Proceeding to SD card

After successfully integrating the FPGA code with ethernet and USB serial, I proceeded to create a test firmware to establish and verify a connection with a micro SD card. The first thing to note about this project is that the SD card is connected to the PIC32 through the FPGA, Read more…

FPGA now working

The FPGA is now configurable using the pic32mz. The cause of the problem was identified as being the clock to the FPGA not being set, and also the ucf file declared an unconnected pin, J13 as the clock pin. The problem was solved by enabling REFCLKOx in the Harmony Configurator, System Read more…

Firmware testing

This week I proceeded to test the firmware created by the previous interns. The first thing I needed to do was replicate their result. One thing I realised from this is not to remove the board support package in the harmony configurator, as it turns out to be important in the Read more…

Switching to actual board

Started the week by continuing on with implementing a hid keyboard on the pic32. While doing this I encountered two major problems, one is that the keyboard refuses to output two of the same characters consecutively, the other  problem was when I tried going through the character array starting from Read more…
