Eureka Technology Successfully Validated and Demonstrated PCI Express Controller IP Core

LOS ALTOS, California, July 15, 2005 - Eureka Technology Inc., a leading intellectual property (IP) core provider, today announces the successful completion of the demonstration and validation of its PCI Express Controller Core. Eureka Technology’s rigorous validation process consists of four components: (1) PCI Express Configuration Test suite (PCIE-CV) published by PCI-SIG, (2) PCI Express Link and Transaction Protocol Test using industrial standard E2969A PCI Express Protocol Tester by Agilent Technologies, (3) demonstration system consisting of Rambus's PCI Express physical layer (PHY) cells, Eureka's PCI Express Controller Core, and software operating in Windows XP environment, and (4) interoperability test between Eureka’s PCI Express Controller Core and many PCI Express systems based on chipsets from various manufacturers.

Eureka’s PCI Express Controller Core is designed for both ASIC and FPGA implementations. The Controller Core includes the Transaction Layer, Data Link Layer and Physical Layer of the PCI Express Specification. It conforms to the latest 1.0a revision and it supports industrial standard PIPE interface for on-chip PHY core and stand-alone off-chip PHY devices.

"We are very pleased with the validation results and interoperability between our core and various systems and Rambus’s PCI Express PHY cells," said Simon Lau, President of Eureka Technology. "By building upon our experience on PCI and PCI-X standards, we are able to deliver the much higher performance of PCI Express technology to our customers quickly. The PCI Express IP Core once again demonstrates our commitment to bus interface technologies and continue investment in bringing state-of-the-art products to our customers."

With technology independent design methodologies, the PCI Express Controller Core can be implemented virtually in all ASIC and FPGA technologies available today. 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 other proven IP cores such as system controller and MemConnect™ memory controller.
