FPGA development kit enables PCIe 4.0 designs
The kit's PCI-SIG-compliant development board allows engineers to develop and test PCI Express (PCIe) 4.0 designs using the onboard Agilex F-Series FPGA.
Providing a complete design environment with all hardware and software, the kit is also capable of evaluating SoC features and performance using a hard processor system (HPS).
The development kit is mounted with the Agilex F-Series FPGA with 1400 KLE in a 2486-ball BGA package.
It includes four DDR4 DIMM sockets and two DDR4 DIMM modules. The kit's HPS interface supports UART, Ethernet, an SD card socket, eMMC, and a Mictor connector.
It also features a PCIe x16 Gen 4 golden finger connected to P-Tile transceivers.
Software assets include design examples, board design files, documentation, and Intel Quartus Prime Pro Edition software.
Coming soon, the Agilex family of FPGAs and SoCs deliver customised solutions for data-centric business challenges in the network, embedded, and data centre markets.
The Agilex series relies on heterogeneous 3D system-in-package technology to integrate an FPGA fabric built on 10nm process technology.
Features include robust memory integration, hardened protocol support, 2nd generation Intel Hyperflex FPGA fabric, and a configurable DSP engine.
