Lab 12 Part II Noise Filtering

Honored Contributor II

Hi everyone! 


I've been trying to make noise filter for input mic as requested in Lab 12 but I've been having some really strange issues. 

Lab link 

So what I do is whenever I got input signal I divide it by 8 and write it in FIFO. On the output I always keep sum of all FIFO registers. 

The strange thing that happens is, that it is working perfectly fine when I am not dividing by anything (Just outputing the sum of all registers), and when I am dividing by 8 I only get noise as the output. 


Does anybody have any idea what might cause this issue ? 


Here is my code in case you couldn't understand what I've been saying :D 



// synopsys translate_off `timescale 1 ps / 1 ps // synopsys translate_on module noise_filter # ( parameter DATA_WIDTH=24, parameter N = 4 ) ( input write, input clock, input data_in, output done, output sum ); reg summed; reg counter; reg isDone; reg fifo ; integer i; initial begin counter = 0; summed = 0; isDone = 0; for(i = 0; i < 2**N; i= i+1) begin fifo = 0; end end always @(posedge clock) begin if(isDone == 1) begin isDone <= 0; end else if(write == 1) begin counter <= counter + 1; fifo <= {{N{1'b0}}, data_in}; summed <= summed - fifo + data_in ; isDone <= 1; end end assign sum = summed; assign done = isDone; endmodule  


So long story short, this outputs just random noise, and with this change  

fifo <= data_in; summed <= summed - fifo + data_in;  


it works perfect. 


Thanks everyone!
