The LDS SATA RECORDER XV6 IP is a complete recorder system IP. It can be configured according the recording performance required and the quantity of the data to record. The data can be recorded in FAT32 or in RAW format. In FAT32 mode, the disks must be already formatted or can be formatted through the Ethernet link and a PC under windows or Linux (free river). The Ethernet link, when used, enables to download FAT32 files into your PC to process them later according user application. The ‘Generator_Checker’ block enables to check any recording error in the data flow.This block generates a counter which is written into disks and then readback and compared in order to detect any recording error. External data goes through this block. A User Interface on a Hyperterminal enables to configure all the recording session (recording size, file size, raid0 strip, number of disk, read directory, etc…) and enables to run a write and read performance test of the system using the ‘Generator_Checker’ block. It enables you to chek the performance of your systems, especially the disks. Netlist and VHDL source code format is available for ease of customization. The C source code is always provided. The customization can be done by Logic Design Solutions.
