Enclustra’s FPGA Manager USB 2.0 solution is optimized for Intel (Altera) and Xilinx FPGAs and allows for easy and efficient data transfer between a host and a FPGA over a USB 2.0 interface.

The solution includes a host software library (DLL) 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. Streaming and memory-mapped accesses are supported.
