PCI Express® version 2.0 is the latest serial protocol enabling designs for high-bandwidth communication applications. It is backed by Intel and formally adopted by multiple companies as an industry standard through PCI SIG standard body. The Virtex®-5 FPGA, with its scalability and flexibility, is the ideal platform to implement this emerging protocol, and it's the first to offer the FPGA-based x8 implementation.
