With a theoretical bandwidth of up to 625Mbytes per second, USB 3.0 (later renamed as USB 3.1 Gen 1) is a leading contender as an FPGA host interface. This large bandwidth and low latency can help improve FPGA-based data acquisition systems, accelerated computing, and test & measurement while maintaining a low BOM. Certain features available with off-the-shelf USB 3.0 solutions can offer side-band utilities such as FPGA configuration, board health monitoring with minimal added cost. This white paper is making a case for a complete FPGA host interface system using FTDI's USB 3.0 FIFO solutions."
