Subject: Another XABEL bug.....
From: "Austin Franklin" <dark4room@ix.netcom.com>
Date: 25 Sep 1997 18:10:27 GMT
Links: << >>  << T >>  << A >>
I just found another bug with XABEL...which someone else may be
experiencing...

I have a state machine that has a RESET term in each one of its states
(first condition of if/elseif for each state...) that is supposed to put
the state machine back to its 'InitialState', which is S0.  This provides a
synchronous (or is supposed to) reset for the state machine.  The state
machine is implemented as one bit per state.

The symptom is, when the RESET input was set, the state machine would not
reset its outputs.  What caused this problem is.....the way XABEL did the
logic for state S0.

State S0 goes unconditionally to State S1.  It used a flop (reset, NOT
preset, as I believe it should have if it was thinking clearly) and
implement the S0 bit active low.  The input to the flop was inverted, and
all the destinations of S0 were inverted too.  The logic to the flop was a
big OR gate with one input inverted (the S0 input) and then NAND'd with the
RESET term.  The problem is, once the S0 state bit goes inactive (high) it
can never be brought back low, even by the RESET input term!

When I added the RESET term to the asynchronous reset of the S0 flop (via
XACT), it now works fine.  This was the easiest 'work around' to fix the
problem, but the logic it originally implemented is clearly incorrect.  It
should have just used the RESET input as the D input to the S0 flop...and
implemented S0 as a preset flop, instead of a reset flop (output logic
adjusted accordingly too).

Request : We would like to get Intel HEX format, FPGA Serial Loader Prom 
files, for as many different FPGAs as possible.

The BIT content, and target FPGA, are not important - these are to test
our Programmers'
READ ability, esp if any of the vendors is 'non std' in their HEX
formats.

Assuming there is stand alone software to convert logic cell net list
to bit streams,then a legitimate owner could provide an automated
internet/modem conversion service.
This would allow you to develop the software at least.

Or you could code generate for an array of smaller ICs with a
fixed interconnect.

Alternatively might the 'PARALLEL Processing Connection' like
to develop an open architecture FPGA? 

I think it would be best to define an array of modest devices
with associated memory.

Possible, but this would have 2 disadvantages for my handheld design:
an array takes more space and costs more power. And large sram fpgas
aren't too good on power anyway.

A while ago there was a thread dealing with FPGA
architectures for Reed-Solomon coders. Back then I posted a
reply regarding our work on arithmetic architectures in
Galois fields which prompted several inquiries.

Well, we managed to write a paper describing a detailed
comparison of multiplication and inversion architectures
for GF(2^8) on Xilinx and Altera platforms. The paper was
presented at FCCM '97.

A postscript version of the full paper can be found at

Subject: USB Legacy Implementation
From: "jcalder" <jcalder@well.com>
Date: 26 Sep 1997 21:51:02 GMT
Links: << >>  << T >>  << A >>
I am thinking of making a USB ASIC for Legacy systems (i.e. non USB
factory) via an ECP parallel port. My question is this:

I am deciding if I should modify a PCI based host controller ASIC or code
an intel based microcontroller with a SIE engine. ECP maps nicely to the
PCI interface (64byte fifo's, register mappping ect), a VXD would stimulate
this chip via the parallel port, to provide USB 1.0 host services WITHOUT a
USB protocol stack.

Alternatively I could code a controller. I think the ECP ASIC would give me
greater expansion and development opportunities, i.e.. a "standard" device
for legacy connectivity  and a lower production cost, but with high NRE's.
The controllers a bus, with limited expansion capacity. Any thoughts would
be appreciated.

Marty,
Try ATMEL 17C65, 17C128 or 17C256 EEPROMS. WWW.atmel.com. You can burn
and re-burn them up to 10000 times. ATMEL also sells a litle board with
the software  that can be used as a base for in-circuit programming or
you can write your own code. In US ATMEL sell this board for $250.00
with software. You can download two or more FPGA from a single EEPROM,
but it depens on  how big are FPGAs and how big is EEPROM. Usually FPGA
tools allow you to combine several bit files in a single file.
Good luck.
Leo.

Subject: HOW TO ATTRACT GIRLS INSTANTLY....Secrets to instant sex appeal!!!

 HOW TO ATTRACT GIRLS  INSTANTLY....Secrets to instant sex appeal

PURE INSTINCT  PHEROMONE ATTRACTANT FOR MEN
WILL GIVE YOU AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE WITH WOMEN
GUARANTEED
(or your money back)!

Everyone knows that some men(a tiny minority) are able to
instantly attract women. It used to be known as "animal magnetism".
Scientists now say this natural attraction is due to pheromones - body
smells that are not consciously detected, but that effect the behavior
of others towards the person giving off these chemical signals. It's natures
way of attracting the opposite sex.

Scientists have now isolated and synthesized two natural
attractants- androstenol and androstenone pheromone. Carefully controlled
experiments show they work and have been widely reported on television and
in both the American and British l press. Androstenone pheromone has
been successfully tested on BBC TV's "TOMORROWS WORLD" and by Desmond
Morris (Author of "The Naked Ape" and "Manwatching" and renowned human
behaviorist) on BBC TV's "Friday Night... Saturday Morning." It also was tested 
on Discovery and was shown to cause positive sexaul attraction for women 

New improved formula Pure Instinct from ICT Research Technology contains
both ANDROSTENOL and ANDROSTENONE pheromone and produces an
undetectable scent that subconsciously attracts women to the wearer. Pure Instinct
is the world's number one selling and the most concentrated (5 - 7 x normal active
strength) pheromone spray for men - don't be misled by cheaper (or more
expensive) imitations.

