BittWorks II tools provide drivers, libraries, utilities, and example projects to make your software and FPGA development easier and more efficient.
The BittWorks II Toolkit is a suite of development tools for BittWare’s FPGA-based hardware that serves as the main interface between the BittWare card and the host system. The Toolkit includes drivers, libraries, utilities, and example projects for accessing, integrating, and developing applications for the BittWare card. Utilities and drivers connect the card to the host – whether via PCIe, USB, Ethernet, or serial port – and provide easy access to the card’s system monitoring features and Flash programming. Extensive libraries provide a consistent, intuitive API for integrating the card into the system, and example projects illustrate data movement and provide a starting point for development. The Toolkit supports 64-bit Windows and Linux platforms.
The BittWorks II Toolkit libraries provide a stable API that scales with new cards. The functions are C-callable and are cross-platform, allowing them to be run anywhere that Linux or Windows runs.
The BittWorks Host Interface Library (BwHIL) is a library of C-callable functions for controlling BittWare cards.
BmcLib is a function library to control the BMC on a BittWare card.
The Toolkit features several utilities that allow you to configure your device in the system, interact with FPGA projects and debug the FPGA, control the BMC on your card, and access the card from a remote system.
BwConfig is an interface for configuring BittWare devices in a system.
BwShell is an interactive command-line shell for PHP scripting that provides access to the BwHIL API and the BittWare hardware.
BwMonitor is an interface for controlling the Board Management Controller (BMC) on a BittWare card.
BwServer provides remote access to the BittWare card over a TCP/IP network via the BwHIL.
The BittWorks II Toolkit includes drivers for Linux and Windows. The Linux driver is BittWare’s fully customizable PCI Express driver, and Windows systems use a standard Jungo driver.
BwPCI is a customizable PCI Express driver for Linux.
Windows systems use a standard driver from Jungo.
Several reference designs are available to provide a starting point for your application development. These examples are available to download on BittWare’s developer site.
