i have porting one board from CYCLONE to MAX 10.
in my design contain ADC interface then the data will transfer to NIOS through DMA.
so we have created some control signal to do handshake between FPGA and NIOS.
referred this document which has one signal dataavilable. whenever my FIFO having data which will trigger the signal to NIOS then the NIOS will read it.
but now i m using QUARTS 15.0 where data available signal is not available in avalon memory map interface .
so what is the replacement signal for that.
1.dataavilable will go to NIOS from FPGA [need alternate signal for this]
Avalon interface document [2010 edition]-126.96.36.199 section flow control .
2.read signal will reach FPGA from NIOS.[this is available]
Reply me INTEL please
That signal has been deprecated from the Avalon memory-mapped standard. I don't know what FIFO IP you are using or if you are building your own, but usually there would be a "not empty" signal or a status register to read to see if data is available.
If you use Avalon streaming instead of memory-mapped, you can make use of the valid and ready signals that are part of that standard for data streaming in and out of the FIFO.
Hope this message find you well, please do let if the issues still persist, and we would be more than happy to look into it or any other clarification that we can help you with.
1.not empty signal is not available in avalon memory mapped slave interface.
2.status register method - means using PIO register and writing the value to 1 after FPGA FIFO got data.please confirm these point.
we need below signals in avalon memory mapped slave interface
4.data available /not empty/status register concept[please explain]
Apologies for the long wait and thank you for your patients.
Back to the initial question you have on the replacement for dataavailable signals, alternatively we woudl recommend to use the Avalon streaming as mention.
Attached is the user guide on how to implement the ADC on Max 10 devices.
Just to add on, for the second part of the question, the 'not ready signals' is readily available in the Avalon-st
As for the second part of the question, more details of the signals as explained below:
- chip select (https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/manual/mnl_avalon_spec.pdf#page=67&zoom=100,0,0)
- read enable ((https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/manual/mnl_avalon_spec.pdf#page=67&zoom=100,0,0))
- read data (signal available in avalon-mm and are required)
- data available (as mention has been deprecated, recommends using avalon-st)
