XpressAGX for Altera ArriaGX

Product Category: 
Development Boards & Kits
Product Supported / Obsolete?: 

The XpressAGX design kit provides a complete environment for designs implementing high-speed serial interfaces in Altera’s Arria GX FPGAs. This development kit is built on a PCIe form-factor card and targets the development of designs utilizing PCI Express Gen1 (1.0a/1.1) as their main communication interface.

What's unique about our Development Kit?

* An unlimited and unrestricted “Protocore” license of both our industry proven XpressLite IP core; no time-bomb or tethered operation; you are free to configure, integrate, and implement our IP in your design as long as your design runs on a XpressAGX board
* Full support for Verilog only and VHDL only design flows
* A comprehensive event-driven, procedure-driven PCI Express® Testbench in both Verilog and VHDL.
* A complete Software Design Kit (SDK) with a full-featured license-free 32-bit and 64-bit Linux, and 32-bit Windows PCI Express® device driver; The SDK also includes an API with source code and example GUI applications also with source code.
* A portfolio of specialized daughtercards that fit within the board height and length, and with a combined width compliant to the PCI Express® Card Electromechanical Specification; Custom daughtercards can be designed and produced in short turn times.
* Fast and accurate, industry acclaimed technical support provided by the board and IP designers.
