Northwest Logic's integrated PCI core is specifically designed to enable you to implement a high-performance PCI system with no additional PCI logic design. The integrated PCI core accomplishes this by integrating Northwest Logic's PCI core with a high-performance back-end module. The integrated PCI core enables the maximum possible PCI throughput to be achieved through the use of independent FIFO interfaces: master write, target write, master read, and target read. The FIFO interfaces support multiple posted writes, delayed reads, and read pre-fetching operations. In addition, the FIFO interfaces enable PCI bus and local bus data transfers to occur simultaneously. The core is available in several versions including 32 or 32/64 bit, target-only or master/target, and peripheral or host. The integrated PCI core is provided with Northwest Logic's PCI-X/PCI testbench. Contact Northwest Logic for more information.
