Kintex UltraScale FPGA KCU105 Evaluation Kit KUCon-TRD02 Targeted Reference Design - Release Notes and Known Issues Master Answer Record

Description

This answer record contains the Release Notes and Known Issues for the Kintex UltraScale FPGA KCU105 Evaluation Kit KUCon-TRD02 Targeted Reference Design (TRD).

The purpose of this answer record is to help you to avoid running into issues when performing intended operations with the KUCon-TRD02 PCI Express Memory Mapped Data Plane Application.

Solution

The KUCon-TRD02 PCI Express Memory Mapped Data Plane Application TRD is developed on the Kintex UltraScale FPGA KCU105 Evaluation Kit, targeting the Kintex UltraScale XCKU040-2FFVA1156E FPGA.

The TRD demonstrates AXI Memory Mapped Data Plane operation where data can be moved between the Host system memory and the card memory (DDR4).

Also provided are Linux (64-bit Fedora 20) device drivers with a Java based Graphical User Interface for controlling and monitoring the TRD.

The primary components of the TRD are:

  • x8 GEN3 PCIe Endpoint
  • Northwest Logic Expresso AXI-PCIe Bridge
  • Northwest Logic Expresso DMA

Hardware Test Setup Requirements

The prerequisites to run and test the Base TRD are:

  • KCU105 Evaluation Kit with XCKU040-2FFVA1156E FPGA
  • USB cable, standard-A plug to micro-B plug
  • Power Supply: 100 VAC / 240 VAC input, 12 VDC 5.0A output
  • ATX power supply
  • Host computer with PCI Express slot, DVD drive, monitor, keyboard and mouse
  • Control computer required for running the Vivado Design Suite and configuring the FPGA (laptop or desktop with Vivado installed)

Software Requirements

The tools required to simulate KUCon-TRD02 are:

  • Vivado Design Suite 2014.4.1 or later
  • QuestaSim / ModelSim 10.3b
  • Fedora 20 Live DVD
