This EVB board is designed for evaluating the AL460A HD-FIFO integrated chip. It has two embedded AL460A-7-PBF (or AL460A-13-PBF) chips operating in parallel, expanding the bus width to 32-bits. Control signals and data bus signals are available on two 50-pin connectors; one connector is reserved for write controls and the input data bus; the other one is for read controls and the output data bus. A separate adaptor board (HSMC interface) is available to the user for connecting the module directly to an Altera's Cyclone III FPGA Starter Kit for any necessary solution verification/ validation.
The AL460 chip is designed with a straightforward bus interface, reducing implementation and debugging efforts, and helping customers develop faster and more efficiently. This board is especially designed and optimized to be easily integrated as an add-on module on existing systems, significantly reducing interface engineering issues commonly found in retrofit efforts. This allows designers the luxury of being able to focus on core functionality and product quality.
