Build Project

Compiling options

NonTrivialMIPS CPU has some compiling flags that can control the features that will be enabled and parameters (such as cache size and associativity) that will be used. See src/compile_options.svh for details.

Note that inappropriate changes made to these flags may lead to strange or WRONG behaviors of the CPU.

Generate bitstream

You can generate bitstreams that can be programmed to FPGA by following commands:

# for soc project
/path/to/vivado -mode tcl -source scripts/build_soc.tcl vivado/TrivialMIPS.xpr
# for loongson functional test
/path/to/vivado -mode tcl -source scripts/generate_bitstream.tcl loongson/soc_axi_func/run_vivado/mycpu_prj1/mycpu.xpr
# for loongson performance test
/path/to/vivado -mode tcl -source scripts/generate_bitstream.tcl loongson/soc_axi_perf/run_vivado/mycpu_prj1/mycpu.xpr

Vivado 2018.3 is required.
