Resetting FPGA without Watchdog timer.

Started by ratemonotonic May 16, 2008
Hi all ,

I am devoloping software fro microblaze using XPS and I dont have
enough resources for a watchdog timer.

I want to reset the FPGA after n number of error conditions have
occured in software. Whats the most reliable way to reboot the Xilinx
Spartan 3 FPGA?

Any help will e much appreciated.

The -most- reliable way to reboot this would be to cycle power and force a re-load. Especially true if you are executing out of BRAM. G.
