Hello,

I am currently working on a USB 3.1, 10GigE to PCIe board, i was wondering if a FPGA would do the job? what can be the challenges with it?

Regards.

It can be done in an FPGA, but I've never done it. All FPGA vendors sell cores for it. I think EVERYTHING about implementing ethernet from scratch is challenging.

Can be done with a Xilinx 7 series FPGA.

what can be the challenges with it?
Completely depends with how much knowledge you and or your team possess. As mentioned above, if using IP cores will reduce the efforts.

Hello,

I actually found a great core for Ethernet from Intel (X550) ((**broken link removed**)) which does exactly what i need it to do... for the USB i could not find any ICs for the USB 3.1 (Gen2) any suggestions? or should i do it with FPGA? if yes any sources that might help please?

Regards.

If FPGA is not hard stop, there are many processors from TI,NXP/Freescale, Renesas etc which can support USB 3.1,PCIe and Ethernet. Even some high end controllers from Atmel or equalent will support these interfaces. Just search the manufacterers.
