One of our customers will be asking us to implement a bunch of math functions on an FPGA-boards. There are a lot of "decisions" that affect control processing/algorithm selection, so they specifically requested an FPGA with "PowerPC." (This immediately tells me Xilinx's marketing has done an A+ job of getting managers and other non-technical people to subconsciously associate 'FPGA CPU' wi...

I would like to use an FPGA for a motor control application. I have worked with FPGAs before and am comfortable with what needs to be done inside the FPGA, where I need some advice is how to interface the FPGA with the outside world. At the end of the chain I need to generate an analog command voltage (multiple channels actually). My initial idea was to use a Cypress PSOC as the DAC and talk ...

Hello, I am totally new to USB (well, at least to the darkness inside ;-( I have to read data from an FPGA located behind the TD245. My question is : who begins the data transfer? if I program the FPGA to read say 1k bytes, does the FPGA have to begin filling up the FIFO and suppose that the data will be caught on time by the DLL, or does the FPGA have to track the TXE ("transmit enable") and r...

I'm looking for a ** low cost, flexible ** way of sending/receiving signals in MS Excel or Access. My applications are not time critical, so this is not a big factor. Hopefully FPGA is the answer I am looking for. Does anyone know of a library of FPGA C/C++ functions & Associated DLL's? I am a novice, and any information I can get would be appreciated.

Situation: an FPGA drives the IRQ6 input, the portF pin. It's set up to use another chip select as the autovector generator. This mostly works. The FPGA pulls it low, the ISR runs, and the ISR pokes the FPGA to release (raise) the interrupt request pin before it exits. But sometimes the firmware wants to shut down the associated subsystem so tells the fpga to clear the interrupt request, wh...
