Anyone doing any test driven design for FPGA work? I've gone over to doing it almost universally for C++ development, because It Just Works -- you lengthen the time to integration a bit, but vastly shorten the actual integration time. I did a web search and didn't find it mentioned -- the traditional "make a test bench" is part way there, but as presented in my textbook* doesn't impo...

Hi, OK, left the lora chips asside for a while, so .. now back to FPGAs. I have two olimex ice40 boards where I would like to use the onboard SRAM. The RAM chip is a samsung K5R4016V1B-10 (256K words * 16 bits). The datasheets are here: https://www.olimex.com/Products/_resources/ds_k6r4016v1d_rev40.pdf The most important pages are page 7 (for "read"), pages 8 and 9 (for "write") a...

We're starting a new design, and I again find myself tempted by the Microsemi SmartFusion2 as combination FPGA/uC. It's got a built-in ARM Cortex-M3, which is a simple dinky micro instead of some big honking A8 application processor that you can't even get up and running without kilobytes of boot code. The smallest, cheapest one is about $15 in small quantity with 64 kB of data memory ...

Hello, i am an experienced FPGA designer, having used Verilog for long time. For a mixed analog-digital project involving an ASIC and (maybe) an FPGA, i need to get ready for extensive verification and test-vector generation. The mainstream tools seem to be SystemVerilog and UVM, which seem to have a difficult learning curve and also difficult maintenance. But somebody suggested me to consi...
