FPGA Altera Intel IPs for PCIe 3.0 + FPGA cyclone V design tools

Hi,

My name is Ganapathi Francis Joseph , I have a couple of questions on Altera FPGA PCIExpress IP cores and Development SDK.

1. I did find from your web-site for Intel Intellectual property for PCI Express 3.0 Gen - in the link https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/products/intellectual-property/ip.html#interfac... PCI Express (PCIe) Core

from Northwest Logic for devices : Cyclone® V SoC, Arria® V SoC, Cyclone® IV, Stratix® V, Intel® Arria® 10 SoC, Stratix® IV, Intel® Stratix® 10, Cyclone® V, Arria® V, Intel® Arria® 10

Q: How do I license this IP from Intel or Northwest ?

Q: If I do have to license from Intel - what is the cost of this IP for PCI Express 3.0 Gen ? Also do you provide full source code ?

 

2. There are open-source IP from Intel for PCIe Gen 1.0 and 2.0 which exist in Qsys development tool as I garner from this link

 

https://fpgacloud.intel.com/devstore/platform/13.0/standard/pci-express-in-qsys-example-designs-cycl...

documentation for this :

https://fpgawiki.intel.com/wiki/PCI_Express_in_Qsys_Example_Designs

 

Q: Can I integrate this open source IP into the development environment of Intel for Altera FPGA ?

Q: The PCIe1.0 and 2.0 exists in Qsys , If I use Quartus Prime 17.0 ca I compile and use as such your open-source IP ( IP compiler user guide says , https://www.intel.co.jp/content/dam/altera-www/global/ja_JP/pdfs/literature/ug/ug_pci_express.pdf , I can compile Qsys in Quartus development environment ?

 

 

3. Intel Altera Cyclone V development environment , .

Q: Quartus development environmentr SDK , I garner there are two versions one free version and one verions to be licensed , what is the license cost of quartus SDK and what Intellectual properties comes along with this license ?

Q: If I use the free version of quartus development SDK does it contain all free IP tfrom Intel ?

 

regards

francis j
