Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) and Altera Corp. have announced the availability of a PCI-SIG-compliant solution that aims to reduce the cost and accelerate the development of PCI Express-based systems. The solution suits video cards, data acquisition, test and network equipment, and various embedded applications. This offering includes TI's XIO1100 PCI Express x1 PHY chip, Altera's Cyclone II FPGAs and PCI Express x1 MegaCore intellectual property (IP) function.

TI and Altera began partnering in early 2005 to develop this PCI Express solution. It was approved by PCI SIG, the industry forum for developing PCI Express specifications and performing interoperability.

This solution builds upon TI's and Altera's existing portfolios of PCI Express offerings. TI offers the XIO1100 along with PCI Express-compliant products targeted for applications such as PC add-in cards, communications, storage, industrial, test equipment, servers and other embedded system applications. Altera provides FPGA solutions for a variety of x1, x4 and x8 PCI Express applications, including configurable PCI Express IP cores and development boards for endpoint, bridge, switch and root complex functionality.

Altera Cyclone II FPGAs are available in volume today. The TI XIO1100 PCI Express PHY is currently sampling with full production devices available in April. The Altera and TI PCI Express solution with a Cyclone II FPGA and XIO1100 PCI Express PHY will be available from Altera, TI and authorized distributors. Pricing will be under Rs.663.75 ($15) (EP2C20 device for Rs.420.38 ($9.50); XIO1100 PHY for Rs.243.38 ($5.50)) for volume orders of 500,000 units.
