Mini PCIe Fpga IN-OUT processor
Intel (Altera) FPGA on mini PCIE card allows Embedded PC I/O Expansion
Mini PCIe port with SRAM, a smart I/O front end
A mini PCIE Smart I/O expander to be used on embedded PC able
The mini PCIe Smart expander has been thought to make available a smart PCI express I/O able to be a powerful front end on embedded PC. It can host at same time the NIOS microcontroller, the Scatter Gather DMA (SGDMA) and hardwired logic with DSP blocks.
Its use allows the interfacing of a lots of sensors, converters and actuators with high performance, both in interrupt response, both when is required a high speed data transfer to/from main memory but also when the data must be processed by DSP or NIOS with its custom instructions before that has been sent to the host cpu.
The Mini PCIe smart I/O front end is a sandwich of a mini PCIe fpga board, that can be host a EP4CGX15BF14C7N or a EP4CGX30BF14C6N FPGA, and 2 MBytes doughter board.
