How often I have wished for this feature, and how often I have wondered 
why the IEEE committee didn't add it to the spec.  But there is no way 
to make the port list varible.  You can only vary the sizes of the 
ports.  The only workaround is to use `defines.

Subject: How can we fully utilize available BRAMs...

Hi guys,
I have a problem with how EDK utilizes BRAMs for data and instruction
LMB memories. I have 64KB instruction and data space and I have 32
BRAMs on my chip. So basically I should have 32 * 18KB memory on my
board. However when EDK wants to map the data and instruction memories
on the BRAMs it really under-utilizes the BRAMs. It assigns 2KB (every
bit of the word) of instruction and data on the either port of each
BRAM. I've tried with different memory sizes and still it uses just 2KB
on each port for data and instruction. I should be able to virually use
512KB of on chip memory but practically I can't use more than 128KB of
my on-chip memory space. Do you know any way to change the way that EDK
assigns words to the BRAMs?

Thanks beforehand,

We could drop leo but have a lot of process docs. defined with this tool. We have been considering a swicth to XST so we can stop Leo maintenance. For now it may be better to edit the script and run Leo standalone although it's nice to use PN to generate the script - for this one needs leonardo as part of the flow. Script edits get overwritten by PN flow.

I don't understand why stuff that used to work now doesn't. In 7.1 all one needed was .edf and .xco files in the project to compile with coregen models, now 8.2 want's the .vhd files for these too?

Goran Bilski,

The values are reversed.
If you reverse the addresses then you get the correct values.
MicroBlaze uses 0:31 but I think that you are watching the values in
the other order 31:0

Subject: Re: Post Place and Route simulation for Microblaze...

Dear Goran,
I double checked everything again about Post Translate and Post Place
and Route simulation. If the contents of my BRAMs are all 0 I have a
sequence of fetched addresses in Post Translate which is exactly the
same as Post Place and Route (when the address gets stable on address
bus) if the contents of my BRAMs are 0 in system_stub_timesim.vhd. On
the other hand if my BRAMs are populated with data and opcodes I have
the same sequence for Post Translate and Post Place and Route however
the sequence is different from the case that the contents are 0. After
all the both sequence of addresses are insane and not reasonable. This
is the sequence of the fetched addresses when the content of my BRAMs
are 0:
00000000 -> 20000000 -> 10000000 -> 30000000 -> 08000000 -> 28000000 ->
18000000 -> 38000000 -> 04000000 ...

and this is the sequence when my BRAMs are populated with data:
00000000 -> 20000000 -> 10000000 -> 0A000000 -> 2A000000 -> 1A000000 ->
3A000000 -> 06000000 ...

considering my address space which is 00000000 - 0000FFFF these
addresses are not reasonable.

Looking forward to your advice,
Thanks alot,

Amir

A half work around, at least for SynplifyPro:  declare the ports as 
inout.  There aren't warnings for unconnected inputs (yay!) but there 
aren't warnings for incorrect inputs that are only driven by the module 
(boo!).

Do you know of a way of accessing the Xilinx platform USB cable
from an user application ?

The only way I know is the xtclsh stuff but I found it pretty slow ...
I designed a small module connected to a BSCAN where basically
I just need to continuously read the User DR and it takes ages to read
a few megabytes ...

And I know it could be faster because if I could drive the jtag pins
manually at 24 Mhz, it would just take a few seconds to do such a
transfer ...

John,

Thanks for your advice and for sharing your experience.  We had a bad

the easiest way is possible hacking the impact-server tcp protocol, its
rather simple. just start impact server (with debug logging), then
impact that is connected to it and look in etherreal and debug log

this way you can talk to any xilinx cable be it USB or not. I have
partial protocol infos available, but not full :( should be doable in a
few days work. sure the protocol may change every impact release :(

or potentially you could also use the xilinx jtag dll's but they are
also allmost not documented :(

hm, the best solution would be to write open-source replacement
firmware for the platform USB cable!

You are wrong there. ZIP files and most EBooks use some variant of LZ
encoding using a suffix tree (which might be feasible in hardware),
followed by Huffman coding - static *or* dynamic - on the resultant
symbols. Zip in particular uses the deflate algorithm, which can emit
either static or dynamically-generated Huffman data on each block.
But AFAIK, the Huffman table is *not* updated with each symbol. There
was a kid on sci.crypt a while back banging on about a per-symbol
dynamic Huffman technique he'd invented, perhaps look there.

JPEG and MPEG use a DCT (and optionally in MPEG, motion compensation)
before applying further compression. The DCT is *not* huffman by
another name, its a discrete cosine transform.

Also, look for information on Suffix Trees (used in Lempel-Zif
encoding), and you might find it can be done in a limited way in
hardware. The tree is built incrementally, and looks kinda like
Logan's trie, except that the first symbol of a sequence is at
the leaf, with the last symbol at the root. Kinda...

In general, though Huffman coding was thought to be "optimal" two
decades ago, newer techniques have been shown to be better. For
example, arithmetic coding (needs two passes over the data though),
and the Burrows-Wheeler transform (used in bzip).

