January 2, 2012 -- Elecard announces release of Elecard SATA Controller IP Core for communication between FPGA systems and external devices via SATA inteface.
Today, Elecard Devices CJSC, a leading developer of codecs and products for digital video, announced the release of Elecard SATA Host Link Layer GTP controller (SATA LL) IP Core, an HDL-based package that implements the SATA link layer for communication between systems designed using FPGA Xilinx Virtex-5 and external devices via the SATA interface.
The SATA LL IP core is the ideal product that can be applied in already existing RAID-controlled data storage and acquisition systems that require a high-speed and cost-efficient link layer solution that is fully compliant to the latest Serial ATA specification. The physical layer is implemented using Virtex-5 FPGA RocketIO GTP Transceiver, whereas other Xilinx devices such as Spartan-6 and Virtex-6 can also be applied.
