Newsletter - August 2021

Dear friends of MicroTCA,

Most of our recently developed AMC® boards like the DAMC-FMC2ZUP or the DAMC-FMC1Z7IO are based on modern Xilinx® SoC devices. To implement the PCI Express® endpoint and the corresponding logic (register access and DMA) we use Xilinx® XDMA.

To provide seamless integration between all our boards and Linux®-based computers, we have packaged the XDMA driver as a Dynamic Kernel Module Support (DMKS) package under a permissive open-source license.

The source code for the package can be found on our GitHub page.

Once installed, the package provides a kernel module (xdma.ko) and some command line utilities (xdma-reg-rw, xdma-dma-from-device, xdma-dma-to-device) which can be easily integrated into your Python or C++ based application software.
