NVMe Streaming

NVMe Streamer for High-Speed FPGA Data Acquisition & Recording

This Technical Brief is about FPGA high speed data streaming, explaining how to best record data that is received by an FPGA, for example from high-speed data acquisition, and that needs to be stored into an NVMe SSD (Non-Volatile Memory Express Solid-State Drive), after FPGA-based Data-in-Motion processing; or the opposite direction when data streams out of an SSD into an FPGA for Data-in-Motion processing.

Recording with NVMe SSDs

Sustained, High-Speed Data Recording with NVMe SSDs

MLE has been providing NVMe Streamer, an FPGA-based technology which enables users to directly stream onto NVM Express (NVMe) SSDs data to and from Programmable Logic (PL). The objective behind NVMe Streamer was to provide a solution for high speed data recording (and re-play) without any CPUs involved, either because your FPGA does not have an embedded CPU or because you are looking for a solution with deterministically high read/write bandwidth and performance scalability.

SATA Storage for Zynq

SATA SSD Solutions for ZYNQ

As of June 2014, MLE has released Zynq SSE (the SATA Storage Extension for Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC). Please visit MLEcorp.com/ZynqSSE for more information and how to order!

With decreasing cost of Solid-State Disks (SSD), data acquisition and logging, test and measurement, and other modern embedded systems applications can be enhanced with fast and cost-efficient off-the-shelf data storage. This Technical Brief discusses how to add Serial ATA (SATA) storage capability to such embedded systems implemented inside Xilinx Extensible Processing Platform ZYNQ running Open Source GNU/Linux.
