Hi,

 

May I know which driver you are looking for?

Do you make connection to on chip ram/rom through dma in Platform Designer?

If not, could you tell more detail about the driver?

 

Thanks

Hello, Thank you for your reply. Do you have any experience with the DMA core described here ? https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/ug/ug_pcie_avmm_dma.pdf I have to develop a windows driver for it. Do you know if ALTERA provides reference source code ? According to the PDF, maximum number of descriptors is 128. Can you confirm ? What should we do in case we need more ? Best regards, Zvika

Hie Zvlka,

 

Please check my replies to your questions below:

 

  1. Do you know if ALTERA provides reference source code ? - No the reference source code is encrypted. Its only available for usage with Intel FPGA.
  2. 2. According to the PDF, maximum number of descriptors is 128. Can you confirm ? Yes it is.
  3. What should we do in case we need more ? You will need to use external descriptor using external memory. The information is available in the following user guide:
