The 64-bit PCI target megafunction is designed for interfacing user logic with a 64-bit PCI bus. This megafunction is a very compact design that minimizes logic cell count while offering double the bandwidth performance of a 64-bit bus system. An internal write buffer is included in this design to support zero-wait state burst transfer and a very long burst length. The megafunction can transfer data up to 266 Mbytes per second. Both 64-bit and 32-bit data transfer rates are supported by this megafunction. All compliant configuration registers are included in the megafunction and all configuration accesses are processed automatically. The megafunction is available in Intel® Hardware Description Language (HDL), Verilog HDL, VHDL, and netlist format. Megafunction sizes vary with features and customization. Contact Eureka Technology for a logic cell count that is based on user specifications.
