Serial communication with PC in Spartan 3E starter kit

Hi. I want a PC communication with Spartan 3E starter kit. I have develop my algorithm and it works perfectly. I have developed this in Sysgen. I want to take data in my PC. So any one can suggest how to communicate it. Is any one having the verilog or VHDL code for it.

 

Thank you,

Krunal

Hi Krunar,

 

I am going to try and give you some hints in some direction even though your info is very sparse. Note I'm not a proffesional but mearly a hobbyist in this business.. 

 

From what I understand, you have developed some IP-core with SysGen to be used in signal-processing applications. Your system has not got a main controller yet? If not, maybe this is your main problem.

To be able to give input/output, control parameters maybe you should find yourself a soft-CPU (take a pick Microblaze, Picoblaze, OpenRisc or other) and hook up your ip-core as a perephiral on a bus. This would give better possiblity to test and control your core.

 

If you are still convinced that you don't need a main-controller, I would still recommend using a Picoblaze for serving your serial connection.

For example a simple hard-coded RS-232-lite that would connect to a PC for input/output is supplied as an example with the Picoblaze-source(look for rx/tx files) and it is for free. 

 

Good luck!

Magnus
