's first complete PCIe 7.0 IP solution consisting of controller, IDE security module, PHY, and verification IP. This solution will enable chip makers to address the demanding bandwidth and latency requirements of transferring massive amounts of data for compute-intensive AI workloads while supporting broad ecosystem interoperability. Large language models' demand for computational capabilities is growing at a breakneck pace, with trillion of parameters needing to be processed in data centers as fast and reliably as possible.

Synopsys offers the industry's only PCIe standards-based solution for secure data transfers up to 512 GB/s bidirectional in a x16 configuration to mitigate AI workload data bottlenecks. Synopsys will demonstrate this technology at PCI-SIG DevCon in Santa Clara on June 12 and 13, 2024. Industry's First Complete Synopsys PCIe 7.0 IP Solution Synopsys' IP solution for PCIe 7.0, including controller, IDE security module, PHY and verification IP, reduces integration risk for AI and HPC networking chips.

The IP solution, compliant to evolving standards, improves interconnect power efficiency by up to 50% and enables twice the interconnect bandwidth for the same chip perimeter compared to prior PCIe generations. Synopsys PCIe 7.0 Controller IP enables low latency, high-bandwidth links with a full endpoint to root-complex solution that supports all required features for backward compatibility. Synopsys PCIe 7.0 PHY IP provides excellent signal integrity with speeds up to 128 Gb/s per lane, and seamlessly integrates with Synopsys CXL Controller IP solutions.

Synopsys Integrity and Data Encryption (IDE) Security IP for PCIe 7.0 provides confidentiality, integrity, and replay protection against hardware-level attacks. Synopsys PCIe 7.0 Verification IP and hardware-assisted verification solutions offer built-in protocol checks and multiple configurations of controller and PHY to accelerate verification and validation closure. Broad Portfolio of Synopsys IP for High-Performance Computing Synopsys offers the industry's broadest high-speed interface IP portfolio for high-performance computing SoC designs, including complete, secure IP solutions for PCIe 7.0, 1.6T/800G Ethernet, CXL, and HBM.

With Synopsys' extensive interoperability testing, comprehensive technical support, and robust IP performance, designers can accelerate time to silicon success and production. Industry Leaders Embrace PCIe 7.0 for AI Data Center Infrastructure The new Synopsys PCIe 7.0 IP solution is backed by leading companies to meet the market demand for advanced, trusted interconnects that enable engineering teams to start their next generation of HPC and AI chip designs with confidence.
