  1. I have an old Spartan 3E Starter Kit and I need to develop an embbeded system. Such system targets an acceleration for a specific computation process. https://i.postimg.cc/0QDXmRBb/image.png To do so, I will employ MicroBlaze for the management process connected to a vhdl block which is the piece of hardware that will perform the acceleration itself according to Figure 1. Figure 1 - basic scheme for my acceleration process The design is being done in XPS (the hardware) and in Eclipse SDK (the software). In the C soft
  2. I have in my Education Center 20 Basys 2 boards as well as 20 Spartan 3E Starter Kit boards. Spartan 3E Starter Kit Boards state is as good as new ones. There is absolutely no way to negotiate directly with Xilinx requesting a full license which would allow us to work with XPS (Xilinx Platform Studio) and with microblaze. If I enter in my license manage center, I cannot create full licenses anymore. That is, if I format my old lenovo, I will lost my last XPS which can deal with microblaze. We are forced to work in assembly with picoblaze. I already know that there are some devel
  3. The main experiments I need to develop are based on acceleration processes, i.e., the computer doing some basic processing, passes a complex task to the FPGA kit, the process is done, and the results are returned to the computer. This whole process needs to be faster than conventional-old style parallel computing or even with GPUs. --->The challenge is to develop a hardware code, dynamically changeable or not, which explores the specificity of specific task with a massivelly parallel processing. If the hardware code is ordinary, simple, weakly thoght, it can even win the perfo
  4. Thank you Dan, I have two scenarios: one for my mentioned basic experiments (comb + seq + fsm); and another for advanced experiments The earlier was already defined thanks to the cooperation I received at this thread. I will write some additional notes at it that are related to what you described. Regards
  5. Oh... sorry. I confess that I didnĀ“t notice the seven segment display feature. We really do need the seven segment display in our boards due to the sequential and fsm experiments. Thank you
  6. I need a few units of a development kit, the less expensive, which can provide partial and full dynamic reconfiguration. Also, I would like to know if such board works with microblaze. Can anybody indicate a good product? From Digilent?
  7. I am looking for a basic development board and my goals with it are the devlopment and implementation of: combinational circuits sequential circuits and finite state machines These three goals are been reached with a good satisfaction with Basys2 in our lab. Sliding switches, push buttons, and seven segment displays are very used. The only thing that requires some extra-work to explain is the multiplexed seven segment display, but we can address this task for the students. None of the implementations have reached the 100E FPGA capacity. It was my int
