  • Projects / Hdlmake

    GNU General Public License v3.0 only

    Tool for generating multi-purpose makefiles for FPGA projects.

    Main features:

    makefile generation for: fetching modules from repositories simulating HDL projects synthesizing HDL projects synthesizing projects remotely (keeping your local resources free) generating multi-vendor project files (no clicking in the IDE!) many other things without involving make and makefiles

    Hdlmake supports modularity, scalability, revision control systems. Hdlmake can be run on any Linux or Windows machine with any HDL More info at the Wiki page

  • The GSI Timing Starter Kit is a functional snapshot of the eventual FAIR timing system, which is under active development. It demonstrates real-time coordination of two front-end equipment controllers. The product consists of a data master (Linux PC) which coordinates events, a timing master which synchronizes clocks (White Rabbit switch), and two front-end equipment controllers (either SPECv4 or SCUv2).

  • EPICS support for Wishbone peripherals: This project consist of a Generic EPICS IOC AsynDriver to support wishbone peripheral. It include the following features:

    Driver for X1052, Gennum, Etherbone WB master. Direct access to any register in the wishbone bus Auto-generation of EPICS Database file using wbgen2 Automatic real number convertion (2 complements, fixed point, signess) using .wb file Support for WR Core and other internal bus protocols (i2c, spi, etc.)

  • A cute-wr is a compact WR-node implementation with minimum components required. The initial design is derived from SPEC, but would work in an opposite manner as a FMC wr-nic, providing 2 DIO channels, external CLK input, EEPROM, JTAG, RS232, and expandable IOs through FMC connector. The gateware and software of cute-wr would also keep maximum compatibility with SPEC. Project is obsolete. See cute-wr-dp for a similar board.

  • Projects / Simple PCIe FMC carrier SPEC - Software

    GNU General Public License v2.0 or later

    Software support for the SPEC board, including kernel and user-space Linux code. The package also include the fmc-bus driver, which is expected to be used by other carriers as well.

  • A software framework for Linux device drivers aimed at supporting controls and data acquisition hardware. ZIO supports sub-nanosecond timestamps, block-oriented input and output and transport of meta-data with the data samples. Users can change the buffer type and trigger type associated with a device at run time, and all of devices, triggers and buffers are easily implemented as add-on modules.

    The PF_ZIO implementation, currently in beta status, implements a network interface to the ZIO transport, which allows each I/O channel to generate or receive network frames. Applications see the network of devices and can talk with several of them from the same socket. We support SOCK_STREAM, SOCK_DGRAM and SOCK_RAW.

  • PHASE (Portable Hardware Analyzer with Sharing Explorer) aims at unifying hardware debugging in a single tool. From the host machine, a user may graphically interconnect components to describe the connection between his computer and the target device to debug. For example, a USB JTAG cable might be the root node, connected to an Arria2 development board with a CPLD and an FPGA, containing a LM32 processor.

    Wherever possible, PHASE fetches design descriptions from the internet based on the detected JTAG IDCODEs, USB vendor IDs, or PnP BUS information. In the preceding example, each step of the chain would be automatically detected. The USB cable from the vendor+product codes, the FPGA from the JTAG IDCODE and the LM32 from the Arria2's sld hub. The user would now be presented with read/write access to the data and instruction buses for visual inspection or firmware loading. Furthermore, the user could launch gdb to halt and single-step the embedded LM32 CPU.

    If a device is not yet described, the user may assemble a driver out of the reusable software components. For example, an Altera USB-Blaster driver is just a FTDI device chained with a byte packeter and a JTAG bit banger. Once the design has been graphically assembled, it is automatically scanned for attached JTAG devices and the USB cable design is shared online with any future users of the same cable.
