Figure 1 shows the block diagram for the Northwest Logic PCI-X Core.

Northwest Logic's PCI-X Core is specifically designed to be easy to use:

  • User is shielded from the complexities and timing issues associated with the PCI-X bus
  • Control interface has consistent timing and function over all modes of operation
  • Data interface connects directly to first-in-first-out (FIFO) interfaces
  • Complete error-handling support
  • Push-button timing achieved with minimal routing constraints
  • High-performance, easy-to-use core
  • Push-button timing achieved with minimal routing constraints
  • Support for 133/66 MHz PCI-X / PCI, 32- and 64-bit, master/target operation
  • Available in PCI-X only or PCI-X / PCI configurations
  • Available in host and peripheral versions
  • Minimal size
  • Multi-function support
  • Highly parameterized core permits personalization and reduction of unused logic
  • Optional scatter-gather direct memory access (DMA) module available
  • Core source code available
  • Customization and integration services available
