NVMe IP Core

The Design Gateway Nonvolatile Memory Express (NVMe) Host Controller IP tightly integrates with the Agilex™ FPGA’s P-Tile PCIe Gen4 Root Port Hard IP reducing the logic needed to less than 4200 ALMs and requires only 256Kbytes of on-FPGA SRAM, thereby, eliminating the need for external DDR memory. Depending on the NVMe SSD’s performance, this IP core can achieve over 6 GBytes/second in single-channel PCIe Gen4 operation and over 21 GBytes/second in quad-channel RAID0 operation without processor intervention. Utilizing the Design Gateway Nonvolatile Memory Express (NVMe) controller IP core is a low risk since it has been verified in numerous Intel FPGA designs. 

Key Features:

  • Direct access to Nonvolatile Memory Express (NVMe) PCIe Gen4 SSD with no CPU needed
  • 256KB of on-FPGA memory with no external DDR memory required
  • Very low FPGA resources utilization, less than 4200 ALMs
  • 21.5GB/s+ data read and 21.7GB/s+ data write in quad-channel RAID0 configuration
  • Proven compatibility with Intel® FPGAs
