60 Selection of memory model or implementation memory is now made on minsoc_bench_defines.v. It is done by a definition instead of including different files for simulation.

minsoc_bench_defines.v definition of reset level was not correct. It based the level decision on defineds POSITIVE_RESET or NEGATIVE_RESET, which couldn't be defined by then, since minsoc_defines.v is not included in minsoc_bench_defines.v. The decision has been moved to minsoc_bench.v and made a localparam instead of a definition.

58 Standard definitions depended on implementation order. Now, this should be solved.

minsoc_bench_defines.v: when setting reset to be positive (`define POSITIVE_RESET), NEGATIVE_RESET is undefined. This override the implementation order, so that independent of it, POSITIVE_RESET will be used.

minsoc_defines.v: when setting GENERIC_FPGA, FPGA_TAP and FPGA_CLOCK_DIVISION are undefined. This way, even if FPGA_TAP would come prior to GENERIC_TAP on the correspondent implementation, GENERIC_TAP would still be selected.

IMPORTANT: GENERIC_MEMORY must still be implemented first on minsoc_onchip_ram.v, because FPGA's memory is automatically selected from other definitions and cannot be undefined a priori. Since some other memory types can be selected, there is no trivial solution. However, this shouldn't be a big problem, since the beginning of this file will probably not be modified.

57 If a FPGA manufacturer is selected, the FPGA families of other manufacturers are automatically ignored.

Some updated to comments.

CLOCK_DIVISOR back to 5. The number does not matter much, but 1 is a bad standard number, since it should never be selected. Comment says, use NO_CLOCK_DIVISION instead.

Changing standard FPGA back to Xilinx and Spartan3A. I'm only doing this because the synthesis examples page of wiki still assume this FPGA to be standardly selected.

52 Altera ALTPLL Megafunction Instantiation javieralso 3146d 14h /minsoc/trunk/rtl/verilog/
33 Start-up Starter, included in the MinSoC top file, has been updated to three-phase instruction output; instruction assertion, acknowledge assertion, and next instruction with acknowledge deassertion.

Previously it was two-phase with next instruction, instruction assertion and acknowledge assertion together, and acknowledge deassertion.

That is required by the new Wishbone master interface used by OpenRISC release 3.

31 Adaption to or1200_r3. It is still important to change or1200_defines.v:
-`define OR1200_BOOT_ADR 32'hf0000100 to `define OR1200_BOOT_ADR 32'h00000100

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 3512d 10h /minsoc/trunk/rtl/verilog/
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.
rfajardo 3591d 22h /minsoc/trunk/rtl/verilog/
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 3656d 21h /minsoc/trunk/rtl/verilog/
16 Further initialization improvement of non-used signals, setting interrupt signals to 0 if module is not used. rfajardo 3662d 00h /minsoc/trunk/rtl/verilog/
14 Wishbone error signal of Ethernet core was not tied to ground if Ethernet was disabled. Solved now. rfajardo 3671d 01h /minsoc/trunk/rtl/verilog/
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 3674d 17h /minsoc/trunk/rtl/verilog/
7 Some changes:
-wb_cabs removed from minsoc_top.v and minsoc_tc_top.v
-added reset polarity control to minsoc_defines.v through:
-POSITIVE_RESET
-NEGATIVE_RESET
-minsoc_onchip_ram_top.v does not use
minsoc_onchip_ram.v oe signals (output enable) anymore,
which are implemented as tristate buffers. Now
minsoc_onchip_ram_top.v has a generated MUX, which
has an arbitrary number of inputs and 1 output.
Input are the internal output of the onchip_rams,
output the wb_dat_o.
rfajardo 3702d 20h /minsoc/trunk/rtl/verilog/
6 No implementation relevant changes.

Testbench used generic memory from minsoc_onchip_ram.v has been changed to reflect the correct model of the FPGA's onchip rams: address register and write accesses are sensitive to rising clock edge.

Documentation updated to reflect another trial and next steps to speed up the memory access from 2 clocks to 1. The negated clock approach is not standard. The right way to do it would be to use the wishbone signals cti and bte and change the minsoc_onchip_ram_top.v.

2 First commit of project. Beta status:
