This is a modular IO component. With this modular IP design tou can get multiple (by default up to 8) IO channels. Each channel has a RX and TX FIFO with depth 31 bytes. The FIFO is based on the Versatile FIFO also available from OpenCores. All IO channels have a common bus interface compatible with 16550 UART. This makes software integreation easier

This IP support many different types of IO

  • 16550 compatible UART
  • LED control
  • RGB LED control
  • RC5 compatible IR receiver
Other can be added
