Reflex CES Introduces Industry's First Aurora-Like IP Core, Offers Freedom to Choose Best FPGA Technology by Enabling Interoperability Between Leading FPGA Platforms
PARIS and EVRY, FRANCE, Dec 12, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Reflex CES, a provider of custom embedded and complex systems, today
announced the industry's first release of the Reflex CES Aurora-like
IP Core based on Altera FPGAs. The core enables interoperability
between Xilinx Virtex-6 LXT and Altera Stratix IV and Stratix V GX
The Reflex CES Aurora-like IP Core offers the freedom to choose the
best FPGA technology and accelerate time to market for embedded
military and telecommunications/networking applications. It offers a
fully compliant implementation of the Xilinx Aurora 8B/10B scalable,
link-layer protocol for high-speed serial communication, and allows
for communication between FPGAs through a backplane.
"With our Reflex CES Aurora-like IP Core designers can easily migrate
to new FPGA families with minimum risks, reuse their previous
designs, and choose the best FPGA technology for their boards and
systems using the Aurora protocol," noted Sylvain Neveu, Reflex CES
co-founder and COO.
Based on the Aurora 8B/10B, an open standard protocol used to
transport data with higher connectivity performance for chip-to-chip
and board-to-board architecture, the Reflex CES Aurora-like IP Core
allows designers to move data from point-to-point across one to
sixteen serial lanes at 3.125 Gbps. The core offers user flow
control, native flow control, immediate and completion mode, and
modules to convert interfaces to and from streaming Advanced
eXtensible Interfaces (AXI). This low protocol overhead IP core
offers customers minimal data rate transfer latency with minimal
logic resources -- less than 900 equivalent logic cells for a 1 lane
configuration -- for cost effective implementation.
The Reflex CES Aurora-like 8B/10B IP Core is available now with VHDL
source code, test-benches, a reference design and user guide. Reflex
CES plans to ship an Aurora-like IP Core that supports communication
between FPGAs with a 64B/66B protocol at 10 Gbps.
