T2M PCI Express PCIe 3.0 Serdes PHY IP in 40LP

PCIe 3.0 Serdes PHY IP in 40LP

Description and Features

This PCIe 3.0 Base Specification-compliant Peripheral Component Interconnect Express Gen3 PHY supports the PIPE 4.3 interface standard. Due to the support of an extra PLL control, reference clock control, and inbuilt power gating control, low power consumption is accomplished. Additionally, because the low power mode option is customizable, the PHY is extensively useful for a variety of settings with diverse power consumption considerations. Utilizing a test bench created in Verilog HDL, NCVerilog simulation software is used to verify PCIe PHY operation.
