59 undefinition of NEGATIVE_RESET on minsoc_bench_defines.v cannot affect other inclusions of minsoc_defines.v. Instead, the testbench now works with the right reset level to avoid the implementation ordering problem. rfajardo 4172d 18h /minsoc/trunk
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.
rfajardo 4172d 18h /minsoc/trunk
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.

56 Macros for all Altera family devices and pll instantiation javieralso 4179d 17h /minsoc/trunk
55 Adjusting Makefiles to compile correctly with new firmware updates.

1) except.o not included into libsupport.a.
2) libsupport.a linked to except.o, now in correct order: ld libsupport.a except.o -o executable (not the other way around)
3) int.c was not being compiled because of a #ifdef which is not set anywhere

54 Moving spr_defs.h to or1200.h ConX. 4181d 03h /minsoc/trunk
53 Indentation, deleting redundant files and adding externals ConX. 4181d 04h /minsoc/trunk
52 Altera ALTPLL Megafunction Instantiation javieralso 4189d 18h /minsoc/trunk
51 sw/support/uart.c: Changing the order of writes to the Divisor Latch of UART. (Thanks Ramkumar) rfajardo 4196d 07h /minsoc/trunk
50 Removing unused firmware files, respective to or1ksim actually.

Removing the inclusion of the removed file mc.h in reset.S, probably required by or1ksim at some point.

Reworked except.S to use a macro instead of repeating the same procedure 16 times or so. Explanation added to the macro as a leading comment.
rfajardo 4208d 04h /minsoc/trunk
49 Language correction for README.txt. rfajardo 4210d 01h /minsoc/trunk
48 Clear some old docs that are already ported to MinSOC's Wiki ConX. 4210d 02h /minsoc/trunk
47 Firmware updated to work with gcc-4.5. It is actually working just fine and gcc-4.5 assembly code seems a lot cleaner.

I noticed that by increasing the free stack space for the interrupt handler by 130 made the resulting firmware not work. I assume it is because 130 is not aligned 130%4 = 2 and the stack simply does not work then. Instead I'm freeing the previous 116 plus 128 (for 32 registers as mentioned by Jeremy) and it works.
rfajardo 4211d 01h /minsoc/trunk
46 Including an explanation of what has to be updated on gpio to port it smoothly to minsoc. rfajardo 4211d 05h /minsoc/trunk
45 A more stable version ConX. 4211d 20h /minsoc/trunk
44 Fixing some bugs. But it still works only in Debian/Ubuntu ConX. 4211d 22h /minsoc/trunk
43 Making some changes to MinSOC install script ConX. 4212d 18h /minsoc/trunk
41 Including setup scripts to install all required tools to work with minsoc and to download all required sources. Thanks for the contribution of Xanthopoulos Constantinos. rfajardo 4217d 01h /minsoc/trunk
40 Commiting a contributions directory, which has raw contributions of users. These contributions still have to be adapted to the system in order to work well. However, some users are certainly able to work with these versions.

FAQ: -added new idea to circumvent onboard DLC9 cable problem for adv_jtag_bridge
INSTALL: -gives a hint on how to install the system for Windows
HOWTO: -explains what a ucf file is and how to create it

backend: now we have the first contribution of a ucf file for the ML509 board (thanks to Matthew Hick)

Documentation: THESIS.txt explains to users, willing to tweak/understand the inner behavior of the OR1200 implementation of OpenRISC, what to read in order to get this information.
rfajardo 4223d 00h /minsoc/trunk
39 FAQ:
-Adv_jtag_bridge self test fails?
-included now SoC flow mistakes
-forgetting to upload the bitfile
-leaving clock unconnected
-older information is now under "Known Issues" right below of SoC flow mistakes

Software:
-eth: included eth.h is from drivers and not from this directory. eth.h from this directory is old and has been removed.
-uart: included uart.h is from drivers and not from this directory. uart.h from this directory is old and has been removed.
rfajardo 4287d 17h /minsoc/trunk
38 Small update to HOWTO: advices now to also include the ucf (pinout) file, for forgetful people :-).

