When using "uart" simple IP we encounter byte lost.
We than moved to "fifoed avalon uart" ver 13.2 which was in alterawiki page.
It solved our byte loss but only partly. When we use several UARTs at the same time, we still encounter byte loss.
We believe there is a bug in this IP sw/fw.
But soon after we started using it, about 2 weeks ago, it was removed from web site! It was in this site:
Is there any alternative ? Does Intel offer any functional UART with FIFO ?
That is strange.
Are you using link:
Did you try clicking :"
I've tried with both microsoft explorer and Google chrome. On clicking the zip it moves to another page with a long list of documents.
Is there any better IP or better version for using UART ?
Even with 13.2 we see very strange behaviour !
We configure it for 2048 bytes, yet after sending for example 200 bytes, we only find 64 bytes inside (even more strangely is that using the debuger we stop in fifo avalon we see that diff between rx_end and rx-start is only 1, and then doing continue in dubbger we get only 1 !
Is there any functional *FIFO* UART from Intel's IP ?
But how about other design examples?
For example i can't download this link: https://fpgawiki.intel.com/wiki/File:Modular_SGDMA_DE.zip and other from this page: https://forums.intel.com/s/createarticlepage?articleid=a3g0P0000005R2BQAU&artTopicId=0TO0P000000MWKB...
Will access to these files be restored?
Thanks, yes it works fine now.
There was a bug in latest (13.2) release in which the header file set size of fifo as 64, although we needed - and configured - a larger fifo in qsys.
On increasing this size, "bytes skiped issue" been solved.
