Lionic selects PLDA IP for their new Generation ePavis II Security Solution



Easy integration and robust functionality of the PLDA PCI Express® IP provides the high-performance and cost-effective PCI Express interface required for Lionic’s design success

November 16, 2009 – PLDA, the industry leader in the high-speed bus IP market, announced that Lionic will launch their ePavis II robust PCI Express-based solution, incorporating PLDA’s XpressRich2 PCI Express ASIC IP. Lionic, a leading provider of high performance connectivity solutions for consumer, industrial and computing applications, used the PLDA XpressRich2 PCI Express IP to provide PCI Express interconnect within their host controller, helping to enable throughput of up to 2.5 Gbps.

According to Roger Chien, CTO at Lionic, “LIONIC first introduced the ePavis security content inspection co-processor in Nov. 2005 with the PLDA PCI core embedded and the product was successfully adopted in the small business UTM market. Because we found the silicon IP from PLDA to be robust and easy to integrate, we chose to adopt their PCI Express IP core in new generation ePavis II solution, which will provide double the performance at similar cost to the customer. The ePavis II solution will be available in July 2010”.

"Lionic products consistently provide a high speed/ cost efficient solution with minimal memory and signature maintenance requirements," commented Jean-Yves Brena, CEO of PLDA, "Across our entire interconnect product line, which includes PCI Express, USB3 and AMBA products, we strive to deliver the solid design and comprehensive support required by leading companies like Lionic.”
