Abstract

As storage requirements and magnetic disk densities increase the need for reliable storage solutions also increase. This IP core, written in Verilog HDL, provides a small and efficient hardware accelerator for performing RAID 6 calculations to provide uninterrupted access to data during both single and double disk failures. In this paper we describe the implementation and verification of a RAID 6 IP block. We present an example system implemented on an FPGA to demonstrate the capabilities of the IP block and verify its operation in hardware
