The solution includes an Aldec TySOM embedded prototyping board, up to eight high-bandwidth, low-latency FMC-NVMe daughter cards, and a reference design (including source files and binaries) allowing engineers to fast-track their projects.
The FMC-NVMe provides four Non-Volatile Memory express (NVMe) interfaces. These are connected to a Microsemi PM8532 PCIe Switch, which provides a connection-to-carrier-card via the PCIe x8 GEN3 interface using a standard FMC connector.
To make life easier for HPC application developers, Aldec has prepared a reference design that can be used with either its TySOM-3A-ZU19EG or TySOM-3-ZU7EV embedded development board. Both boards are based on Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC technology, which incorporates high-performance application processor (APU) with DDR4 system memory controller and hardened configurable PCIe GEN3 blocks in the programmable logic part. These features enable the boards to implement a rich-featured Root Port of PCIe Root Complex solution to meet the underlying physical layer requirements of the NVMe protocol.
