I've got a dev.board from Digilent (XUPV2P, ) with an Xilinx Virtex-II Pro (XC2VP30, to be exact). I've been reading up and it seems that most say it's impossible to implement SerialATA with this, even with additional logic? My plan was to use this device as a "snoop-device":
- One connection to a PC motherboard
- One connection to a DVD/HDD
- Implement the ability to log traffic
- Implement correct forwarding between the two so that they both think everything is like if they were connected directly to eachother.
Is this really impossible with this FPGA, or is it possible with the right additional logic (I was thinking of connecting this additional logic to the SATA-ports on the devkit)?
In advance, thanks!
