NVMe-IP

NVMe IP core is standalone NVMe Host Controller with built-in optimized PCIe Bridge and Internal Memory Buffer, designed to handle NVMe Protocol without need CPU/OS and External DDR memory. It’s recommended for the application which requires high performance, high storage capacity, very compact system size and easily to support multiple NVMe SSDs.

NVMeG3 IP including PCIe Gen3 Soft IP inside enable the NVMe SSD interface for non-embedded PCIe Gen3 Hard IP Devices. Break the barriers of NVMe interface, Allow to build multi-channel RAID system with very high performance and lowest possible FPGA resources consumption. Learn more about NVMeG3 IP
This IP core license includes the reference design for Intel® FPGA boards. It helps you to reduce development time and cost.

raNVMe-IP (Random Access) is the new generation of NVMe-IP series which is intentionally optimized for random access and low latency time. raNVMe-IP can achieve more than 500K IOPS for random write access on high performance NVMe SSD without CPU intervention. Ideal for the application which requires multiple access to NVMe SSD with best performance. Learn more about raNVMe IP

muNVMe-IP (Multi User) is pure hardware logic solutions for very high throughput, multiple data streaming access to NVMe SSD simultaneously without CPU. Simplify your system complexity and maximize performance.Learn more about muNVMe IP

rmNVMe-IP (Random Access & Multi User)is very high performance NVMe Host Controller which is highly optimized for high-IOPS random access applications. rmNVMe-IP supports multiple user interfaces, each user can simultaneously read/write to a single NVMe SSD at the same time.Learn more about rmNVMe IP
