SATA AHCI controller is a highly configurable core and implements the SATA Host bus adaptor that can be interfaced with standard third party SATA PHY. The core leverages design expertise from its high speed interconnect family of IP's including USB 3.0, SSIC, Unipro, UFS.
The SATA AHCI Controller core is carefully partitioned to support standard power management schemes which include extensive clock gating and multiple power wells for aggressive power savings when used in laptop and power-sensitive embedded systems.
The controller exposes a high performance system interface such as AXI/PCIe for use in servers and high end storage networks or an area optimized system interface such as AHB for use in embedded systems.
The controller's simple, configurable and modular architecture is independent of application logic, PHY designs, implementation tools and, most importantly, the target technology.
T2M allows the licensees to easily migrate among FPGA, Gate array and Standard cell technologies optimally.
