The IIE-PCI Development Platform board is a low cost PCI device card with a programmable logic chip (Altera ACEX), dynamic ram, and expansion capabilities.

The main purpose of the IIE-PCI board is to test PCI designs in a educational environment. Cost was a primary concern. The fabrication cost for the prototype board was U$S 330, if 10 boards are made, the cost will drop to U$S 230 per unit.

- (english version) (google autotranslation)

The IIE-PCI Development Platform is part of a final degree project in Electrical Engineering in the Universidad del la República - Facultad de Ingeniería - Uruguay.
The whole project contains the following parts:
- IEE-PCI board.
- Target PCI Core toolkit (written in VHDL).
- Linux device driver toolkit for the core and the device card.


- PCI 32 bit, 3.3V and 5V compatible
- 128Mbit SDRAM memory on-board
- Expansion header
- 31 general propouse signals
- Clock source: on-board crystal, PCI conector. Jumper selectable.
- PLL for clock regeneration and frequency multiplication. Jumper selectable.
- FPGA configuration using (jumper selectable):
- on-board ALTERA EPC2 EPROM
- JTAG header through ALTERA ByteBlasterMV
- External power connector


- two prototype assembled and fully functional
- boards are being used at under-graduate (courses) in our University.
- schematics, gerber, bill of materials available at (Downloads) section
- documentation, user manual and other information available at http://opencores.orgproject,iiepci,links (Links) section
