Cadence adds 12Gbps SAS and NVM Express verification IP to its VIP catalog

Today, Cadence announced the addition of two storage-oriented verification IP products: 12Gbps SAS and NVM Express (NVMe). SAS is currently the interface of choice for enterprise-class hard disk drives and 12Gbps is the next click on the interface-speed dial. NVMe is an adaptation of the PCIe interface specifically for solid-state disks. (See “Watch out SSDs, here comes the NVM Express!”) Both interface standards will become important in the cloud-centric future of the Internet and SoC designers are already thinking about chips that will employ one or both of these leading-edge standards.
