Systems announces the availability of expressXG , an FPGA framework that accelerates customers' ability to tackle challenging system communication problems. The framework gives customers the tools to embed their own applications directly into AdvancedIO's 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) interfaces. The applications quickly benefit from the line-rate performance capability of FPGAs by leveraging AdvancedIO's expertise implementing Ethernet communications for demanding real-time systems.
expressXG is a framework of FPGA firmware and host software that abstracts the details of Ethernet protocols and interfaces such as 10GbE controllers, memory controllers, and host fabric interfaces, thereby reducing the development effort and schedule for designers to implement custom algorithms. The removal of hardware dependencies also enables future code portability.
