    Question about using Sandy Bridge Controller chipset Z68 Express.

    Community Member


      My name is Himanshu (Him) Rawell.

      I am developing a custom RF project. To that end, I have a question about using Sandy Bridge controller chipset Z68 Express. The motherboard I plan to use is tentatively, PC104-Express of PC/104 Embedded Consortium.

      As a part of project, I want to read and write into SATA 3 Solid State drive at 750 MB/s using Sandy Bridge controller chipset Z68 Express over PCI Express bus using onboard DMA Controller.

      Therefore, I want to know what software or firmware I can use to control the function of Z68 Express through an onboard DMA controller.


      I am new to this forum of Embedded Technology experts therefore I will appreciate your help in knowing how I can expand my network of technical people on this forum.
