HPS Avalon MM FIFO dump data at read status pointer 0


output.JPGfifo settings.JPG​Hi, I have following questions?

  1. Why read pointer is 1 less than the write pointer?
  2. What is this dump value 19844532 at position 0 of read status pointer?
  3. I am writing 1 to 8 to fifo but not getting the last digits as fifo read status pointer reaches 0.

Here is my code and designs.

May I know which Quartus Version you are using and are you using Cyclone V soc?
