The LDS SATA HOST DUAL_XV5 IP incorporates the Transport layer, the Link layer and the PHY layer on a Xilinx Virtex 5 FPGA. The LDS SATA HOST DUAL XV5 IP is compliant with Serial ATA II specification and signaling rate is 1.5Gbps and scalable to GEN 2. The LDS SATA HOST DUAL XV5 IP is fully synchronous with system frequency (Clock_sys) at 37.5MHz in case of GEN1 speed selection and 75MHz in case of GEN 2 speed selection. The VHDL source code format is available for ease of customization. The customization can be done by Logic Design Solutions and DO254 documentation is available on request.
