3. High Level Description

The N3000 provides you with a rapid design methodology for creating complex FPGA and Intel® Xeon® networking applications. You are provided the following:
  • An Intel® certified board with Intel® Arria® 10 GT FPGA, PCIe* interfaces, external memories, board management controller and Ethernet network interface devices.
  • FPGA factory image design demonstrating all interfaces.
  • Software tools for running board diagnostics with FPGA factory image, performing FPGA remote update, and reading board sensors.
  • Internal FPGA Nios® II controller and firmware for Ethernet re-timer provisioning and board control functions. You must include this block in your design.
  • The FPGA design flow, which supports flexible Ethernet data flow configurations supporting your developed packet processing functions.

The Intel® supplied board, FPGA IP blocks and software allow you to focus on your value added functionality.
