Altera Corp. and Genesys Logic Inc. announced the availability of their x4 PCI-SIG-compliant solution, which uses Altera's Stratix II FPGAs and PCI Express x4 MegaCore IP core, and Genesys Logic's GL9714 PCI Express x4 physical layer (PHY) chip. The solution is designed to help designers in developing PCI Express-based systems and provides a PCI-SIG-compliant solution with a migration path from FPGAs to structured ASIC devices.

The PCI Express solution is said to provide the bandwidth required for various test and medical, networking, storage, imaging, office automation and other embedded applications.

The tools to implement PCI Express in applications include configurable PCI Express IP cores and development boards for endpoint, bridge, switch and root complex functionality. Genesys Logic offers the GL9714 along with PCI Express-compliant products targeted for a variety of applications.

Altera Stratix II FPGAs are currently available in volume from authorized distributors. Volume prices in mid-2007 start at $25 for the EP2S15 device in 25,000 unit volumes. The Genesys Logic GL9714 PCI Express PHY is currently sampling with full production devices available in the third quarter of 2006. Pricing for the Genesys Logic GL9714 PCI Express PHY will be $20 for volumes of 25,000.
