1.1. Arria® V GZ Avalon-ST Interface for PCIe Datasheet

Intel ® Arria® V GZ FPGAs include a configurable, hardened protocol stack for PCI Express® that is compliant with PCI Express Base Specification 2.1 or 3.0. The Hard IP for PCI Express using the Avalon Streaming (Avalon-ST) interface is the most flexible variant. However, this variant requires a thorough understanding of the PCIe® Protocol.
