Streaming mode

Postby Guest » Mon Mar 12, 2018 5:28 pm

Our application requires ability to continuously stream data from a KCU105 board that has an A/D converter attached via an FMC connector. Does your solution work when the fpga is set up for streaming mode?

Thank you,

It's not clear what you mean with "streaming mode".

Anyhow, Xillybus is well suited for data acquisition applications. In essence, all you have to do is to write the data from the A/D converters into a plain FPGA FIFO, and connect the FIFO's other side to Xillybus' IP core.

And then, on the host side, you can use plain UNIX' "cat" or "dd" to copy the acquired data into a file (assuming that the disk is fast enough).