There should be enough terms for you to go googling and perhaps find
a more suitable algorithm than Huffman. Don't forget - compression is
simply the process of removing whatever is predictable from a data
stream. The better you understand your data, the better an algorithm
can predict it, and the better your compressor can be.

Good luck!

Clifford Heath.

I was at the Embedded Systems Conference in SanJose this year and I sat
in on a 2 hour lecture on this.  I initially thought the class was some
kind of joke, but yes, they were actually using LabView to generate
code for an FPGA.  After sitting and watching a guy make a shift
register I left the class with my inital impression of the class, its a
joke.

I can look at a schematic and tell a circuit is a shift register, I can
look at VHDL/Verilog code and see a shift register, but that mess of
LabView crud they hade on the screen looked NOTHING like a shift
register.  I know this is pretty much version 1 of their FPGA software,
but it will take much more work before it is ever usefull as a design
tool.

I can't see how this will ever catch on for LabView...

One simple user function, "CON_INT" is used ONLY in one
component(PE.vhd) which is a sub-module of user peripheral pcore.

It seems that I need to compile the user package and put the compiled
user library in IP-wrapper.
I need some comment from experienced people.

User component "PE.vhd" looks like
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
---- "PE.vhd"
library IEEE;
use IEEE.STD_LOGIC_1164.ALL;

use work.packet.all;  -- function declare and function body

entity PE is
....
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And "packet.vhd" looks like
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------ "packet.vhd"
library IEEE;
use IEEE.std_logic_1164.all;

package packet is
....
subtype reg4  is std_logic_vector(3 downto 0);
function CON_INT( vec: reg4 ) return integer;
end packet;

package body packet is

function CON_INT( vec: reg4 ) return integer; is
variable bin: integer  range 0 to 255;
begin
  ...
  return bin;
end CON_INT;
end packet;

Hi all,
I am using the FFT coregen block with pipelined streaming option in my
design implementation on a Virtex-4 FPGA. I am having a lot of issues
with the implementation and have shortlisted them below:
1. First of all, the HDL generated file for FFT core 3.2 is not
synthesizable. Is there any way to synthesize this block. I am using
Xilinx ISE 7.1.4i and latest IP update.
2. I went back and instantiated the FFT core 3.1 and tried to use that
in my design. My PNR report states that the FFT logic is trimmed off. I
am not able to understand the problem.
3. Also, how do I compile the wrapper file??
Please let me know if you have come across this problem.
Thanks,
Vivek

Also the synthesis report shows the following:
Reading core <fft_testv4_r22_flow_ctrl_1.ngc>.
Reading core <fft_testv4_r22_cnt_ctrl_2.ngc>.
Reading core <fft_testv4_r22_cnt_ctrl_3.ngc>.
Reading core <fft_testv4_r22_cnt_ctrl_4.ngc>.
Reading core <fft_testv4_r22_cnt_ctrl_5.ngc>.
Reading core <fft_testv4_r22_cnt_ctrl_6.ngc>.
Reading core <fft_testv4_r22_cnt_ctrl_7.ngc>.
Reading core <fft_testv4_r22_cnt_ctrl_8.ngc>.
Reading core <fft_testv4_r22_cnt_ctrl_9.ngc>.
Reading core <fft_testv4_r22_cnt_ctrl_10.ngc>.
Reading core <fft_testv4_r22_cnt_ctrl_11.ngc>.
Reading core <fft_testv4_r22_cnt_ctrl_12.ngc>.
Reading core <fft_testv4_cmpy_3_dsp48_13.ngc>.
Reading core <fft_testv4_cmpy_3_dsp48_14.ngc>.
Reading core <fft_testv4_cmpy_3_dsp48_15.ngc>.
Reading core <fft_testv4_cmpy_3_dsp48_16.ngc>.
Reading core <fft_testv4_cmpy_3_dsp48_17.ngc>.
Reading module "fifo_memory.ngo" ( "fifo_memory.ngo" unchanged since
last run )...
Reading core <fifo_memory_fifo_generator_v2_0_as_1.ngc>.
Loading core <upload_bus_mux> for timing and area information for
instance <upload_bus_mux>.
Loading core <fft_testv4_r22_flow_ctrl_1> for timing and area
information for instance <BU46>.

I think this implies that my core is only being read and not loaded. If
it's loaded for timing and area information, my core would work.

Thanks in advance for your valuable suggestions.

You must include the file that contains that function in the hdl
sources list when using the import peripheral wizard.

It's not supposed to be. You need to use the netlist that coregen produces.

its already done! I was kind of hoping someone does it,
and voila, done...

and as a good smile bonus, I really like that webpage,
the author can really name thing with proper names.

to understand that just place the cursor over "proprietary nightmare" -
and you see the hyperlink - www.jungo.com !! :)

nice way to say it: "The windriver stuff really is one major thing that
f*** ups Xilinx Cable IV and USB Cable support".
