NVMe-to-NVMe Bridge IP Core – IPC-NV171-BR

The IntelliProp NVMe Bridge utilizes the IntelliProp NVMe Host Accelerator Core and the IntelliProp NVMe Target Core to create an NVMe protocol bridge. The architecture implements a ‘sandbox’ area in the bridge so that IntelliProp customers may implement their own custom hardware or firmware in the bridge.  With this architecture, command submissions, completion notifications and data transmissions may be either passed through without interruption or intercepted for analysis or modification.

NVMe-to-NVMe Bridge IP Core Applications
The IPC-NV171-BR ‘sandbox’ provides a “bump in the wire” that allows the customer to insert customer specific algorithms such as:

  • High performance read/write caching
  • Data Deduplication
  • LBA Remapping
  • Namespace manipulation
  • Data encryption
  • Data compression
  • Endpoint aggregation

 

NVMe-to-NVMe Bridge IP Core Features

  • Fully compliant to the NVM Express 1.2.1 industry specification
  • Automated initialization process with PCIe Hard Block
  • Automated command submission and completion
  • Scalable I/O queue depth
  • Support for 256 outstanding I/O commands
  • Scalable data buffer size up to 1GB
  • Processor or State Machine driven interface
  • Submission queue command context error prevention
  • Support for block sizes from 512 byte to 16kB
  • Application layer (command based) interface with Processor interface
  • Verilog and VHDL wrappers

Functional Description

The IntelliProp NVMe Bridge, IPC-NV171-BR, utilizes the IntelliProp NVMe Host Accelerator Core and the IntelliProp NVMe Target Core to create an NVMe protocol bridge. The bridge is architected such that the command submissions, completion notifications and data transmissions may be either passed through without interruption or intercepted for analysis or modification. The architecture implements a ‘sandbox’ area in the bridge so that IntelliProp customers may implement their own custom hardware or firmware in the bridge.
