FPGA-based NVMe data storage solution

FPGA-based NVMe data storage solution

By eeNews Europe

The solution features Aldec’s TySOM embedded prototyping board, up to eight high-bandwidth, low latency FMC-NVMe daughter cards, and a reference design with source files and binaries.

FMC-NVMe has four Non-Volatile Memory express (NVMe) interfaces connected to a Microsemi PM8532 PCIe Switch. The switch gives a connection-to-carrier-card through the PCIe x8 GEN3 interface with a FMC connector. The daughter card supports up to eight deep board stacking, providing up to 32 accessible NVMe SSDs slots.

The reference design uses either Aldec’s TySOM-3A-ZU19EG or TySOM-3-ZU7EV embedded development board. Both boards use Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC technology for a high-performance application processor (APU) with DDR4 system memory controller and hardened configurable PCIe GEN3 blocks. These features allow the implementation of a rich-featured Root Port of PCIe Root Complex solution to meet the underlying physical layer requirements of the NVMe protocol.
