I write for search help for my new project
I must change the interface of board from pci to pci espress
I use the xc6slx9 as device pci at 32bit 33mhz
I read about the xio2001 but I don't know well it
can you give me an alternative, does anyone know this chip? the xio I need configure it or it is a bridge plag and play?
thanks a lot

I see a PCI express to PCI protocol translator from PLX also.
Are you looking for a soft core to be implemented in FPGA or external chip to be placed on board ?
For configuring the XIO2001, you need to check the datasheet/UG of the corrusponding chip.

Take a look at the PEX8112 from PLX (now Avago). This is a simple one-lane PCIe to PCI reversible bridge. It replaces the original PEX8111. They also have a PEX8311 PCIe to local bus bridge that combines this function with a PCI to generic bus interface. However if you already have PCI running in your Spartan-6 it's probably better to just use the PEX8112. This will be pretty much transparent to the software as well.
