10:15 --- Bottom-up Design in Altera
Stratix II FPGA - CH Ting
"I am trying to layout designs the way
they ought to be, taking advantages of the two-dimensional structures
inherently in an FPGA. Altera tools in Quartus II allows one to assign logic to
specific locations, and I will show how to use these tools. I filled the entire
FPGA with a gigantic 2D shift register array with 50x816 registers. I am
implementing the search engine Chuck Moore did for me a long time ago. It has
32 comparator arrays, each of which has 200 comparators. I can put in an eP32
core to control the comparator arrays to facilitate software development of
searching algorithms. I hope I can get enough things done for a real
demonstration at the meeeting."
Noon --- Lunch
Some folks bring
their lunch, some folks go to Togos.
13:30 --- SD Flash Card Interface -
Dave will discuss his plans for Forth code software that
interfaces an embedded microcontroller to a SD Flash card for data logging
14:30 --- Break
15:00 --- Random Access
