hi Max,

What is the exact differnece between FPGA and microcontroller ?  Also for FPGA vs CPLD ?

 

Ashok

 

 

 

 

 

Rookie

I *was* an APP blogger...  Now I'm an EE Times blogger ;)

Blogger

Look forward to tomorrow.

Rookie

I think this is more indepth that other presentations.

Rookie

Good start to the FPGA presentation.

Rookie

I've done some basic FPGA design.

Rookie

Automotive EV motor control

Rookie

yes I have experience

Rookie

Hello sir i am new to fpga and want to learn it can i learn it?

 

Rookie

You win Max I give up the FPGA's are appearing everywhere. I just bought a Parallella board (Adapteva) with the Zynq 7010 on it (Dual Arm7 A9) with FPGA and bells, whistles and christmas cake on it.

I'll re-do your course and pay more attention this time -- OK?

Rookie

Doing more designs for FPGAs that ASICs.

Rookie

Designed with FPGAs - for video processing.

Rookie

Finally got time to catch up.

Rookie

Good to hear Max again!

Rookie

Consumer applications

Rookie

Preference to programmable fabric, no core programming

Rookie

Have experience with FPGA, CPLD devices and their programming

Rookie

long experience

Rookie

I've designed with Xilinx FPGAs. However, the new line of FPGAs have much more complexity. This is a excellent course on pointing out there architectures and their technologies. Thank you for broadcasting this course.

all programmable devices

Rookie

good material presentation

Rookie

Thanks for the session

Rookie

Good Morning from San Jose, CA.

Rookie

Good morning everyone from CA

Rookie

Good morning everyone! We'll get started on Part 2 of our FPGA course in about 30 minutes.

Rookie

A fine introduction to FPGA's Max.  I'm hoping the rest of this week will be just as good.

Rookie

I think FPGA Design is the future of intelligent systems, like Robotics.

Rookie

I have used FPGA's in the past, but not much.

Rookie

HI Max, Thanks for a great lecture. I had to listen to the archive due to a tech issue but it let me rewind on a few points you made.  I have a historical background in uC and DSP and am now looking to learn FPGA to increase my skill set. Looking forward to the rest of your lectures.

Rookie

Thanks Max; great lecture as usual.

Rookie

I've never designed with FPGA

Rookie

On slide 10, what does PLL stand for and its function?

Rookie

my background currently is in unmanned aerial vehicles i.e. Predator, Reaper and Avenger unmanned aircraft.

Previously worked in the cell phone industry.

Manufacturing Test i.e. Test Automation, fixture design and software design for testing aviation electronice (avionics).

Rookie

every time Max says 'jelly-bean' ICs I think Android Jelly Bean...

Rookie

I'm mostly software (embedded, systems level, drivers, etc).  Never used FPGAs, but go back to 8080 (and PDP-8) days. 

Rookie

A rather late greetings to all.   (Forgot about the session today...  Thanks EETimes for archiving this!)


Have heard Max before - looking forward to hearing him again!

Rookie

waiting for the answers till tommorow. thank u for ythe session max. bye.

Rookie

do allthe fpga anufacturers use antifuse for alone or is there any other means to program the interconnects?

Rookie

I heard that FPGA are used in the airplanes for saving the critical parameters. aren't these devices susceptible to change in temp and do they operate in the same speed and accuracy even in high altitudes?

Rookie

missed the live session!!!! thanks for the archive.

Rookie

Sriram.V Embedded developer. used xilinx spartan.

Rookie

I missed such awesome lecture b.c of confusion in time zone. But Thanks for the archive. I am really grateful.
from Italy

Rookie

I was stuck on a O.S. update problem and missed live lecture... Gosh bless the recording.

Thanks Max and the UBM team, looking forward fo the next classes.

 

Rookie

Max, Thanks for everything. I hope to find time to read

BeBOP to the BOOLEAN BOOGIE

thanks Max and EE Times. Rod. R.

Rookie

Slide 18, input "C" has no connection.

Rookie

Student, just keeping up on the latest...

Rookie

Not designed with FPGAs before.

Rookie

Hello from sunny SE Lake Simcoe, Ontario Canada.

Competing seminars this week.

Rookie

@mrxfrombombay: I will ask the IT guys but I wouldn't hold your breath :-)

For the moment you'll just have to stream it from thsi page

@erhk: Altera's Programmable SoCs and Xilinx Zynq SoCs are indeed similar -- both boast an ARM Cortex-A( dual core hard core microcontroller. Both hav eon-chip memory and peripherals and programmable digital fabric. In both cases the ARM core can communicate to the programmable fabric via AXI busses.

