Hi all,In another thread I asked if there was a limitation on the number of components (IP) in Qsys and I was told there was not. So now I created a test project to see how many UARTs I could add to it and I quickly realized that I don't want to add say 50 or 100 UARTs manually to Qsys. The UARTs will have the same settings except for the name. Is there a way to add and connect (clock, reset, external conduit) 50 or 100 UARTs to Qsys automatically? This is for MAX V or MAX 10 devices. Thanks
Write a TCL script. Create a simple system with e.g. 1 UART, then use the "Save_script.tcl" script to get an idea of what you need to produce, and then write your own script.http://www.alterawiki.com/wiki/qsys_scripts
--- Quote Start --- You won't be able to fit 100 uarts in a CPLD. Depending on what your needs are, you might be better off with something like a Cyclone V FPGA. --- Quote End --- MAX 10 has up to 50K LE and I believe a UART uses less than 200. So there is quite a bit of capability before you need a Cyclone.
