May 24, 2018 - IP-Maker introduced a new product line of NVMe Host IPs targeting data center applications:
IP main new features
This new product family provides more NVMe features for data center applications. The main new features are the ability to manage up to 256 queues with the Advanced NVMe Host IP, and multiple NVMe SSDs with the MultiRoot NVMe Host IP, where the limitation is the rootport number in the FPGA. On top of that, the two IPs support the NVMe vendor specific commands, which is an important feature in order to access the NVMe SSD with proprietary commands.
Easy integration and use
Such IPs are easy to integrate thanks to its standard interfaces, and easy to use thanks to its smart management: the integrated auto-init engine initializes the PCIe rootport & endpoint interfaces as well as the NVMe interfaces.
The optimized RTL technology delivers high performance and low power for FPGA-based storage systems, the IP uses only few percent of an FPGA to sustain 3GB/s with a Gen3x4 NVMe SSD, where it would require 3 cores running full time on a high-end CPU.
These IPs make possible the design of a new area of smart products based on FPGAs, like in-storage processing accelerator and NVMe driver offload.
