PCIe Gen2 x4 DMA  

CategoryDesign Example
NamePCIe Gen2 x4 DMA
DescriptionThe design includes a high-performance DMA with an Avalon-MM interface that connects to the PCI Express Hard IP core. It transfers data either between on- chip memory and system memory or external memory and system memory. The reference design includes Linux software drivers that set up the DMA transfer. You can also use the software driver to measure and display the performance achieved for the transfers. This reference design allows you to evaluate the performance of the PCI Express protocol in using the Avalon-MM interface.

Installation Package

Note: After downloading the design example, you must prepare the design template. The file you downloaded is of the form of a <project>.par file which contains a compressed version of your design files (similar to a .qar file) and metadata describing the project. The combination of this information is what constitutes a <project>.par file. In releases 16.0 or newer, you can simply double click on the <project>.par file and Quartus will launch that project.

The second means to bring up the project template is through the New Project Wizard (File -> New Project Wizard). After entering the project name and folder on the first panel, the second panel will ask you to specify an empty project or project template. Select project template. You will see a list of Design Templates projects that you have loaded prior as well as various "Baseline Pinout Designs" that contain the pinout and settings for a variety of development kits. If you don't see your design template in the list, click on the link that states install the Design Templates circled below:

Browse to the <project>.par file you downloaded, click next, followed by Finish, and your design template will be installed and displayed in the Project Navigator pane in Quartus.

Note: When a design is stored in the Design Store as a design template, it has been previously regression tested against the stated version of Quartus software. The regression ensures the design template passes analysis/synthesis/fitting/assembly steps in the Quartus design flow.

At the command-line, type the following command:

quartus_sh --platform_install –package <project directory>/Cyclone10GX_PCIeGen2x4_DMA_18_0.par

Once the process completes, then type:

quartus_sh --platform –name Cyclone10GX_PCIeGen2x4_DMA_18_0