There are some differences, not the least that the programmable fabric is different -- and the DSP slices -- and stuff like that -- I'm not saying one is bbetter than the other -- just that there are differences. Also the Zynq has some programmable analog and 17 analog input pins and stuff

Hi Max,

Is it possible to make the audio recording of this session downloadable as well? 

Thanks,

Waseem

Rookie

Sorry learning is secondary to work.

 

Rookie

@cryptkicks I'll pass this feedback on to the IT folks (having said that then never listen to me :-) 

I was looking for Altera's Cyclone 5 SoC. Is Zynq SoC is the similar platform ?

Rookie

@Bill: "I have real work to do right now"

LOL Make sure you visit www.AllProgrammablePlanet.com to see what's going on there

The audio shows up in a player widget once archived, but a link to the actual .MP3 file to allow a simple download and save would be nice. Otherwise they play live but don't let me save them to disk or MP3 player for offline usage.

Rookie

@Bill: Check out the the note above this chat window:

 

The audio player will load automatically when the lecture audio begins. Some corporate networks block the sort of streaming audio content used by this player. Please make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Flash for your Internet browser via Adobe's web site. If the player loads but you are not able to hear the live audio, you may still be able to hear the archived audio after the live program begins by returning to this page.

 

Will have to listen to it tonight as I have real work to do right now.

I am really interested in this for some of my future test fixture designs.

Rookie

@bill: The audio is up now -- right under the headline their's a little audio button/ribbon thing -- click on that and you should hear my dulcet tones (make sue you've downloaded the slides so you can follow along)

@Max, ok I can hear it now

Rookie

@bill: Hang on -- just checking

I was signed up but could never get the audio to play

 

Rookie

Max when will the archive be available?

 

Rookie

@davidwr -- sorry you missed it, but you can listen to the archived version and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow

Not designed with FPGA systems -- looking at it for specialty processes.

Rookie

Hello from Sunny SE Lake Simcoe, Ontario Canada.

Had to miss the live -- competing seminars this week. Hopefully will catch it live tomorrow.

Rookie

My pleasure -- hope to see you tomorrow

Thanks for the seminar

 

Rookie

@matriley: Thsi is a great question -- it's one a lot of people ask -- wrappling your brain around this is really important when it comes to understanding the other stuff we will be looking at later this week

In an antifuse-based or Flash-based FPGA, the LUTS are programmed using antifuse or falsh cells - -these FPGAs will stil lhave blocks of on-chip RAM for use by the design/application

In an SRAM-based FPGA, we have blocks of SRAM for the application, and then all of the configuration cells are also implemented using SRAM technology

@matriley -- no -- the SRAM bloks are used to store on-chip allpication data, act as FIFOs, and suchlike

 

Thanks tmka -- C U tomorrow :-)

Regarding the presentation: are the SRAM blocks on slide 10 the SRAM used to configure the LUTs? 

Rookie

@Max Thanks for the lecture and chat! See you tomorrow.

Rookie

OK -- lots to do and not enough time to do it all in -- I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow

Walter -- I think crowd-funding a Zynq board could be avery interesting idea. (I cannot wait for my Parallella board to arrive -- I added my $99 to the pot -- why not wait for that board?)

Thanks for the sugestions... I'll search in www.AllProgrammablePlanet.com

Rookie

That low-end Zynq would be great! How long will we have to wait? 

Seriously Max, the Papilio has only 500 "Kgates". Enough room for a Microblaze I think (I use Altera, so I don't know precisely), but not for complex stuff of the kind that people who wants a Cortex-A9 plus HW accelerators like.

I was really getting interested in crowd-funding a Zynq board (just for the rest of us who cannot afford a ZedBoard!), similar to the Parallella case. Anyone likes the idea?

Rookie

Re How do I go about making a DVI input, provided that I have to manufacture it myself?

Again -- that's one for All Programmable Planet -- there are all sorts of experts there who knwo all sorts of things -- the interesting thing is seeing them all get into a debate about something

Thanks Max, good session

Rookie

Good idea, I need to use AllProgrammablePlanet.com more often.
How do I go about making a DVI input, provided that I have to manufacture it myself? Would TFP401 DVI receiver chip be a good choice?

