Notes on w11 systems: w11a for Arty S7-50
The sys_w11a_as7 system is a w11a implementation for the Digilent Arty S7-50 board with DDR3 SDRAM support via a Vivado MIG core. For complete configuration, see sys_conf.vhd. The most important features are:
|CPU options||FPP: no; Cache: 32 kB|
|Memory||3840 kB from DDR3 SDRAM via miglib_artys7|
|Devices||DL11:2; DZ11, PC11, LP11, DEUNA, RK11, RL11, RHRP, TM11, IIST, KW11P, M9312: yes|
|Diagnostics||rbmon: yes; ibmon: yes; dmpcnt: yes; dmhbpt: 2; dmcmon: yes|
|Rlink||12 Mbps via FT2232HQ based serial link|
An alternative design that uses only BRAM is available as sys_w11a_br_as7.
The board has only 4 LEDs plus 2 RGB-LEDS and offers only a very rudimentary console light emulation. The memory size of 3840 kB allows starting all oskits.
For complete instructions on how to run operating system images, see w11a_os_guide. The default setup is:
SWI = 0110 (gives console light emulation...) ti_w11 -tuD,12M,break,xon @<oskit-name>_boot.tcl
The author doesn't have an Arty S7 board and doesn't plan to buy one. The design was made to study differences between Artix-7 and Spartan-7. The design is only simulation tested.
