Jungo Windrivers

Hi, 

 

I am using a PCIe Stratix II dev kit. This kit came with Jungo WinDrivers with a 30 day license. Do I really need these drivers?  

I am not sure how these drivers are going to help. If I can get away without using these driveres I would prefer that as the license is another couple thousand bucks. 

 

Thanks

Jungo is a company that provides software to help you create drivers for your hardware device. They basically create the driver for you and provide you with an API.  

You can of course write the driver yourself. On Linux, this is fairly straightforward. Windows tends to be slightly more convoluted. 

PCI Express is backwards compatible with PCI from a software standpoint so the rules for writing a PCI driver apply to PCI Express. PCI Express supports a few more features (like hotplugging) but you don't have to use those.
