Designing a new PCB Board

This week I finish drawing my PCB design for a new board using Spartan 6 TQFP packaging and PIC32MZ. Also added a bluetooth module (HC-05) onto the new board. In comparison most of the component’s...

Automate Bitstream: Part 3

Continued from last week, I finally manage to automate the bitstream generation. Good news that I have also fixed the problem that causes the hanging of the web application. The hanging is mainly caused...

Automate Bitstream: Part 2

The task continues with more challenges, where I start to monitor the synthesis flow that had been set previously, starting from the generation of the HDL file to the generation of the bitstream. Apparently,...

Extending Wt::Auth

Working on Wt::Auth and Wt::Dbo library for the past few weeks have given me another glimpse into a few of the many functionalities built into Wt. This time it wasn’t as simple as just...

Automate Bitstream : Part 1

The Xilinx Synthesis and Implementation As I start to work on the synthesis and implementation flow, in order to generate the final bitstream that is being used to be programmed into the FPGA. I...

FPGA and PIC comms

This week started with a mess. I started to confuse about what is my task all about, until my supervisor clarified me about it. Add a SPI module As I mentioned on my previous post,...
