I am currently working on integrating the TUSB7320 to be able to transfer data to a HDD.
I have sucessfully used the TUSB7320EVM board to connect and acheive the data rate that I require.
But we currently require a mini PCIe version of the PCB to be able to integrate into a small form factor PC.
Could TI tell me if i can avail the design files and layout files for the EVM built around the TUSB7320 or TUSB7340. The User guide mentions that the layout files can be procured if requested. ( I understand that this could be the PCB layout files designed in OrCAD).
Also if TI has already started building the mini PCIe version of this device, then could I get an estimate of how long before we see the product.
Are there any impeding issues to take the design and convert it to a miniPCIe version. Eg (data rate or any high speed design issues that might creep in when this design is converted to a miniPCIe version).
Another option is to connect the miniPCIe version using a bridge to the PCIe board.
Any other thoughts or ideas would be appreciated. Kindly excuse me if i have not explained clearly.
