TE0783 (Lattice CPLD firmware)
« on: September 08, 2021, 01:51:08 PM »
Hi, I'm trying to understand how the RGPIO ports TE0783  are connected, I watched the RPIO description for CLPD, I understand how groups 19 ... 0 are used (connected to EXTIO), 24 ... 27 reserve is not used, 28 ... 31 activation code " 1010 ", but I don't understand these RGPIO contacts (Connected to RGPIO 20 ... 23), and these contacts go in both directions (cpld from fpga) and (cpld to fpga)?

Hi,
RGPIO are included into our Reference Design and can be controlled via Vivado HW-Manager over VIO debug core:
https://wiki.trenz-electronic.de/display/PD/TE0783+Test+Board#TE0783TestBoard-VivadoHWManager

RGPIO IP has 32 input and 32 output IOs, they will be translate to a serial lines (2 date and 1 clk) and on CPLD back to 32input and 32 output signals.
First 20 bits control external IO (Even number are outputs, odd inputs from RGPIO on FPGA). next 4 are simple loopbacked ( you reserve what you set), 4 bits are reserved and the last 4 bits are used to actives the core--> Data will only transmitted when your set the last 4 bits to 1010.
