Maximum Throughput Using FX2 (CY7C68013) GPIF Interface
Last Updated: June 13, 2011
What is the maximum sustainable transfer rate the FX2LP can obtain in GPIF transfer mode?
The GPIF controller is designed to operate at a maximum IFCLK rate of 48MHz. If the external interface method is 16-bit synchronous, then a burts transfer rate of 96MByte/sec can be achieved. However, the sustainable throughput will depend on a number of factors like host controller hardware and software perfomance as well as the host application being used.
Please look at the following knowledge base article for more information on measuring host interface bandwidth.
