The Verilog Hardware Interface for CAE
This article describes Convey's various hardware interfaces for use with a CAE (Custom Application Enginer). This should be useful when writing VHDL and developing your own bitfiles. When looking at the sample project, these interfaces can be found in the cae_pers.v file.
Note: Each interface is between a component and your CAE. Inputs are signals sent to your CAE. Outputs are signals your CAE sends to the interface.
Memory Controller Interface
There are 8 memory controllers (MC). Each memory controller has two ports (even and odd). Even ports have signal names with a suffix of _e. Odd ports have a suffix of _o.
Management (CSR) Interface (Optional)
Simply connect the outputs and inputs together if you do not want to use any CSR agents.
