How to setup a wireless communication system between two FPGA boards

Hello, 

 

I'm totally new to FPGA. 

I need to develop a wireless communication system between two FPGA boards with high data rate. 

Do you have suggestions about this topic? 

Thank you very much!

Hi, 

 

Depends on what data rates you are looking for. Let us know more on this.

This sounds like a school project. Don't expect the folks here to do the work for you. Propose a design for what you need to do, try and implement it, and then, if you get stuck, come back and ask questions.

Dear b.ritesh, 

 

thanks for your answer. 

You are right, I forgot to mention the data rate. It should be at least 50Mbit/s. 

Do you have suggestions about components and transmission techniques that I could use? 

Thank you very much.

Dear ak6dn, 

 

it sounds like a school project, but it is not. 

I have used Wi-Fi and fiber optic transceiver with micro-controller, but I have no experience in the FPGA field.  

I don't want that the folks do the work for me, but I'm only asking suggestions to people that have a bigger experience in this field.

Did you Check this? 

http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking/000005725.html#a 

 

You may choose the components and transmission techniques based on your requirement. You may expect help for interfacing the component & FPGA device. When you used WIFI with micro-controller, (typically if the WIFI module has TCP/IP stack into it) the interface between WIFI module & Micro-controller would be a SPI. Are you looking for similar solution or is it something else?

I could use the 802.11n protocol. 

Can you link some document which shows how to connect a Wi-Fi module to an FPGA? 

Thank you for your help!

A low cost WiFi Module (With on-chip TCP/IP stack) 

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/esp8266 

 

And few examples that will walk through integrating WIFI module to FPGA

Hello,

It's been a few years since this thread has been active but I am trying to achieve wi-fi communication on a Cyclone V board. The links shared in the thread are no longer active so I was wondering if anyone could share some new resources?

Thanks in advance
