FFT algorithm using an FPGA and XDMA.

In this blog we talked (a little) about the xDMA IP from Xilinx, and how to send and receive data through PCI using an FPGA. In that occasion we used the Picozed board with the FMC Carrier gen 2. This…

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…

Development boards I use.

Many times, developers who want to take their first steps in the world of the FPGAs ask me about a development board which begin to test their first designs. From the newie point of view, I understand that see a…

Connecting an SSD to Zynq MPSOC.

Devices like Xilinx Zynq or Microchip PolarFire give us the possibility to mix in a single design a high level OS like Linux and a fast device like FPGA. For signal processing, or even data science, is very interesting to…

Designing an FPGA board.

Few month ago, I decided to design my own FPGA development board. The main reason for that was simply learn to do it, because I have design a lot o boards for peripherals, PMODs, or other projects, but never one…

Genesys ZU and Zynq US+.

Genesys ZU
This week I have received the big (big) sister of the Eclypse Z7, the Digilent’s Genesys ZU. This board, due to its FMC, ZMOD and PMOD is a good choice for signal processing applications, but first, let’s take a look…
