With the first prototypes on the way, it’s time to take a closer look at what exactly FPGA Drive is and how it can help you to develop new disruptive technologies with FPGAs and SSDs. Here’s what you need to know in 3 points:

  1. FPGA Drive enables you to connect a high-speed Solid State Drive (SSD) to an FPGA
  2. FPGA Drive delivers high-capacity, extreme-throughput non-volatile storage to FPGA development boards
  3. FPGA Drive connects a 4-lane PCI Express bus between your FPGA and SSD

The 3D rendered image shows the following key features:

  • 8-lane PCIe socket for connection to the PCIe edge connector of one of the Xilinx development boards
  • M2 (NGFF) socket for connection to the SSD
  • 12V power connector and switching power supply for generation of 3.3V