Rookie

Thansk to everyone for joining in today -- I really hope you enjoyed it -- there's a lot of confusion in this area and I think that it's really useful to build up things slowely -- I'm very much looking forward to tomorrow

Looking forward to tomorrow, and especially Wednesdays session on Tools and Methodologies ...

Rookie

@tmka -- to get answers to real-world problems, post questions at www.AllProgrammablePlanet.com

thanks, see you tommorrow

Re the question: "And what are all the applications available for a SOC(FPGA along with ARM core)"

I woudl say "limited only by your imagination" -- the ARM core can be used for decision making tasks, the programmable fabric can be used for massively parallel data-processing. There's a lot of interest t ouse these in machine vision applications like automotive savety systems. I knw oone gut who is implementing an artificial neural network ... and what about indudstrial control systems...

The Zynq is an interesting device.  Like many others, I would like to get my hands on one.  The cost is an issue.

Rookie

I wasn't aware of the fuse types, so I did learn new stuff. Except it's knowledge that you simply "take in". That can't be said once you get to actually programming and have problems with Vhdl/Verilog. So I am eagerly awaiting the next lectures and will read up on your articles. I am trying to make a dvi video capturing system and I am at the stage of learning PSRAM and serial/network communication.

Rookie

Re: Even the "cheap" ZedBoard is in the range of $300-400

I agree they aren't cheap, but the processing capacity and number of interfaces and "stuff" they offer is AMAZING

If you want cheap, you can get a Papilio FPGA board for about $35 (go to www.AllProgrammablePlanet.com and search for "Speciall Offer"

@mrDiode : I dont think there is much technology gap while you are modelling your design.

 

Rookie

My understanding is tha tboth Altera and Xilinx are talking about a low-end Zynq for $15 (when purchased in quantity)

Thanks MAX.

And what are all the applications available for a SOC(FPGA along with ARM core)

 

Rookie

for those (like me) who joined late ... the 'archived' session is available now by clicking the play button on the audio player above.   Thanks to Max and Brian. 

Rookie

Re the archives button -- I think thsi talk will become available almost immediately -- certainly oin the next hour or so

Zynq is an interesting device, but unfortunately is quite costly for the entry-level reprogrammable market (in my opinion). Even the "cheap" ZedBoard is in the range of $300-400 (academic/regular price). If Xilinx supposedly wants to enforce a new reprogrammable paradigm, then why just the focus on the high end of the market? (same goes to Altera). 

Rookie

do we really decrease the technology gap when ASIC are prototyped using FPGA  ?

Rookie

xilinx provides a tools, xilinx power analyser and xilinxs power stimation, that you consider this tools have good performances to analyse power in fpga?

@tmka: "this one does not raise any questions at the moment."

Sp either I am a great lecturer ... or you already knew this stuff -- or I didn;t make any sense at all :-)

THx for your lecture......Max

 

Rookie

@H S -- re "Initially I tried to port ARM core on FPGA."

Onlt the ARM Cortex-M1 core was designed to be immplemented efficiently using the FPGA programmable fabric -- that is, as a soft core. The thing about the Zynq is that the ARM Cortex-A9 is implemented as a hard core which makes it much more efficiemnt (lower power, greater performance) than a soft core...

I found the archives button.......when will I be able to listen to this lecture?

 

@Max I'll definitely have more questions after the next lectures, this one does not raise any questions at the moment.

Rookie

tmka -- "wich a lecturer that can be asked questions"

ask away :-)

this is other audio?

 

Rookie

Thanks MAX, for your fact regarding the use of ARM core by XILINX.

Can you please point out the one usage of using ARM along with FPGA.

Because Initially I tried to port ARM core on FPGA.

 

Rookie

@Daniel: re your comment "i consider that the toggle rate of sram is the most problem wich consumes more power" -- the thing about the SRAM-based configuration cells is that they are only toggled/loaded when the board is powered up and the device is loaded/configured -- after that they just sit there configuring the device...

I don;t think it's true to say that "FPGAs are mainly used for prototyping ASICs" -- I think it's true to say that a large proportion of ASIC designs are prototyped using FPGAs, but if you look at the vast numbers of FPGAs sold they are in applications like communications, backplane, infrastructure, automotvre, industrial control...

@jnhong Thanks. I am looking for a class/1on1 rather than reading material. With a lecturer that can be asked questions.

