HOST controller IP to control SATA by All Hardware Logic

SATA Host IP Core operating with DG SATA-IP and SATA PHY is ideal for the storage system which has not internal CPU to control SATA Device access. It is recommended to use in very high-speed data recording system, and RAID controller.

Support AHCI to be able to boot up Linux from SoC Devices


SATA+AHCI Evaluation Demo on Arria 10 SoC
SATA AHCI IP core operating with SATA IP Core is suitable for the system which has the processor running on OS and needs to have SATA device to be the system storage. By using AHCI driver to access AHCI IP, the system can access SATA device with full features and high speed performance. Both embedded CPU like ARM on SoC platform or CPU on PC can be used to be the processor for AHCI IP, so the IP can be applied for embedded storage system, RAID application, high-speed and large capacity data acquisition system.
The demo video clip is available on youtube.







Support exFAT file system

Support basic commands
(fm, dir, cd, mk,
nw, rd, dl, help)
SATA-IP core supports exFAT file system. Your system can manage data as files and share files with PC. It is effective and easy for you to use data and apply for any applications. Design Gateway offer special price for exFAT file system reference design for SATA-IP customers.
Before purchasing, you can evaluate SATA-IP core + exFAT file system on ArriaV GX.

For the evaluation, Extension adaptor board is necessary.(AB12-HSMCRAID). Please ask us


RAID System with SATA-IPcore

HSMC-SATA adaptor boardfor
for Altera FPGA development kit
By several SATA-IPcore implementation on FPGA, you can achieve RAID system with SerialATA HDD/SSD. This IPcore makes simple wiring on a board and reducing FPGA I/O pins. It is best solution for RAID system. Design Gateway also provide SATA extension adaptor board for Altera FPGA development kit. Moreover Design Gateway have RAID technologies (RAID0,RAID1,RAID5). About integration of SATA-IPcore with RAID, please contact us.
