Just stumbled over this on twitter (#FPGA) - making use of this right now.
I resolved the conflict a cruder way - the addresses are compared, and if they match then the datain is registered to place on the dataout of the other port, and the enable of the read port is inhibited (don't know if I explained that correctly or not!).
This was discussed briefly on the Programmable Planet a couple months back, in the context of building a [1W+2R] memory from the "simple dual port" [1W+1R] block RAMs that are available in the Lattice ICE40 family.
I would post a direct link, unfortunately the Programmable Planet was recently destroyed by the UBM division of the Vogon Constructor Fleet in order to make way for a new subspace billboard.
As of the moment, Google has a cached copy of the thread here:
@Brian: This is not the same as using 2 simple dual ports. There both RAMs must be written every time to maintain integrity.
In this case is special because true dual port can write one port and read a different address simultaneously on the other port. The write to the second port is a write thru only if the addresses are the same.
Therewfore I think there is no way to make a true dual port using 2 simple dual ports because for writes both addresses have to be the same.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
