The IntelliProp IPC-NV163A-DT is an industry standard NVMe Target IP core that allows customers to build high speed NVMe (PCIe) storage devices. The IPC-NV163A-DT provides a hardware accelerated queue management interface for NVMe commands and completions as well as provides the NVMe controller register interface for host communication and controller management. The NVMe Target Core is available for integration into Intel FPGA designs to provide an industry compliant NVMe interface at PCIe Gen3, Gen2 or Gen1 speeds. Target applications include: • NVMe SSD Controllers • NVMe fabric devices • NVMe Bridge Systems


  • Fully compliant to the NVM Express 1.3 industry specification
  • Compatible with 3rd party PCIe Endpoints
  • Application layer (command based) interface with Processor interfac
  • Processor interface for register access
  • Automated PCIe interrupt generation on posting of completions
