Implementing PCI Express Designs in Altera™ Cyclone™-IV FPGAs
Enterpoint is running a series of training events designed to take attendees through the process implementing a custom PCI Express design in an Altera™ Cyclone™-IV FPGA. The event consists of lecture session followed by a lab session where attendees get a hands session building a custom PCI Express design.
The lecture session will cover general aspects of implementing PCI Express designs. It will also examine the benefits, common problems and practical solutions to getting a custom PCIe design working in a Cyclone™-IV FPGA. This session will also cover how to verify and debug PICe designs and useful tools to these processes.
The lab part of the training day will use the knowledge gained in the lecture session and convert that into building a real design and programming that into a Enterpoint’s Cyclone™-IV based Raggedstone3 development board. Attendees will also get to control the resultant design in Linux based host PC though a simple driver and GUI.
Attendees will get to take away build materials, drivers and documentation used in their example design. They will also have the opportunity to purchase Raggedstone3 boards at discount allowing them to continue their learning and own custom design development.
