“The rapid evolution of AI/ML and data-intensive workloads drives the continued evolution of data center architectures requiring ever higher levels of performance,” said Scott Houghton, General Manager of Interface. IP at Rambus. “The Rambus PCIe 6.0 interface subsystem supports the performance demands of next-generation data centers with class-leading latency, power, area, and security.”

The Rambus PCIe 6.0 interface subsystem offers data rates of up to 64 gigatransfers per second (GT/s) and has been fully optimized to meet the needs of advanced heterogeneous computing architectures. Within the subsystem, the PCIe controller has a Data Integrity and Encryption Engine (IDE) dedicated to protecting the PCIe links and the valuable data transferred over them. On the PHY side, full CXL 3.0 support is available to enable chip-level solutions for cache-coherent memory sharing, expansion, and pooling.

“PCIe is ubiquitous in the data center and CXL will become increasingly important as enterprises seek ever-increasing speeds and bandwidths to support higher levels of performance in next-generation applications,” said Shane Rau, research vice president, Computing Semiconductors at IDC. “As an increasing number of chip companies emerge to support new data center architectures, access to high-performance interface IP solutions will be critical to enabling the ecosystem.”

Key features of the Rambus PCIe 6.0 interface subsystem include:

  • Supports PCIe 6.0 specification, including 64 GT/s data rate and PAM4 signaling
  • Implements low-latency forward error correction (FEC) for link robustness
  • Supports fixed-size FLITs that enable high bandwidth efficiency
  • Backwards compatible with PCIe 5.0, 4.0 and 3.0/3.1
  • State-of-the-art security with an IDE engine (controller)
  • Supports CXL 3.0 for new usage patterns that optimize memory (PHY) resources
