Enclustra’s FPGA Manager Ethernet solution allows for easy and efficient data transfer between a host and a FPGA over an Ethernet interface.

The solution includes a host software library (a Windows DLL or Linux static library), and a suitable IP core for the FPGA. The user host application can communicate with the FPGA through a simple API consisting of simple read/write data commands hiding the complexity of the underlying protocols. Both streaming and memory-mapped access are supported.



  • High-throughput, plug & play Ethernet interface
  • Up to 120 MByte/sec data transfer rate
  • Runs on Windows and Linux
  • Supports C, C++ and C# user applications
  • No recurring license fees
  • Vendor-independent
