MLE Releases 10/25 Gig Ethernet NPAP for Intel Stratix 10 FPGAs

With great support from the Intel PSG Team Europe, MLE has ported the 10/25 Gigabit Ethernet Network Protocol Acceleration Platform (NPAP) based on the TCP/UDP/IP Network Protocol Accelerator from Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institute Berlin, Germany, to Intel's Stratix 10 Device Family. This lays the necessary foundation to perform TCP/UDP/IP protocol full acceleration for users of Intel's new Stratix 10 based FPGA Programmable Accelerator Cards (PAC) D-5005.


MLE Releases OP-TEE Free Open-Source Edition

Following a successful review by the Xilinx Security Center-of-Excellence, MLE now releases the OP-TEE Free Open-Source Edition for the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC and RFSoC devices from Xilinx (ZynqMP). OP-TEE is an open-source project under the Linaro Security Working Group (SWG) for the ARM Trusted Execution Environment (TEE). Team MLE volunteered and took responsibility for maintaining functions specific to ZynqMP.  Read more information on MLE’s offerings for Security and Trust. OP-TEE can be downloaded at


Xilinx Blog Features Vivado Build System from MLE

The automated Vivado Build System, open-sourced by MLE to increase FPGA design productivity, is featured in the Xilinx Blog. This collection of scripts facilitates Continuous Integration (CI), and ensures fully reproducible results later in the development and product lifecycle.


MLE Releases NVMe Streamer

MLE releases NVMe Streamer which is a so-called Full Accelerator NVMe host subsystem integrated into FPGAs. NVMe Streamer offloads the NVMe protocol into programmable logic and enables to stream data from FPGA blocks in and out of directly-attached NVMe SSDs.


US Patent 10,509,880 for Design Automation for Configurable Mixed-Signal Systems

Missing Link Electronics has been awarded another patent in the field of mixed-signal: US Patent 10,509,880 B2 was issued DEC 17 2019 and claims novel Electronic Design Automation (EDA) methods for Sigma-Delta Modulation in FPGA-based Mixed-Signal Systems enabling Analog FPGA I/O.



MLE Open-Sources Build System for Xilinx Vivado

To facilitate an FPGA Build Environment which can be automated, for example for Continuous Integration (CI), and which ensures fully reproducible results later in the development and product lifecycle, the Team at Missing Link Electronics has put together a collection of scripts. Currently focused on the Xilinx Vivado toolchain (Version 2016.4 or newer) and tested under Ubuntu Linux 16.04 LTS and 18.04 LTS, this scripted FPGA Build Environment has recently been made available at GitHub ( ) under open source Apache 2.0 license. 

Team MLE welcomes any feedback and contribution from the FPGA ecosystem!
