Except, this is in no way the same thing as the multiple die strategy from Xilinx. That's not comparing apples...This is simply a bridge-maker between IP cores that have different interfaces. IT sounds nice and probably is useful for getting up and running quickly. But I'll bet the bridge is pretty bloated and will use up much more resources than if you designed the bridge/interface yourself. that turns into FPGA real-estate which = $$$.

Yes, this is innovative and very effective concept. I do not fully understand new PCIe to DDR3 interface. Will you please examplify with illustartions. Also, if you compare this Xilinx solution of putting multiple die and complex interconnect, this looks better.

When I first heard the concept of a Network on Chip (NoC) in the context of an ASIC/SoC I thought "wow, that's cool" ... but I never thought I'd see the same thing on an FPGA ... things are moving faster and faster every day...
