Wishbone Bus
Author: Manohar Vanga
Email: manohar dot vanga at cern dot ch
This is the specification and software for the self-describing Wishbone bus
FPGA Configuration Space, a.k.a. Self Describing Bus
The package should contain two folders:
[Updated as of 2013-03, right before release 1.1 of the specification]
docs : The documentation about the self-describing Wishbone bus specification.
driver: The Wishbone bus driver with sample drivers
This project hosts the SDB specification and related material:
docs/specification: the actual specification for SDB. The generated pdf
for official releases is always placed in the "Files" tab of the ohwr
project (
pcie-wb: a driver by Wesley, for two different FPGA carriers. It was
born as a separate project and then merged here, since it's very
relevant to SDB.
sdbfs: sdb "filesystem" work. Includes "gensdbfs", to generate rom images.
sdbfs/doc includes documentation for this project. Again, it used
to be a separate project, but it's now merged.
We kept some previous work:
historic/fosdem2012: the presentation by Manohar Vanga, made at
FOSDEM. The current data structures are very different from what
was planned back then, so this is mainly of historical value.
historic/driver: previous work by Manohar, most likely to be removed
at this point because it is based on the older data structures,
that were not implemented in gateware.
