Welcome to Programmable Logic DesignLine!
We recently published a four-part series of articles focused on validating designs that incorporate specific technologies in Xilinx FPGAs. Each of the following articles offers specific techniques for addressing the challenges of debugging and validating a particular application, with a focus on saving time and increasing the quality of your design.
Part 1: Using a core-assisted approach to accelerate the debug of FPGA-based DDR II interfaces.
Part 2: How to speed FPGA debug with measurement cores and a mixed-signal oscilloscope.
Part 3: Fast insight into MicroBlaze-based FPGA designs with the MicroBlaze Trace Core (MTC).
Part 4: How to use the Trace Port on PowerPC 405 cores.
