28 1) Period calculations through 1/freq on testbench use now a numerator definition in order to extract nano seconds of the divisions. Previously the number 1e9 was being repeatedly typed as numerator, now FREQ_NUM_FOR_NS is used.

2) There is a possibility of enabling the GENERIC_CLOCK_DIVISION for the testbench, so that you can test the outcome of different system clock inputs and internal clock adjustments. To do so, NO_CLOCK_DIVISION definition of minsoc_bench_defines.v has to be commented out.
-This also requested the initialization of the internal registers clk_int and clock_divisor of the minsoc_clock_manager.v, this is made by the testbench in case the NO_CLOCK_DIVISION definition is NOT defined.

3) Howto part of implementing Ethernet for the Spartan3E Starter Kit has been completely described. (Chapter 7, subitem 3)

27 Simulation library fpga_memory_primitives.v had an issue with its lpm_ram_dq module, which did not output its data.

The data was being output to doq instead of q, the declared output. doq was also not defined anywhere else.

Icarus Verilog did not detect this, because Verilog-2001 allows internal wires to be used without being defined. To detect this errors, one can define "`default_nettype none". After doing this, Icarus Verilog detected that error and nothing else.

doq changed to q, error corrected.

26 On version 34 of the Advanced Debug System the signal debug_tdo_o from the altera_virtual_jtag has changed to debug_tdo_i.

This commit adapts minsoc_top.v accordingly.
rfajardo 4029d 12h /minsoc/
25 Updated the howto document to adapt minsoc to a new update of the Advanced Debug System.
-Compilation of adv_jtag_bridge needs a Makefile adjustment.
-Simulation and Implementation have to remove a definition on the adbg_defines.v file.

Both adjustments simply removes the new JSP (JTAG Serial Port), which has been included in the new release of the Advanced Debug System.
rfajardo 4034d 04h /minsoc/
24 E-mail in the documentation has been corrected. rfajardo 4097d 16h /minsoc/
23 Paragraph minor changes, used in announcement and double checked. rfajardo 4101d 21h /minsoc/
22 Status progress and howto pdf documents were not commited, there now. rfajardo 4101d 22h /minsoc/
21 Including the first draft project documentation. How to and status progress docs are now separate from documentation. rfajardo 4101d 23h /minsoc/
20 minsoc_defines.v had a semicolon at the end of the two reset polarity definitions.

minsoc_top had a signal array for two different signals which was for backward compatibility. The compatible debugging module is so old that there is no reason for keeping it.

Documentation has been updated to better explain how to use the definitions files, minsoc_defines.v and or1200_defines.v. An example for Altera devices has been added too.

19 Documentation update. How To: 7) Examples:
-Spartan 3E Starter Kit no Ethernet has been already tested and is known to work.
-Spartan 3E Starter Kit with Ethernet not yet.
-change of sw/support/orp.ld cannot be done by only commenting and uncommenting line, the instruction, documentation line, which said so has been removed.
-Further possibilities -> Further area optimization possibilities.
rfajardo 4140d 03h /minsoc/
18 Deprecated comments removed from the file listing files. rfajardo 4172d 04h /minsoc/
17 Ethernet testbench speed penalty solved. Now Ethernet of testbench and minsoc can be enabled by only uncommenting `define ETHERNET on minsoc_defines.v.

send_mac, get_mac and uart_send tasks have been included/improved. Also a testbench, which works for both included firmwares is added. (eth and uart)

If ETHERNET is defined for the SoC, both firmwares will complete successfully. If not, the eth firmware will stall when trying to access the Ethernet module.
rfajardo 4173d 23h /minsoc/
16 Further initialization improvement of non-used signals, setting interrupt signals to 0 if module is not used. rfajardo 4179d 02h /minsoc/
15 Including verified pinout for external spi flash on spartan3a dsp kit to its correspondent ucf constraint file. rfajardo 4179d 20h /minsoc/
14 Wishbone error signal of Ethernet core was not tied to ground if Ethernet was disabled. Solved now. rfajardo 4188d 03h /minsoc/
13 Updating spartan3e_starter_kit.ucf so that it does not deliver errors on mapping. Moreover it has been changed to off the shelf only have uart support. Ethernet support and generic JTAG can be added by uncommenting the corresponding lines. rfajardo 4189d 03h /minsoc/
12 1) spi_top.v:
-TX_NEGEDGE bug reported and recommended solution by Blaise Gassend. (Thank you)
2) minsoc howto extended to:
-synthesis of minsoc for Spartan3E Starter Kit with Ethernet
3) spartan3e_starter_kit.ucf changed:
-it had problems regarding pin definitions and IO logic types for mapping and place&route. Working flawless now.
rfajardo 4191d 19h /minsoc/
11 External interrupt processing was being run multiple times because:
-external level interrupts have to be cleared
-internal interrupt status register has to be cleared
Since internal interrupt status register was being cleared before external level interrupts clearance, these internal interrupt status was being overwritten inbetween.

-move status register reset to end of interrupt handler instead of beginning.

Testbench signal uart_srx initialized now.
rfajardo 4198d 23h /minsoc/
10 Added a file containing models for each FPGA memory instances used in or1200. The file is in bench/verilog/sim_lib/fpga_memory_primitives.v.

With it, people who change the or1200_defines.v inside of the project structure will still be able to simulate, using house-made models, not from manufacturers.

minsoc_bench.v had to be extended by the task, init_fpga_memory, to initialize the dual or two port memories instances of or1200. This has to be done based on the type of memory used, so many different instantiations based on definitions. Somehow or1200 expects all memory values to be 0 upon start, so this is necessary.
rfajardo 4212d 22h /minsoc/
9 Tiny change to testbench gain:
-uart_srx is now reg for future testbench serial input to SoC.
