I am not an FPGA developer but I do work for a company that sells products
that do highspeed data transmission from FPGA to computer. Our products
historically use IDE and are now being rewritten to use PCIe but that is not
a simple protocol.
For 8 Mbps I think your only option is an interface with at least some
However you should be able to find a loadable module without writing much
code, no? If your computer has it you could try IDE but you need to be able
to DMA and would need to write a custom driver to dump the data. TBH
Ethernet might be the simplest way to do it. I don't think SPI would be
fast enough and USB2 has a ton of overhead.
