If one wanted to develop an FPGA-based hardware accelerator that could
attach to the average PC to process data stored in PC memory what
options are there available.
Decision factors are:
+ ease of use (dev kit, user's guide, examples)
+ ability to move data with minimal load on the host PC
+ scalability (i.e. ability to upsize RAM and FPGA gates)
+ ability to instantiate a 32 bit RISC (or equiv)
Someone recommended the TI & Altera Cyclone II PCIe dev board, which is
said to be available soon. Any other recommendations?
Also, what is the best way to move data between PC mem to FPGA? DMA?
What transfer rates should one realistically expect?
