hi.

  1. I have successfully booted Armstrong Linux in HPS of cyclone V ,
  2. made a simple program for ram functionality .

I want to access ram data stored in address "00" using python in HPS.

Please provide me a sample/eg code. or documentation for the same.

 

Thank you.

Hi ,

Please try to use the general linux commands using wrapper os.system() in python.

and let us know the results.

entity pmuga_01 is port ( CLOCK_50 : in std_logic; AUX_LEDO : out std_logic; DAT_LED : out std_logic_vector(3 downto 0); LED : out std_logic ); end entity; architecture Behavioral of pmuga_01 is   signal counter : integer := 0; signal clk_1Hz : std_logic; signal aux : std_logic; signal data : std_logic_vector(3 downto 0); signal addr : std_logic_vector(7 downto 0); signal output : std_logic_vector(3 downto 0); signal wren : std_logic;   component pcycle port( address : in std_logic_vector(7 downto 0); clock : in std_logic; data : in std_logic_vector(3 downto 0); wren : in std_logic; q : out std_logic_vector(3 downto 0) ); end component; begin ram : pcycle PORT MAP ( address => addr, clock => clock_50, data => data, wren => wren, q => output ); process(CLOCK_50) is begin if rising_edge(CLOCK_50) then if counter < 25000000 then counter <= counter + 1; else clk_1Hz <= not clk_1Hz; counter <= 0; end if; end if; end process; LED <= clk_1Hz; AUX <= clk_1Hz; process(AUX) is begin if clk_1Hz = '1' then AUX_LEDO <= '0'; wren <= '1'; data <= "1111"; -- data 1111 is stored in addr 00000000 addr <= "00000000"; else AUX_LEDO <= '1'; wren <= '0'; addr <= "00000000"; DAT_LED <= output;

above VHDL code used to store data in ram which I created using ip integrator...

 

from mmap import mmap   MAPSIZE = 10 offset_mem = 0xFFFF0000   with open("/dev/mem", "r+b") as f: mem = mmap(f.fileno(), MAPSIZE, offset=offset_mem) packed_reg = mem[:] print(packed_reg.encode('hex'))    

this python code is used to collect data using python. i get address of on chip memory as 0xFFFF0000 from this link. https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/hps/cyclone-v/hps.html#topic/sfo1410068453374.html

 

but the output of python doesn't shows the correct data. at positio 0xFFFF0000

Hi

Please let us know what is the output obtained by the code at position 0xFFFF0000.

Regards
