Denali Software Inc. said it would market IBM's PCI Express design as a configurable IP core. In effect, IBM is making their intellectual property developed for internal use available to others.

Denali said at the Design Automation Conference that it will be selling and supporting application-specific configurations of the core through its own channels along with its PureSpec verification IP for PCI Express. Denali earlier this year announced it has developed tools for modeling, traffic generation, compliance checking, and interoperability analysis of PCI Express interfaces in chip designs.

The PCI Express architecture is a serial interconnect technology targeted at multiple market segments in the computing and communications industries. It supports chip-to-chip, board-to-board, and adapter solutions.

"Denali has been active in the PCI Express community as a member of technical and communications workgroups within PCI-SIG," Tony Pierce, PCI-SIG chairman, said in a statement. "This announcement represents a significant new commitment from both Denali and IBM to promote and enable PCI Express designs in the industry."

"Denali is an active member of the Intel Developer Network for PCI Express, and we support their efforts to deliver value-added IP cores to further energize and enable PCI Express-based designs," said Jim Pappas, director of initiative marketing, Intel Enterprise Platform Group.

"This is definitely a big win for the PCI Express design community," added Denali President Sanjay Srivastava. "It will have a dramatic impact on the way PCI Express interfaces are developed from now onwards."
