A Comprehensive Family of PCI Express based COTS Solutions


 

By combining our IP Cores with our hardware design expertise, IOxOS Technologies provides a comprehensive family of PCI Express based COTS solutions in the most popular industry form factors such as VME64x, VXI, PXI Express, PMC, XMC and FMC among others

Our COTS product line offers a modular, FPGA centric and obsolescent-proof system architecture which has its fundamentals in a complete range of complementary products:

 

 

FPGAs are at the core of almost all these products. To make the most of these high-performance programmable devices and enable the integration of custom applications, our COTS product line is powered by the TOSCA solution, an FPGA Design Kit developed by IOxOS Technologies which covers all the development path, from the software application to the FPGA user code.


Linux, Windows and VxWorks are supported by IOxOS Technologies Single Board Computers.

A Comprehensive set of IP Cores optimized to target any FPGA or Structured ASIC


 

The base of IOxOS Technologies modular system architecture is a proprietary IP Core library which implements a wide variety of functions to enhance every FPGA centric solution:

 

  • High-level functions: PCI Express bridges to several interfaces (VME64x, VXI)
  • Low-level functions: Intelligent DMA engines and memory controllers
  • Avionics data buses: ARINC 664, ARINC 429, MIL-STD-1553B and CAN
  • RTCA DO-254 compliant IP Cores for airborne safety critical applications

 

FPGA Design Kits for the Implementation of High-Performance Custom Applications


 

The most challenging issue FPGA designers face is the integration of their application with all the IP Cores necessary to implement a fully functional FPGA

To overcome this challenge, IOxOS Technologies released the TOSCA FPGA Design Kit solution, a comprehensive FPGA design environment which provides full visibility and facilitates the integration of the user application within a high-performance PCI Express switch centric architecture, offering:

 

  • A hardware platform independent solution
  • A Network on Chip (NoC) architecture based on a full-mesh non-blocking switch
  • VHDL source code fully available
  • Full support at Hardware, Firmware and Software levels
  • A drastical reduction of the development time, focusing on the user application
