USB MSD board

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

For the data retrieving from FPGA, and then sending data to the PC, the full speed USB MSD board from www.mitex.us  could be used.

 

This board has Papilio Wing format and perfectly fits to Papilio FPGA boards.

 

No SW driver is requiring on the PC.

 

www.mitex.us  includes the VHDL source code of the interface between FPGA and MSD, and  other VHDL source codes, as well constraint file for Papilio One 500k.

 

Sincerely,

SI

I had a look at the board. It looks pretty good! What is the latency like? How deep do you need to buffer the data to avoid dropped realtime data?

Hello,

 

Thank you for interesting to MSD board.

 

I have updated the MSD board user guide. The MSD demonstration added. Please, revisit to www.mitex.us.

 

Actually this device not for real-time data. Real-time application needs to save a data in buffer, for example on BRAM. Then transfer data from the BRAM to the PC via MSD board by using interface component(VHDL source  code included in site). PC will see the data as txt file “mdata.txt”. File size up to 4GBytes.

 

Basically MSD board works as USB stick.

 

This device very useful for video application. Actually video application was a motivation to develop MSD board.

 

Sincerely,

SI

It looks like a very interesting, Wing compatible board. Thank you for making it and posting it here.

 

Jack.
