Kintex UltraScale FPGA KCU105 Evaluation Kit KUCon-TRD03 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-TRD03 Targeted Reference Design (TRD).  

The purpose of this answer record is to help you to avoid running into issues when performing intended operations with KUCon-TRD03 PCI Express Streaming Data Plane Applications.

Solution

The KUCon-TRD03 PCI Express Streaming Data Plane Application TRD is developed on the Kintex UltraScale FPGA KCU105 Evaluation Kit, targeting the Kintex UltraScale XCKU040-2FFVA1156E FPGA.

The TRD demonstrates an AXI streaming data plane application using a PCI Express Endpoint block in a x8 Gen2 configuration through the use of high performance Expresso DMA from Northwest Logic.

The primary components of the TRD are:

  • Integrated Endpoint block for PCI Express
  • Northwest Logic Expresso DMA
  • 2x10G Ethernet

 

Hardware Test Setup Requirements

The prerequisites required to run and test the Base TRD are:

  • KCU105 Evaluation Kit with XCKU040-2FFVA1156E FPGA
  • Design files available from Xilinx.com
  • USB cable, standard-A plug to micro-B plug (Digilent cable)
  • ATX power supply adapter
  • 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-TRD03 are:

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