Targeted specifically at complex, embedded military and telecommunications, networking applications, the 64B/66B FPGA IP core allows designers to choose the most appropriate FPGA solutions to meet their needs, from single or multiple vendors.
"In a complex system with mixed FPGAs, it is always difficult to find a turnkey solution which effectively manages communications using high speed transceiver links," noted Sylvain Neveu, ReflexCES co-founder and COO.
"With this new IP in our portfolio, engineers are assured interoperability between all leading FPGAs, whatever the performance of their backplanes and systems, from 1 to 14Gbps, and whatever the generic or configurable features incorporated," he added.
The new IP core offers a fully compliant implementation of the Xilinx Aurora 64B/66bB scalable, link-layer protocol for high-speed serial communication, and allows for communication between FPGAs through a backplane. Based on this open standard protocol used to transport data with higher connectivity performance for chip-to-chip and board-to-board architecture, the ReflexCES Aurora-like 64B/66B IP core allows designers to move data from point-to-point across 1 to 16 serial lanes at up to 14.1 Gbps.
The core features user flow control, native flow control, immediate and completion mode, as well as modules to convert interfaces to and from streaming Advanced eXtensible Interfaces (AXI). This low protocol overhead IP core offers customers minimal data rate transfer latency with minimal logic resources (900 equivalent logic cells for a 4 lane configuration in simplex mode) for cost effective implementation.
The ReflexCES Aurora-like 8B/10B and Aurora-like 64B/66B IP Cores are available with encrypted or VHDL source code license agreements, encrypted test-benches, reference designs and a user guide.
