What are you advertising here? Surely DCD are not trying to /sell/ this core? It's a UART - it's not exactly revolutionary. If you have a CPU in your FPGA (soft or hard macro), you will have UARTs available - free (well, included in the price) and well-integrated. If you want something different, OpenCores has got about 20 different UART implementations. And of course anyone who can't knock up their own UART in short order has no business doing FPGA design.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
