The Integretek HyperLink FPGA core leverages the proven TI HyperLink technology connecting your FPGA design to a Texas Instruments C66X multi-core DSP at link rates up to 25 Gb/s. The Integretek HyperLink Core allows the creation of a user defined system which can communicate with remote TI Cx66 DSP devices via a high speed SERDES interface. Developers can choose either an industry standard AXI4 bus or DMA interface. The HyperLink IP is available in both a x4 lane configuration and low cost x1 lane configuration.


    Device Utilization and Performance

    The HyperLink protocol supports data rates up to 25Gbps. Actual data rates will depend on available transceiver speed and hardware implementation. Available HyperLink data rates in Gbps are as follows (lane/x4): 1.25/5 Gbps 3.125/12 Gbps 6.25/25 Gbps 10/40 Gbps (pending)

    Getting Started
