|KCL signs the UK Distribution Agreement with LDS to supply the LDS_Sata_Recorder_XV6 IP
Kane Computing Ltd (KCL) have signed an exclusive UK Distribution Agreement with Logic Design Solutions to sell their FPGA based recorder IP.
Logic Design Solutions supply software to support recording of data on SATA disk systems, up to 6G running on Xilinx Virtex 6 FPGAs.
The LDS_SATA_RECORDER_XV6 IP is a complete recorder system Software Solution (IP). It can be configured according to the recording performance required and the quantity of the data to record. The LDS_SATA_RECORDER_XV6 IP is available only on Xilinx Virtex 6 LXT/SXT FPGA. This IP can be customised according to specific needs (application specific requirement). Any other pre-designed functions can be integrated into the FPGA. FPGA density and I/O requirements can be defined according to the customer specification.
Netlist and VHDL source code format is available for ease of customisation. The C source code is always provided. Customisation can be done by Logic Design Solutions.
The LDS_SATA_RECORDER_XV6 IP has been validated on Xilinx ML605 and XM104 boards and also a custom board, the MSE-RECORDER-XV6, originally designed for ONERA, “the French Aerospace Lab” and is available from LDS/KCL as a complete system with or without disks.
The MSE-RECORDER-XV6 features a Xilinx Virtex 6 LX36ST-2 or-3 FPGA, eight SATA III (6Gb/s), ethernet 10G SFP+ and 1G and 1.5GB DDR3. In addition to LDS_SATA_RECORDER_XV6 IP, LDS also licence SATA HOST IP and SATA DEVICE IP.
