Covers IP Core and IP Core Evaluation Packages
A white paper by Paul Grunwald covers the criteria important to your make-versus-buy decision.
Evaluation packages are convenient educational tools for familiarization and basic experimentation with the ARINC 818 protocol. (They are not intended for production development.) Great River offers packages, including the development board and FPGA listed, for these Xilinx FPGA families:
|Spartan 6||SP605||XC6SLX45T-FGG484-3C||$ 7,000|
Each package is available with ARINC 818 links at 2.125 or 3.1875 Gb/s. All come with a compatible Matrix PCIe card and a working reference design for setting up the development configuration.
The Matrix card delivers:
Matrix PCIe base software is included on a CD-ROM:
The ARINC 818 IP core for your particular FPGA is also on the CD-ROM and includes:
