Serial RapidIO to TI 6482 Digital Signal Processor Reference Design

from Altera

Overview

The Serial RapidIO (SRIO) interoperability reference design provides an example interface connection between the Altera® RapidIO MegaCore® function and the Texas Instruments TMS320TCI6482 Digital Signal Processor. The reference design enables the evaluation of the SRIO MegaCore function for integration into an Altera FPGA.

In addition to demonstrating basic interoperability, the reference design includes link utilization measurement in all modes, at all SRIO data rates, and all supported packet sizes.

Features

  • Programs the SRIO MegaCore function to initiate write transaction types targeted to the TI 6482 Digital Signal Processor
  • Programs the SRIO MegaCore function to any Serial RapidIO MegaCore 1x or 4x lane, data rate, and supported packet size variant
  • Includes support for gathering statistics
  • Connects a Stratix® II GX EP2SGX130 device on a BittWare Inc. GX-AMC card to a Spectrum Digital, Inc. TI 6482 Digital Signal Processor Evaluation Module (EVM) which includes the Texas Instruments Code Composer Studio (CCS) software to program and monitor the TI 6482 processor
  • Step-by-step walk-through instructions and complete design files (including Quartus® II archive)

Demonstrated Altera Technology

  • Stratix II GX FPGAs
  • Altera Serial RapidIO MegaCore IP
