Mercury Computer Systems Announces the First Available Serial RapidIO-to-PCIe Bridge IP Core

via PRNewswire

The Serial RapidIO-to-PCIe Bridge IP Core is architected for applications that require high-bandwidth bridging between PCI Express devices and SerialRapidIO fabrics and devices. It bridges a 4X serial RapidIO port, operating upto 3.125 GHz, to an 8X PCI Express port operating at 2.5 GHz, through an intelligent non-transparent bridge.

With the rapid growth in the Serial RapidIO ecosystem, there is arequirement to co-exist and connect to existing buses such as PCIe -- theMercury Serial RapidIO-to-PCIe Bridge IP core fills that need. There is also considerable demand from designers to bridge from Serial RapidIO to other interface standards, and Mercury supports those applications with a comprehensive design service and IP portfolio.

Mercury intends to leverage its relationships with several leading semiconductor technology suppliers to provide the bridge as either an FPGAnetlist that will be supported by Altera, Lattice, and Xilinx FPGAs; pre-programmed FPGAs; or license the IP for ASIC or FPGA environments.

The Mercury Serial RapidIO-to-PCIe Bridge IP Core is available now. Formore information, visit or call 866-627-6951. Pricinginformation is available by contacting Mercury at
