Evaluation Method: Source Code

Technology: Interface Protocols: PCI Express

Arria Series: Arria V, Arria V SoC


AHCI PCIe SSD IP core (APS-IP) enables FPGA system to directly connect AHCI SSD without CPU support. Ultimate high speed storage application is now in your hands! APS-IP operating with Avalon-MM Hard IP for PCIe from Altera is ideal to access AHCI PCIe SSD without CPU and external memory such as DDR3 requirement. It is recommended to use in the application which require high capacity storage at very high-speed performance. Small size system can be also designed by M.2 storage which uses PCIe protocol standard. The IP core license includes the reference design for Altera FPGA boards. It is useful to shorten your development time. More information from here http://www.dgway.com/APS-IP_A_E.html
