Cyclone IV GX Transceiver Starter Kit - getting started with PCIe

Hi, 

 

I have this kit (dk-start-4cgx15) and would like to use it to test the PCIe hard core and develop a Linux PCIe driver.  

 

I downloaded the "PCI Express High Performance Reference Design" (PCIe_hiperf_c4gx.zip) and the documentation. 

 

According to the documentation it includes devilerables for; 

 

 

  • FPGA programming files for the Cyclone IV GX Transceiver Starter Kit for ×1 and ×4 Gen1 operation 

 

 

Looking through the projects provided these appear to be set up for a different board - most probably the dk-dev-4cgx150

 

Is there a version of the reference design projects which support my board as per the documentation? I note the the boards starter kit comes with a c4gx_hip_x1d.sof file in the demos directory which suggests this exists somewhere. 

 

Cheers, 

Andy
