Cardbus FPGA Development Platform (Spartan-3 400)

  • Type II (5mm height) card for custom application development
  • Typical sustained data throughputs are 100/40 Mbits/s (CardBus Transmit/Receive)
  • Xilinx Spartan-3 XC3S400-4 FPGA features 400K system gates including 288 Kbit of dual port memory and 16 dedicated 18x18 multipliers
  • 32MB SDRAM for use as elastic buffer
  • Development environment includes:
    • Windows driver (.sys and .inf files)
      VHDL top-level template code
      NGC components for CardBus and SDRAM controller
      API and associated .jar and .dll files
      C/C++ API and associated code examples
      Hardware schematics
  • Tools required (not provided):
    • Xilinx ISE with VHDL synthesis
      Java development environment, or
      C++ compiler
  • Supports multiple personalities and dynamic reconfiguration:
    • Up to 14 custom FPGA configurations can be stored in non-volatile flash memory.
      The selected configuration is automatically reloaded at power up or upon command within 0.4 seconds.
  • Graphical User Interface, the ComBlock Control Center, is used for remote monitoring and control over simple serial link. This includes loading the FPGA configuration file into flash

  • Interface compatible with other pre-programmed ComBlock modules via the standard 2-row, 40-pin 2mm connect
  • ComScope–enabled: key internal signals can be captured in real-time and displayed on a host computer
