I would like to build a connection between my master device and max v, so I program an i2c interface logic to max v which I download from opencores. But I can read from my master device but can't write correctly to the MAX V cpld.

Hi,

 

Do you have the link to the documentation of the project from opencores?

 

Intel design store do have an example design implementing GPIO expansion using I2C bus interface on Max series if you want to check it out:

Capture15.PNGHi el.ign,

 

Thanks for your reply! The link to the documentation of the project from opencores is https://github.com/mpDean9939/I2C-MasterSlave-Verilog​.

And I have tried the "an494 example design implementing GPIO expansion using I2C bus interface on Max series", it works well but it only have slave address matching and data while no register address. So I tried to modify it's .v file but it failed in connection between my master device and max v cpld. The situation is as I asked in intel forums, the link is https://forums.intel.com/s/question/0D50P00004Mh74YSAR/failure-of-modification-to-altera-example-an4.... I also attach the modified verilog file and insert the image about the instance in the top module in this chat since there must be only one attachment, so the original .v file of an494 can't be attached, you can see it via the former link.

Please help me about my problem.

 

Best Regards,

Liam

Hi Liam,

 

Great that the example design did work, I noticed that the example design an494 demonstrate no register address, we do have another example design that have command register:

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/an/an486.pdf

 

However this example design demonstrate the MAX FPGA devices serve as a bridge between a host that has serial peripheral interface (SPI) to communicate with devices connected through an I2C bus. This may be as close as what you are trying to achieve.

Thanks for your advice. But the an486 example set the MAX FPGA to a master not a slave, and I just set my MAX V to a I2C slave. So could you please help me review my I2C_to_GPIO_modify file?

Hi,

 

Are you facing the write issue using the code entirely from opencores? I am unsure if the code are supposedly targeted for MAX V device.

 

I am not really familiar with verilog, but you probably want to get the register address code to work first since the an494  example is already working.

 

Regards.

Hi,

 

Are there any update to this issue?

Hi Liam,

 

Since the example code that you shared is not for targeting our MAX V devices, it is difficult to debug why it failed when adding the register address.

 

I have sent out an example of a design file of MAX V via message, can you check it out?

 

Regards.
