Reference Designs Enable Virtex-/Spartan-6 FPGA PCIe Connectivity

The Spartan-6 and Virtex-6 FPGA connectivity targeted reference designs are PCI Express compliant and promise fast deployment of end-product systems. Both designs provide out-of-the-box working PCIe connectivity solutions. The Spartan-6 FPGA design has passed PCI-SIG compliance and interoperability testing for PCIe 1.1 single-lane configuration with on-chip GTP serial transceivers running at 2.5 Gb/s. The Virtex-6 FPGA design has passed PCI-SIG compliance and interoperability testing for PCIe 2.0 x4-lane Gen2 configuration with the GTX Serial transceivers running at 5 Gb/s. The PCIe DMA-Gigabit Ethernet targeted reference design is integrated and included with the Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA Connectivity Kit for $1,995. Price for the Virtex-6 FPGA Connectivity Kit is $2,995.
