Fair enough, looks like they’re basically just going to emulate the whole host side in software. Post as a guest Name. What packet size and transfer size did you use for throughput calculations? We’d like to start of quite simple. Inferred RAM and mux.

I would like to use a fpga board in order to send information that has been calculated to another computer with a pcie bus.

Are you planning to design and implement a PCIe device from scratch? You’ll also have to provide some method for higher-level software to access the configuration space of downstream devices and configure them appropriately, as well as provide a bridge from aotera CPU address space to PCI express operations so that system software can perform reads and writes on PCIe devices.

Thank you for that.

Written By eli on February oinux, Inferred RAM and mux. Correct me if I’m wrong: Written By harini on February 29th, I haven’t read the entire specification, nor do I have the Mindshare book that everyone recommends, but I think I have a reasonable grasp on the subject. Jamey Hicks 1, 1 11 The usage idea is simple: It contains all of the information that you would need to map in a PCIe device and create device files that user space programs can use.


If it’s a switch, then more config type 0 packets will be sent to set up the switch registers.

The base and limit registers and bus number registers are used to determine how to route TLPs. Would you please share the linux driver code as well as the FPGA verilog coding? It doesn’t apply for TLPs that are transiting the root port, anyway.

The Linux Device Drivers 3rd Edition is a good resource for this. It arrives as packets which you need to handle one by one with a state machine you develop. Written By eli on April 25th, Again, it would normally do this by writing all 1s and read back the value to determine the size it needs to allocate for each address range, right?

Written By Venice Lim on February 9th, The device-driver is designed to be architecture independent but PCIe communication has only been tested from x Something like this example design: Email Required, but never shown.

Configuration software accesses the function 0 configuration space and reads the header type field. Thank you very much, Alex. However, since its been created in an older version of Quartus, I can’t build it. Well, you could always download the correct version of quartus.

The transport is a PCI Express connection. Very little of that communication involves the device-driver, actually.
