1.1. Benefits of Using CvP

The CvP configuration scheme has the following advantages:
  • Reduces system costs by reducing the size of the local flash device used to store the periphery configuration data.
  • Improves security for the proprietary core bitstream. CvP ensures that the PCIe host can exclusively access the FPGA core image.
  • Provides a simpler software model for configuration. A smart host can use the PCIe protocol and the application topology to initialize and update the FPGA fabric.
  • Facilitates adaptable hardware acceleration.
