Schematics Review and FPGA Firmware Development

Senior Firmware Engineer (Freelancer) FPGA VivadoHLS FPGA Design Tool ...
Senior Firmware Engineer (Freelancer)
FPGA firmware development for the automation of control cabinets

The regulation and query of the IOs connected to the FPGA is controlled by an ARM-based 32-bit MCU

After a meticulous system requirements analysis, the SPI bus has been selected as interface between MCU and FPGA, where the MCU acts as master and the FPGA as slave


? Review of the FPGA circuit with regard to configuration and SPI interface to the MCU: pin assignment, voltage, termination, additional or missing IOs, etc.

? Important findings and crucial design change suggestions to minimize: Cross-talks, propagation delays, setup/hod-time errors, etc.

? Specification of the communication protocol between MCU and FPGA, and the memory mapping inside FPGA

? Integration of a new method for data integrity check on SPI via CRC-16, without violating the SPI protocol standard

? Implementation of a generic SPI slave in the FPGA, with corresponding memory connection to internal register banks

? Implementation of a generic SPI master in the FPGA, which acts as MCU in simulation mode

? The SPI bus is generic and configurable as Standard, Dual or Quad SPI

? Implementation of a solid simulation infrastructure, with corresponding description and simulation file with various test cases

? Simulation of all communication protocols between MCU and FPGA: Standard/Dual/Quad mode, data integrity check, etc.

? Crash course for internal employees: FPGA, VHDL, Xilinx-Vivado, modern simulation methods, critical paths in FPGA design, critical reports, timing closure
