For the Hard or Soft PCIe IP used by Altera, How can I control attributes in the TLP header ie- RO, IDO, Hint bits, BDF control, AEarlyWrResp control etc. I hope the answer isn't that I need to write the IP from scratch .... Thanks in advance, Bob.
Altera factory says to use Avalon-ST instead of Avalon_MM ... any ideas on this ? I believe I need to provide part of the PCIe stack with AVALON-ST which is much more work than I was figuring ... having said that .. if Avalon-ST is the only solution .. I will investigate and size it and make the call.Best Regards, Bob. PS: I'm attempting to provide some similar functions available in commercial PCIe Exerciser cards at a fraction of the price ... I know they use Altera FPGA's and will be successful if I can simply control the TLP attribute bits say from NIOS II code.
