Running Linux on a Litex SoC.

That FPGA are very versatile devices is something that everybody knows, and the fact that you can implement inside many different processors makes the FPGA very interesting devices for test different processors architectures. In this blog we already saw the…

Building a SoC with Litex.

There are many cases where we will need a processor inside our FPGA. In my case, soft cores are very useful when I have to implement in the FPGA a manager for an external device using high level interfaces like…

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…

Using DSP48E1 Slice.

A few years ago, FPGAs were used almost exclusively for communication systems. On the other hand, DSPs are used to execute digital signal processing algorithms. The reason is the hardware components that were integrated. FPGAs, were based on flip-flops, LUTs…
