Northwest Logic announced the immediate availability of a high-performance, hardware-proven PCI Express® 2.0 solution for Xilinx’s Virtex®-5 FXT platform. The solution combines Northwest Logic’s full-featured PCI Express 2.0 Core (5Gbit/s), a high-performance, on-demand, multi-engine DMA Back-End Core, DMA Driver (Windows or Linux) and PCI Express GUI to provide a complete, pre-packaged PCI Express 2.0 solution. The solution enables high-performance, multi-DMA engine PCI Express 2.0 designs to be quickly developed for the Virtex-5FXT FPGAs.
Northwest Logic’s PCI Express Solution optionally includes high-performance DDR3/DDR2/DDR SDRAM Controller Cores. These cores are part of Northwest Logic’s Memory Interface Solution, which also includes AHB/AXI Interface, Multi-Port, Reorder, RMW, ECC, and Memory Test add-on cores. All cores are available for use with Virtex-5 FPGAs and ASICs.
Northwest Logic’s PCI Express 2.0 Solution is fully hardware validated using HiTech Global’s HTG-V5-PCIE-DDR3 board. The card is ideal as a PCI Express 2.0/DDR3 SDRAM Virtex-5FXT FPGA development and ASIC prototyping platform. This board is available for immediate purchase. A full Board Support Package is shipped with this board.
