Miniaturized peripheral component interconnect express slots have
become extremely common in the last few years, especially among users
of commercial and industrial technology. Until recently, however,
most parts had to be purchased off the shelf unless someone wanted to
redesign the bus itself. Few small businesses wanted to do this kind
of work, which meant that most were unable to invest in sophisticated
solutions that used commodity PC technology.
A group of engineers
in the greater Rolling Meadows area have developed
PCIe FPGA cards that can each be programmed to match
the needs of a particular use case. This provides the functionality
of a custom-made part without driving up manufacturing costs. Each
card can more or less be made to the same exact specifications, which
are then altered using only software. Computer programming code is
far more flexible than hardware is, because you can change it on the
fly. An alteration to a particular line of code doesn’t normally
require any hardware modifications to get going.
That means that a
laboratory can order a mini PCIe FPGA that matches their exact
requirements without having to deal with the long lead times that are
usually associated with custom manufacturing workflows. Any sort of
shipment is going to take time to get to its final destination, but
these parts should arrive far more quickly than those that have to go
through some sort of complicated testing process.
