    PCIe

    Bharath_Bhushan_H

      Hello ,

      As Galileo Gen 2 Development Board has only  one PCIe

      I think this is root complex

        So if I want to have multiple end points ; how can I connect and configure

          Hello Bharath_Bhushan_H,

           

          I'm not sure what you mean. What exactly do you mean by "...I want to have multiple end points ; how can I connect and configure…"?

            Hello Peter,

             

            I am actually a VLSI background person, I was involved in development and validating the PCIe Gen 2 and USB 3.0 for a customer and I am involved in validating of USB 3.1.   

            So I used the words “root complex” “end points” 

             

            Have a passion to work on IoT

             

            Actually I mean “end point” for multiple PCIe slots,

            for example if we consider a master-salve architecture (even though PCIe is not) root complex will be a master which is connected to processor core and end points are slave which is use to connect peripherals .

            So my requirement is to have multiple PCIe slots so that I can connect WiFi, modem  and I have some custom protocols with PCIe as interface.

             

            Hope I am more clear now.

             

            Thanks and regards

              The PCIe port of the Galileo was originally intended to be used with one card, so that could prove difficult. Nevertheless, you might be able to find a Mini PCI-e multiplier Hub that has a driver available for Linux; if you are able to include it in the Yocto image, then maybe you might be able to make it work. However, this is just a suggestion, as we have not tested or validated any multiplier hub card, you would have to try it yourself.
