how to design ip core?

Honored Contributor II

I am a green hand. I need capture cmos camera data with FPGA. With IO methed to capure can't satisfy real-time. So,I want to design a IP core include FIFO and DMA. But I don't know how to start. Can someone tell me the particular design flow.Some example is great! 

I'm a fresh man here,and this my first question. 

Thank you very much!

Have a look at the Avalon spocification. If you can format your data into an Avalon Stream, then you can use the already existing FIFO and SGDMA cores in SOPC builder.
