I have a time-critical thing where the signal passes through an XC7A15 FPGA and does a fair lot of stuff inside. I measured delay vs some voltages: 1.8 aux no measurable DC effect 3.3 vccio no measurable DC effect 2.5 vccio ditto (key io's are LVDS in this bank) +1 core -10 ps per millivolt! If I vary the trigger frequency, I can see the delay heterodyning against the 1....

Try out the PipelineC compiler - it pipelines combinatorial logic for you. https://github.com/JulianKemmerer/PipelineC/wiki It is also a full hardware description language - thats cool. Looking for folks interested in using or contributing to the project. I need some compiler help :) Super happy to answer questions - thanks folks!

I have a design in mind that would fit in this skeleton: [code] module xyz ( result, leftOp, rightOp); parameter integer nmBits = 1; localparam integer highBit = nmBits - 1; output result; input [ highBit:0] leftOp; input [ highBit:0] rightOp; // ... endmodule [/code] The way (xyz) is designed, this module would work differently for different values of (nmBits),

Gowin seems to have some nice configuration modes in their parts. Of course they have an auto boot from internal flash and JTAG can be used to program either the RAM or the Flash. They also have master and slave SPI modes, a serial mode that daisy chains multiple FPGAs and a parallel bus mode along with a mode to try reading external flash and fall back to internal auto boot. But

Is it illegal to use an (enum) as a Verilog function input?

I'm still very much interested in finding out whether or not it's possible for a Verilog function to have a boolean value as input, but while I was waiting for input on that I decided to rewrite a version of my Verilog code to use an (enum) instead of a (boolean). Much to my amazement, it appears that I can't use an (enum) as an input to a function either! I wrote the following code
