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…

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…

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…

DDR resources.

When most of us hear DDR, the first think that comes to our mind is RAM memories, but DDR is related with the comunication protocol, not with the memory. DDR means Double (Dual), Data Rate. This, basically means that un…
