Implementing a dual core processor in FPGA.

Few years ago, microprocessors manufacturers competed to get the faster processor. High speed means more tasks can be executed in the same amount of time, but also, means higher power consumption. To improve this, the voltages of the core starts…

Using PCIe in Xilinx 7 Series.

When we look into communicating an FPGA with a computer, the first interface that we can find is UART, but this interface has several limitations in terms of speed. In order to transfer high amount of data between the CPU…

Adding windows to xFFT IP.

Digital signal processing algorithms are, in general, purely mathematical algorithms that works perfectly on our notebook or MATLAB, but in real design, the algorithm starts to return us some unexpected results. One example of that is the quantification error. While…

Discovering the SmartFusion® 2 SoC.

Several years ago, electronic designs began to feature System on a Chip (SoC) technology. This technology is an excellent choice for designs that require a higher integration or a reduction in Bill of Materials (BOM) cost. On this blog we…