Rookie

flash-based FPGAs can be used in aerospatial applications? 

Rookie

i consider that the toggle rate of sram is the most problem wich consumes more power

Max ... 65nm vs. smaller techs ... I believe your power consumption analysis is correct .. for SRAM vs Flash

Rookie

Looking forward to the rest of the week! Cheers for now everyone!

Thanks Max! I was reading a paper, where 4-Input LUT compared to other k-input LUT showed better in terms of area and delay. Does this change when it is more than 10-input LUT ? 

Rookie

I need to know more about SoC vs FPGA ?

 

Rookie

Hi H S Sriharsha -- Xilinx licebnced the use of the ARM Cortex-A9 sual-core micrcontroller subststem and then implemented it on their Zynq device along with a bunch of regulat FRGA fabric (and other stuff)

Max, thanks for the insight into SRAM v Flash.

Rookie

@ PREM BHARATH : FPGA's are mainly used fro PROTOTYPING ASIC's .

 

Rookie

@mrDiode - you can't reprogram an ASIC and you would need to order a large batch to get ASIC chips. you could do FPGA manufacturing yourself because you can easily buy them in small quantaties.

Rookie

I like the Tabular architecture concept -- very interesting -- but I haven;t heard anything from them for quite a while now.

Max, Thank you for the lecture.  See you tomorrow.

Rookie

tmka -- but also check Lattice, Microsemi as alternatives

Rookie

Re which consumes more power -- SRAM or FLASH -- that's an interesting one. If you take two devuces created at the same process node -- say 65nm, then the SRAM will consume more power. But the FLASH devices are typically 1 to 2 process nodes behind. So most Flash devuces today are at 65nm or higher, whil estate-of-the-art SRAM devuces are at 28nm. In this case, for the same number of gates, the SRAM will consume less power I think.

@joeaki : You being a designer, no need to worry on internal programming techbiques.

Just utilize the entire resources properly.

Rookie

I learnt the major difference of when and when not to use an FPGA. ;)

 

Rookie

as of last week or so...

Max thanks for the session, we understood the various kinds of programable devices through the introduction 

Rookie

tmka -- go to Altera and Xilinx websites, look in their training sections.  Lots of free workshops available.

Rookie

I don't consider myself a rookie anymore...

Dear Max,

How does ARM and FPGA's are used together to make it a SOC?

Rookie

@ Max, how one decides which one to use, antifuse/sram/flash??

Rookie

what is your opinion about Tabula 3d FPGAs? 

Rookie

Are there any good online FPGA workshops where I could learn FPGA/VHDL basics and move towards video processing?

Rookie

Thanks Max and Brian

Why are the PLLs inside FPGS condsidered more noisy? Is it true?

I missed the lecture is a recording available

 

I need to look to look more closely at Xilinx Spartan3 FPGA configuration options.

Thanks for your presentation. I would like to know about how fpgas are used in the jtag emulators?

 

Rookie

Did this introduction clear up any confusion for anyone?

 

HOw to ask questions via chat session?

Rookie

Thanks Max, (I will hear more of today's session on the archives... )  and will be on time for the followup sessions.

 

 

Rookie

Hi Max, thanks for the presentation

one question: what is the difference between ASIC and FPGA ? could I consider FPGA is one step before manufacturing using ASIC or it could be a standalone production choice  ?

 

Rookie

Which consumes more power: SRAM or Flash?

 

Rookie

Do you consider this course an introductory course? Are there others on eetimes university at a higher level?

Rookie

Thansk sdennis -- it's still the only electronics book in the world to feature a seafood gumbo recipe :-)

Rookie

Had to reload Which slide are we on?

 

Rookie

SRAMs can hold the bits unless configured but Flash loses the configurable bits.

Rookie

companies which use Flash+SRAM based technology for FPGAs

but the process for flash is a problem. processing for SRAMs are the same. 

Rookie

Looks like Max has been cut off at my end

CEO

flash too can be reconfigured as microcontrollers use flash RAm? right ?

Click on the pla button

Download today's slide deck link

 

Rookie

no slides, no audio, no joy.  Sorry I missed it

 

Rookie

@ Jeraz, I think it depends on the kind of application you're using. If you want reconfigurable you might wanna go for SRAM

Rookie

atmel uses and xilinx too uses flash based CPLDs

@BILL T, ARM-based SoC designs for consumer electronics devices.

Can you explain more on what you doing.

Rookie
