Hi there,

  I created a text file and named it as .mif MIF file in the format as shown below 

DEPTH = 256; 
WIDTH = 16; 
ADDRESS_RADIX = HEX; 
DATA_RADIX = HEX; 
CONTENT
BEGIN
0 : 400, 400, 1F4, 14D, 0FA, 0C8, 0A6, 08E, 07D, 06F, 064, 05A, 053, 04C, 047, 042, 03E, 03A, 037, 034, 032, 02F, 02D, 02B, 029, 028, 026, 025, 023, 022, 021, 020, 01F, 01E, 01D, 01C, 01B, 01B, 01A, 019, 019, 018, 017, 017, 016, 016, 015, 15, 014, 014, 014, 013, 013, 012, 012, 012, 011, 011, 011, 010, 010, 010, 010 00F, 00F, 00F, 00F, 00E, 00E, 00E, 00E, 00E, 00D, 00D, 00D, 00D, 00D, 00C, 00C, 00C, 00C, 00C, 00C, 00C, 00B, 00B, 00B, 00B, 00B, 00B, 00B, 00A, 00A, 00A, 00A, 00A, 00A, 00A, 00A, 00A, 00A, 009, 009, 009, 009, 009, 009, 009, 009, 009, 009, 009, 008, 008, 008, 008, 008, 008, 008, 008, 008, 008, 008, 008, 008, 008, 007, 007, 007, 007, 007, 007, 007, 007, 007, 007, 007, 007, 007, 007, 007, 007, 007, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 006, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 005, 004, 004, 004 ;

Yup, you can use the format given online. However, the format you used was wrong, you should not include comma in the content. I'm able to add this .mif file after I had removed all of the comma.

Hi,

 

You have stored too many data in an address. Here is an example:

DEPTH = 32; -- The size of memory in words
WIDTH = 8; -- The size of data in bits 
ADDRESS_RADIX = HEX; -- The radix for address values 
DATA_RADIX = BIN; -- The radix for data values 
CONTENT -- start of (address : data pairs) 
BEGIN
00 : 00000000; -- memory address : data 
01 : 00000001; 
02 : 00000010; 
.
.
.
END;

 

Thanks and regards,

Ean

Hi Ean,

 

Thanks for replying for all my queries, I would like to bring your kind notice that i was able to create the .MIF file for the same program mentioned above with 45 datas but i could not create a .mif file for the above mentioned code with more data's. Moreover i went through the addressing of the .MIF file i created the file in that format but could not create, herewith i attach the snap shot of the addressing that is given in online.
