PCIe cable and card

Hi,

 

I’d like to communicate between my FPGA board and laptop via PCIe. My board is VCU110 with Virtex UltraScale FPGA and the laptop has an ExpressCard slot.

 

I tried to find a PCIe cable to connect and an ExpressCard adapter to attach to the laptop, but I don’t know which ones to buy. Is there any suggestion? Can I buy this (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA8RU34D6394) as an ExpressCard adapter?

 

Thank you for your time!

Re: PCIe cable and card

If you just want for testing, just don't mess with it at this level. Too many parts. 

 

Buy a used $40 used Dell at eBay and stick the card in it.  If it does not fit, buy a riser cable

If you want to mount the card on top of your box, spend $90 a silver-plated 25cm cable

Re: PCIe cable and card

@jangbiemee I never used these adapters. To be frank I never knew they existed.
