Hi there, I am a student of MSc I want to do a project based on FPGA/VHDL and/or DSP. I want to do a project by which I can gain the skills right enough to get me a job. My options are(please feel free to suggest something else as well): 1)FPGA Random number generator 2)FPGA square root function 3)DES Algorithm VHDL implementation (Someone suggested this as we get more chances to do syn...

Hello, i want to test my fft and filter component that i created for FGPA. to do this i want to create a test input data (with size of say 1000 points). and process the data both with matlab and xilinx ise simulation to see if the match each other. to create this input data, i would use matlab. now my problem is that i can't feed this data to vhdl testbench. it is a tediuos job to manually c...


Learning FPGA Design - what board?

I'm trying to learn FPGA design in my spare time whilst a postgrad student. I think I understand the languages used (Verilog/VHDL) reasonably well, but find that the best way to learn is to actually test things out. So I was wondering if I should buy a development board, and if so, which one? And once I have such a thing, what do I try to do with it first? Sorry if this seems vague, but...


FIR or IIR, less hardware?

Hello, I want to implement a filter on a Xilinx spartan3-1000 FGPA. I don?t know which filter is better for me FIR or IIR. What I need is a filter which is: 1-very sharp 2-very low ripple 3-very good phase response: I don't need a 100% linear phase response. I just need the phase response to be as good as magnitude response. 4-less hardware I can't decide which filter to use because: 1


FPGA vs DSP

As FPGAs get cheaper and more capable, cost is no longer an issue. I can now get an ECP2, Spartan, or Cyclone for the same price as a 21262 or...

As FPGAs get cheaper and more capable, cost is no longer an issue. I can now get an ECP2, Spartan, or Cyclone for the same price as a 21262 or C67. Thus, IMHO when to choose one over the other. Choose a DSP if 1) You have many different (low MIPS) algorithms to run. If the algorithms are very different, you will have use LUTs for each individual function, forcing a large FPGA. 2) ...

Hello, I'm a student doing a project on implementing optical flow algorithm into FPGA. Basically, i would like to mount a camera ( preferably webcam coz its cheap) onto a FPGA( my college currently has up2 and up3 @ltera education board) and it do some image/video processing in FPGA and display in an LCD or CRT monitor. As for my part, I'm doing the input part. That is getting the data...

As an FPGA designer, I find it very easy to design and code FPGAs of all sorts. Tweaking is extremely easy, and code is mostly portable from one brand to another. I have recently designed a C6713 DSP, and talk about learning curve!!! It is odd that the pins are multiplexed to certain functions and are unusable at times, and the Chip Support Libraries API are a pain in the butt (1108 pages!...