We have spent three years researching if pheromones work and researching
the quality of pheromones products After three years of sound studing and
testing we feel the miracle of Pheromones is real We have also found
most pheromone products ( they will remain nameless)  are either well over priced 
for what  you get or do not have enough pheromone (Androstenone)in them to be 
effective. It is not Androstenone that is not effective to attract women, 
There is just never enough in the products sold to do the job

Each one of the bottles of Pure Instinct Contains
1 MG of androstenone. Many other porducts
we have tested have less then 1/10th of that.
This is why with these other products you have to
use half the bottle at one time just to get a result. 

The results are there. If there is androstenone in
 the product the results WILL BE THERE but if there 
is not enough androstenone you can go
through one bottle in 2 days.

Pure Instinct is so strong just a few applications will get you the results half a bottle of the other pheromonee products will get you.. This is why our pheromone product is more expensive then some but cheaper then most. 1 mg of Androstenone buy it self cost around $11.00 on the open chemical market plus there is packaging etc. So we feel $29.95 is a hell of a price for a product YOU KNOW will work because it has the right amount of Pheromone to do the job without having to use up the whole bottle in one day

The Point: A good product with enough Androstenone Pheromone
worn by a man will ATTRACT A WOMEN INSTANTLY



WHAT THE PRESS SAY:

  * Lowell Ponte, a former consultant on exotic weapons and a Readers
Digest science writer, said in an interview that "use of the recently
discovered chemical Androstenone should be banned. Congress should  pass a
law making it a crime to use this chemical to  influence voters by making
politicians appear more lovable.
- The San Francisco Chronicle -


  * "The stuff attracts women like you wouldn't believe"
- Colorado Telegraph


  * "And now this pheromone has been marketed, we've tested it - and good
grief it works"
    - Koave


  * "pheromones influence human behavior in a subtle way. Women are
attracted to the smell"
- The Daily Telegraph


  * "Pure Instinct is likely to produce a state of sexual excitement or
arousal"
- Men Only (Vol. #44 No. 4)



Much of our sales of Pure Instinct are reorders from existing  users,  reports
confirm success. "Pure Instinct really does seem to work! The most dramatic
instances have occurred when wearing it at discos. Girls just drift towards
me and start flirting."
-DT Cardiff


"I Knew Pure Instinct wasn't a gimmick when one of the girls at work, quite
out of character, started to seduce me when we were alone in the office."
-SD Nottingham

Pure Instinct comes in a discreet 30ml pocket container with full
instructions, Ideal for any man who wants to join that lucky few who have
more than their fair share of sex appeal.

Good luck. Niether of these packages are supported any longer, and
what you're asking for the XACT system is 3 times what I just paid for
the latest M1 software. You might get a nibble at $30-$50 for all of
it, but I certainly wouldn't pay more than that for it.

You got M1 for $100 bucks?  Who sells it for that price?  Last time I
checked, the foundation base package was $1000 and the foundation standard
package was $3000.  I assume the new M1 stuff is similarly priced.

  Nobody that I know sells it for 100 bucks unless through a promotional
deal where they are willing to take the loss. The download cables alone
are worth more than that. I have one Foundation Base (schematic and
Router and full CPLD) still in the box from a canceled project that I am
selling for 300.00. It comes with the full one years maint/upgrades and
XILINX download cables. I have one at this price. This is not a regular
sale, and is only offered on this one. The regular price is $495.00.

Subject: ALTERAīs promises are not real! Buy XILINX.
From: Martin Vorbach <Martin.Vorbach@SCRAP.de>

Dear Mr. Hahn!

Your company has promised multiple times, that your FPGAs fit at 80%
utilization and 80% pin-usage without problems. Iīve got such an email
from you!

Now we had only to change a 9560 design a little bit (we tie out 9
internal signals, there is no need for additional logic), and there is
no more fit. To your information, the original design data is 73%
utilization and 66% io-pin-usage,
Thank you for your TRUE statements. Why do we discuss with you?

This is not the only problem during our design-phase. At first (with
software release 7.2) nothing fitted, until you sent us the
software-release 7.22 which worked a little better. About 4 weeks after
we called for help. 
Thank you for your FAST response.

Reading your handbook you promise a PLL in the 10K series. Nice feature,
we had to use is. BUT there is no PLL in the 10Ks; there is only one
special 10K100 which includes a PLL and this device is not deliverable
within a acceptable period of time. 
Thank you for your GOOD handbook.

Buying the Max2Plus software, a one year free software maintenance was
claimed. But, at all there are no free updates.
Thank you for your FAIR service.


After finishing this design, we will terminate any business relationship
with you. We will be XILINX customers in future. This company listens
and is innovative. ALTERA only claims garbage and doesnīt support the
customers.
Or is a customer like us, which claimed to order about 100 pieces 10K100
pa to small for you? Shure this are only revenues about 50.000$ pa.

Probably you will find a good solution, yet?!


So why I write you this in (bad) english. We believe the relationship
between Altera and itīs customers is so critical, that we post this
letter to a couple a newgroups.

Good luck.

Hello :

	I'am using ALTERA FLEX10K30 to design 
a TVgame board< just like SEGA Megadrive >.
I just complete 1 Plane Display in my Video Module
( 256 K x 32bit SRAM 20ns ).
( 1 plane = 640(H)x480(V)   , 1 dot = 1 Byte = 256 color )
Now I got some problem . I no have any time to 
add "Dynamic Image Object" in H_BLANK.

Anyone can tell me how can I do ?

Thanks.

THat price is actualy fairly repeatable. Just go to a Xilinx seminar.
Even the "regular everyday" price is down to about $495 now.

Check the Xilinx web page for the FIFO app note.  The control logic for
various flavors of fifos are described there.  The size of the fifo is
easily changed to meet your needs.
