It will be the first FPGA for me. What I want to do is not complex, I have done similar controllers (more complex really)numerous times using logic parts, PLD, CPLD-s etc. I need to put together a display controller, to just do framebuffer memory -> display interface. Framebuffer memory will be some sort of DDRAM (DDR-which depending on the FPGA type), I'll be happy with a 1920x1080 framebuf

Wow! Designing in a group is strange. I'm helping with the design of a ventilator and it is a unique experience. We have people of many skill levels and talents, many I don't even know. The design seems to ping pong around based on the hot button issue of the day. They already have someone to do board level design, but he has a day job, so the work gets done a bit helter skelte

https://www.safetty.net/download/pont_pttes_2001.pdf Page 13 Note carefully what this means! There is a common misconception among the developers of embedded applications that interrupt events will never be lost. This simply is not true. If you have multiple sources of interrupts that may appear at ?random? time intervals, interrupt responses can be missed: indeed, where there are

STM32L412 ADC Input Specs

Maybe someone can help me out with this. I'm looking at the data sheet for the STM32L412xx trying to find details on the mapping of the input voltage range to the 12 bit code produced. It might appear that the Vref+ and Vref- pins define the exact range, but it seems unusual that it could be equal to the power rails. With Vref+ = 3.3V and Vref- = 0 volts does 0V on the input


Memory Protections

Conceptually, memory (or a memory region) can be thought of as being readable, writeable or executable -- and any combination of these. Hardware *may* enforce these protections -- to varying degrees. Usually, you opt to PREVENT some set of these operations (i.e., no write, no read, no execute). In many cases, this acts as an invariant -- "this is data; nothing should be mucking with it ...

I'm trying to implement a PID controller in C for an embbeded system. This is the first time. I think I haven't fully understand the theory. For the proportional term, we have an output from PID controller that is P = Kp*err Suppose I have a power supply with a variable output voltage. The power supply output is connected to a low-value resistor that dissipates power and transfer...
