To future-proof an FPGA-based PCI controller card, Mattson Thermal Products GmbH in Ulm, Germany, worked with Elemaster and Missing Link Electronics (MLE) to re-design the card for PCI Express (PCIe).
Using MLE’s PCIe Connectivity subsystem for Microchip PolarFire FPGA, the former PCI card implemented in Xilinx Spartan 2 FPGA could be replaced without changes to the operating system PCI/PCIe device drivers.
Mattson Technology, Inc. designs, manufactures, markets and globally supports semiconductor wafer processing equipment used in the fabrication of integrated circuits.
Microchip PolarFire FPGA deliver the industry’s lowest power at mid-range densities with exceptional security and reliability and are ideal for a wide range of applications such as industrial automation. MLE is a Premier Design Partner of the Microchip Ecosystem.
