Yup, it is what you thought (a gate level sim).

As for your "Quartus" way, I assume the sdo file comes into play
automatically. You should be able to tell by looking at the transitions in
the waveform - If they do not all change on clock edges (and you see lots of
glitches between clocks), then the sdo file has been used during the Quartus
sim.

Cheers,

Subject: AES (rijndael) Ip core
From: kkps@rapid5.com (kkps)

Links: << >>  << T >>  << A >>
Hi all,

I need to choose an AES (rijndael) IP core to use in Xilinx VirtexE.
There is a wide perplexing selection of core providers on the
internet. Does anybody have any recommendation regarding who is the
best (performance & cost)?

Also, I would highly appreciate it if anybody who has used an AES core
from some core provider can share their experience on:

1. Did it work?
2. Was it easy to use?
3. How was the technical support?
4. Do you recommend it?

Any information will be highly appreciated,
Krishna

Don't be afraid of designing your own, its not that big a deal.  EG,
my design isn't probably usable as a core to you (it is done as
schematic, encryption only, at
http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~nweaver/rijndael/ ) but it should give you
a good idea of how big it should be and how fast and desgin strategies
to use.  A good number should be ~800 slices and 10 BlockRAM for a >1.8
Gbps core in a Virtex E.


For core selection...

You need to make a decision on modes early, as this affects the
design.  IF you want to use CFB or CBC mode (feedbakc modes), you will
want a latency optimized core:  Single round, no pipeliing.
Otherwise, if you are using CTR more or another no feedback mode, or
many simultanious streams, you want a single round which is pipelined.

If you CAN, use CTR mode only, it has no feedback cycles and only
requires an encryption core, no decryption core.

You probably want a key agile core, simply because it costs
effectively nothing.  In such a case, you want the encryption pipeline
to output the last sets of keys for a decryption core.

Amphion and Helion both seem to have competitive cores, but I've never
worked with them, only read the data sheets.

It sounds like you are referring to an external chip.  You can make a
sound generator inside the FPGA, which can range from a simple clock
generator to a DDS to drive a to a table based generator, and you can
use arithmetic to handle multiple channels.  Depending on your
requirments, you can drive either a DAC or use a PWM through a simple
RC filter to get your sound output.

You can download ModelSim XE-Starter from ISE WebPACK download page.
(You will have to log in first.)
After you install ModelSim XE-Starter, it will ask you if you want to
obtain a license.
        Although I know that ModelSim XE-Starter is crippled, the nice
(?) thing about it is that it is free and has no limitation on the size
of the design it can simulate.
However, if you try to simulate a design larger than 500 lines of HDL
code, ModelSim XE-Starter's simulation performance starts to suffer.
I do run a design that exceeds the 500 lines limitation by about 3,000
lines daily, but at least for my application, I find the simulation
performance acceptable.
Since it's a freebie, I won't complain about the simulation performance.

Not.

Check out app notes XAPP653 and XAPP646.  Only PCI and LVDCI can even come close, and at that you have to put in a hack to guarantee the pin will *never* exceed 3.6V from Vdd or Vss.

Software support for other 3.3v modes was removed in ISE4.2sp3.

Maurizio,

First, PeakVHDL is a simulator, not a synthesizer or .jed builder so quit
wasting your time on PeakVHDL.

Second, you do not tell us what GAL by Atmel you are using, nor do you tell
us if you are using one or two of them to replace the two 22V10 SPLDs from
Cypress.

My advice to you is to contact Atmel and have them fit the VHDL design into
the Atmel chip.  They will be more than glad to do this, knowing that they
are going to win a socket from Cypress.  If you don't like this free service
from Atmel, you can pay me the big bucks to do the same thing for you.  :)

If I'm not mistaken, the limit is 500 *statements*, not 500 lines.

Yes, that should be possible, but what I am thinking of is a soundchip like 
the YM262 OPL3 chip by Yamaha or maybe some of you remember the good old 
SID chip. Of course I would only get digital output, but that wouldn't be a 
problem, but is there a source where I can find a ready to use VHDL/Verilog 
implementation of such a complex chip?

I'm not aware of any commercial IP for a sound chip in an FPGA.  As far as
standalone sound chips go, those have pretty much gone the way of the dodo
because the DSP based sound cards are so much more capable.  YOu might have
better luck finding sounc generator code for a DSP micro and then using that as
an add-on outside the FPGA.