FAQ: Added another option (hint) as a solution for people with on-board Xilinx USB cables, which do not reset.

uart.c: now uses the IRQ line definition instead of the line number directly.
rfajardo 4322d 16h /minsoc/trunk
37 README.txt added, describing the installation and set-up processes. Also describing to use the FAQ or forum when you have problems and finally to read minsoc.pdf (the documentation) to understand the system after everything works, to know what to do next.

Clean-up of sw/utils, removing unused sources and files.

Update of sw/drivers/eth.c, direct casting to avoid compile warnings.

FAQ extended and with more links to the threads giving the solutions.

Synthesis examples inform that the firmware tweak for Spartan3E Starter Kit using Ethernet only works for system version up to 35.

minsoc.pdf and webpage now uses FPGA generic and specific codes instead of FPGA independent and dependent codes, because it suits it better.
rfajardo 4353d 03h /minsoc/trunk
36 utils: -adding a 32 to 8 bit Wishbone bridge to connect 8 bit modules to the MinSoC interconnect.
-adding a Linux driver for parallel cables for the adv_jtag_bridge. It circumvents the necessity of privilege to run adv_jtag_bridge with cables xpc3 and xess.

sw/support: support library has been made completely standalone. That means, it is now independent from uClib and/or newlib. Thanks to Wojciech A. Koszek for his contribution on this.

sw/drivers: a driver library has been included, which supply drivers for the OpenRISC timer; and for UART, Ethernet, I2C, and CAN modules from OpenCores.

sw/uart and sw/eth: they don't provide code to control the UART and Ethernet controllers anymore. They use the drivers library instead.

Documentation:
-FAQ extended:
-table of contents
-explanation of how to use the 32 to 8 bit Wishbone bridge
-how to make adv_jtag_bridge work without privilege requirement for xess or xpc3
-explanation of locking problem of xpc_usb cable
-explanation of what to do if the cable is built on-board
-INSTALL:
-patching of gdb only required if version is 6.8, explanation on FAQ now.
-HOWTO:
-instruct to compile drivers library
-remove line numbers information on what to edit, better leave it to be found only by the informed context.
-adv_jtag_bridge execution now without 'sudo'. Note included that 'sudo' is required for Linux and xess or xpc3. Reference to FAQ to avoid this requirement.
rfajardo 4353d 22h /minsoc/trunk
35 minsoc.pdf: -adjusting the date on the page header of MinSoC documentation. It was correct on the front and revision pages, now header adjusted accordingly. rfajardo 4358d 16h /minsoc/trunk
34 start_server changed: '-t' option of adv_jtag_bridge for vpi connection on simulation removed. or1200_v3 will not pass on CPU self test.

FAQ completed with asked questions since Februrary 2010.

INSTALL informs bsdl files only have to be copied to home directory for Xilinx devices.

synthesis_examples title includes Minimal OpenRISC System on Chip.
rfajardo 4368d 01h /minsoc/trunk
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.
rfajardo 4376d 02h /minsoc/trunk
32 Documentation revision 1.1, thanks to Wojciech A. Koszek for many comments on it.

Also updating howto, splitint it in INSTALL, HOWTO, FAQ and synthesis_examples, so it should be more clear now what to do when and not to try too much when you don't need. Like everyone was trying to debug the simulation but didn't even test the regular simulation before. Again thanks to Wojciech A. Koszek for his view on this matter.
rfajardo 4390d 00h /minsoc/trunk
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
rfajardo 4445d 07h /minsoc/trunk
30 minsoc SoC documentation had 2 small typo corrections. Performance penalty due to addition of register addresses was a wrong assumption. On project description "is composed by" -> "consists of". Thanks to Wojciech A. Koszek.

howto, at some places the howto did not tell the path from the files being talked about. I tried to always specify the path for every commented file.

Scripts for running the simulation called bash instead of sh. For compatibility reasons sh is now used, this should affect noone. Scripts do not use bash specific commands and generally every UNIX like computer has sh. Thanks again to Wojciech A. Koszek, who adapted that to port it to FreeBSD.
rfajardo 4488d 06h /minsoc/trunk
29 Finishing the howto for Spartan3E Starter Kit with Ethernet. Last hint, change uart baudrate to 9600 to avoid the baudrate skew problem due to truncation.

Following the howto to implement Ethernet on Spartan3E Starter Kit will work flawlessly now.
