Targeted Reference Designs (TRDs) provide Xilinx designers with turn-key platforms to create FPGA based solutions in a wide variety of industries. This application note extends the Spartan-6 FPGA PCIe-DMA-DDR3-GbE TRD to support Aurora 8B/10B serial protocol. This application note builds on the Spartan-6 FPGA PCIe-DMA-DDR3-GbE TRD by extending it to connect to the Xilinx proprietary Aurora 8B/10B serial protocol. Aurora is a scalable, lightweight, link-layer protocol that is used to move data across point-to-point serial links. It provides a transparent interface to the physical serial links and supports both framing and streaming modes of operation. This application note uses Aurora in framing mode.