Not much we can tell from the design summary other than the size of the device and the percent utilization.  You need to open
up the timing analyzer and look at the paths that are failing timing.  Once you know what paths are failing, then you can
address fixes for the timing whether that is adjusting constraints to relax timing on non-critical (and multicycle) paths,
floorplanning to reduce distances on the critical path, or altering the design to reduce levels of logic and/or fanout.

I know in the past that schematic-capture was the traditional
design-entry
method for digital-logic.  But with today's crazy gate-counts and SoCs,
is
that really still practical?!?  For maybe a small block or two, but the
entire

Ok this approach might work for you, but I think this is VERY RISKY for
a
*FIRST-TIME* ASIC developer.  At a minimum I would use a Verilog/VHDL
simulator on the foundry's signoff-checklist (Cadence, Mentor, or
Synopsys.
I'm sure there are more.)

That's true.  You can hand-off a synthesized netlist (or maybe even
VHDL/
Verilog in RTL source form) to the foundry.  But you still need to meet
their sign-off checklist.

As for doing it yourself, that's not a wise choice for a first time ASIC
developer.  A lot of things can go wrong (if you do it yourself with no
prior experience), and you could potentially waste a lot of money in
re-fabbing the entire design to fix some layout error.

Check out the MAME game emulator project (www.mame.org)
MAME is a arcade game emulator.  It has C-source code for emulating (in
C-software) hundreds of arcade hardware pieces.  Not quite what you want
(VHDL/Verilog), but with persistence, you should be able to translate
the C-implementation into VHDL or Verilog.

I don't know about your specific chip (YMF262), but many other Yamaha
sound chips are emulated.  Alos, the emulation quality varies from part
to 
part.  Some emulations are practically perfect, others are obviously 
flawed.  The YMF262 is relatively simple compared to some of Yamaha's
other
chips (like the Ym2151 and 2610/2612)  

...

The MAME source code takes a little time to understand.  Also plan on
spending at least a week to understand the emulation mechanics (remember
this the C-source code runs a 'virtual' hardware environment in 
software!)

when I have to insert BUFG or/and BUFT explicitly, how to code to insert
what I want solely?
For example, a piece of code as below :
===============
-- MCU interface unit :
......
entity mcu_interf is
    port(
        clk :        in std_logic;
        rstn :       in std_logic;
        din :        in std_logic;
        addr :       in std_logic_vector(0 to 7);
        wrn :        in std_logic;
        dout :       out std_logic_vector(0 to 7)
        );
end mcu_interf;
......

-- the top level :
entity top is
    port(
        clk :        in std_logic;
        rstn :       in std_logic;
        data :       inout std_logic_vector(0 to 7);
        addr :       in std_logic_vector(0 to 7);
        wrn :        in std_logic
        );
end top;

Now, I must to instantiate a BUFT in top-level between "dout" of mcu_interf
and "data" of toplevel. Here, my wander is how to deal with the input
direction?

----- if YES,
   If I add PAD and IOBUF for every port, I must not delare them in the port
list? And what this result for simulation? I get this info from here :

Would someone help me?

This is just the chip which you have on the soundcards (up to the AWE64). It 
was used to generate the Adlib sound.

Ok, I will have a look at it...

Ok, I will have a look at it and try to find a sound generator for DSPs. 
Maybe I have a little bit luck and find one which fits my needs =).

Subject: Xilinx hiring practises

I saw that Xilinx was hiring for VLSI guys with some substantial
experience, not just Verilog coders, but transistor level, HSpice,
layout, the works etc.

I just happen to fit the bill and being an FPGA nut as well, but I am
out of state & MA based.

As I was just about to expect a pre screen call, I was told that I
would not be interviewed unless I waived the benefit of a relocation
package as the budget is really tight. Of course I was working with a
head hunter so it must be even more really tight.

I was somewhat dumbstruck, flabbergasted, and somewhat pissed off.

This would seem to be a blatant form of either age or distance related
discrimination as I believe that many older engineers will have left
the valley. But Si valley is where the action is as any job search
will show so I was willing to go back even if the cost of living was
much much higher than MA, and salary likely much lower and now
apparently I have to buy the job.

Is this true Peter, Austin, is it common that relocation is gone in
the valley.

I am sure that Peter didn't just walk from Denmark? to SJ to start
work for what I thought was a remarkable company.

From: "Felix Bertram" <fbertram@emagic.de>

Links: << >>  << T >>  << A >>
I am looking for some experiences (either good or bad) with Xilinx
MicroBlaze running in bus configuration 1 (shared external code and data
memory).

Did anybody manage to create a "real life" product in this configuration?

If so, is anybody willing to share experiences with me?



Any comments very much appreciated,
best regards

Felix
