Keeping Your RTL Clean: Part 1

It’s pretty obvious that if we can avoid FPGA-hostility in our designs then the prototype will be ready sooner. However, we can’t expect RTL designers to compromise the final chip design just in order to help us prototypers. So that’s why we advocate Design-for-Prototyping as the way to make the design more robust and portable so that everybody wins.

Partitioning Poser #1

There are those who say that one should partition so that only sequential eements are allowed to appear at the FPGA edges, thus simplifying the timing and constraints at the FPGA pins.

Meet the Prototypers #2: Configuration and debug of PCIe in the lab

The North American leg of our FPMM Workshop world tour is over and what a brilliant series it has been so far! I have met prototypers working on many different projects; some new to prototyping, some very experienced, but all looking to make connections and share best practices with other prototypers in their area.

“ . . . and some have prototyping thrust upon them”

It was the eminently quotable William Shakespeare who wrote some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.” The quote comes from Twelfth Night, by the way.
