Xilinx xfft v9.1 error

Hello guys.

I come to ask for some help, because something is driving me crazy.

I have been trying to configure an xfft block on a Zynq Ultrascale+.

I did a quick SW test to verify everythig works fine, and to understand how config params are sent via AXI_S.

Everything is apparently working.

I configured the block with this params:

- 1 Channel

- Transform Length 4096

- TCF - 250 MHz

- Pipelined, Streaming I/O

- Run Time COnfiguration Transform Length

- Data Format: Fixed Point

- Scaled

- Truncation

- I: 16 bits, Q: 16 bits

- Natural Order

- Real Time

- 5 Stages using BR for Data and Phase Factors.

And my truncation values (AXIS Config) is [0 0 0 1 1 1] -> (Nfft = 2^12)

 

 

So trying with this config (And many others), I have been comparing xfft Xilinx block, matlab fft() and xfft C Model, and these are the results:

My testing signal is a simple real tone (A*sin(wt)), and as you can see, lower freqs using the xfft block are a mess and completely unnacceptable for my purpose.

Not only assymmetrical, but different between C Model and xfft RTL block.

 

Any idea of what could be causing this, lets say, "thing"?

 

Any idea is appreciated. Thanks!

Diego.

Hi

Can you share the design? Is very useful include the version of Matlab and Xilinx tools that you are using.

Re: Xilinx xfft v9.1 error

The design for this test is nothing but the xfft block and 2 dmas to get dataout and into the zynq.

Matlab 2018b

Vivado 2018.2

 

It seems to be a problem with pipeline truncation. Apparently not every trunc value is allowed.

If I set trunc values to [2 2 2 2 2 2], mistaken values are reduced down to -80 dBm.

I guess it's enough, but any other truncation value gets this error :/

 

Diego.
