NVMe IP corePCIeSSD can directy connect to FPGA!!

NVMe-IP

NVMe IP core is standalone NVMe Host Controller with built-in optimized PCIe Bridge and Internal Memory Buffer, designed to handle NVMe Protocol without need CPU/OS and External DDR memory. It’s recommended for the application which requires high performance, high storage capacity, very compact system size and easily to support multiple NVMe SSDs. This IP core license includes the reference design for Intel® FPGA boards. It helps you to reduce development time and cost.


Features

  • Implement application layer to access NVMe PCIe SSD without CPU and external memory (DDR)
  • Simple user interface by dgIF typeS
  • Direct connect to Avalon-ST Hard IP for PCI Express from Intel by using 128-bit bus interface
  • Include 256 Kbyte RAM to be data buffer
  • Support 6 commands, i.e. IDENTIFY, WRITE, READ, Shutdown, SMART, and Flush
  • Support NVMe device
    • Base Class Code 01h (mass storage), Sub Class code 08h (Non-volatile), Programming Interface 02h (NVMHCI)
    • MPSMIN (Memory Page Size Minimum): 0 (4Kbyte)
    • MDTS (Maximum Data Transfer Size): 0 (no limitation) or at least 5 (128 Kbyte)
    • LBA unit: 512 byte or 4096 byte
  • exFAT & FAT32 file system management without CPU usage (Option)
  • Support PCIe Switch (Customize support, please ask us)
  • Reference design with AB16-PCIeXOVR adapter board available on Intel® FPGA boards and ReFLEX CES Alaric Instant-DevKit.
    Available on Mouser
