Reference Design - RD-8K5

V1.0 : 26th October 2016


Overview

The RD-8K5 provides a fully functional PCI Express Bridge interface with direct slave and DMA engine driven user interfaces, memory management interface and initial external IO interfaces for 40G Ethernet and SATA.

The reference design includes:

    -    Example "getting started" projects for Vivado IP Integrator.

    -    PCIe Backend IP core encrypted netlist, including high-performance scatter-gather DMA engines

    -    Board management and monitoring VHDL source code

    -    Comprehensive host device drivers for Linux and Windows 7

    -    Linux and Windows 7-64 bit edition API

    -    Bit-file reference design for Memory Access

    -    Reference design to demonstrate 10G Ethernet PHY connectivity

Also included is access to the Alpha Data Support download lounge for latest updates.

Note: RD-KU3 is not required if the intended for Xilinx SDAccel development.
