Hardware (FPGA) Software(MCU) Interface

Started by ratemonotonic September 12, 2007
Hi all ,

Can any one tell me a generic pattern to designing an interface
between MCU(Configuring the Hardware ) and FPGA(used as an
accelerator).

My initial thoughts are to have a dual port RAM implemented in FPGA
and accessed as a memory mapped device from the MCU and used to
configure the Hardware.

Is this viable ? is this the norm? Are there any tutorials on the net
that can help(google didnt find any)?

Any help will be appreciated ?

Google "fpga coprocessor". More than a quarter-million hits. G.
