May 16, 2012 -- PLDA today announced the 3rd-generation Linux and Windows device drivers for its PCI Express intellectual property cores and FPGA design kits. Redesigned from the ground up with an architecture optimized for latency, the device drivers support Linux 32-bit and 64-bit distributions as well as Windows XP, Windows 7 32-bit and Windows 7 64-bit and provide a common API, allowing seamless switching between both Linux and Windows operating systems. The C-software API provided with the device drivers includes both a generic PCIe API as well as a PLDA-specific API that leverage the advanced features of PLDA's PCIe and DMA IP cores.
The device drivers are provided as compiled binaries with every PLDA PCI Express IP core and FPGA design kit. IP licensees can use the device drivers with their own PCIe hardware, and also have the option to purchase source code.
The PLDA Linux and Windows Drivers for PCIe are available now from PLDA with every PCIe IP core and FPGA design kit.
