send data from fpga back to pc?

Postby tinaW » Tue May 31, 2011 4:35 pm

Hi all,

I am currently working on a project to communicate between fpga de1 board and MATLAB (pc). I have sort of figured out how to send data from pc to FPGA board through usb, but not the other way around. Can I still realize it using usb? Or is serial port more do-able? And how do I realize sending data from fpga to pc if using any of the methods I mentioned above?

Thank you,

Thanks for your query!

Can you please elaborate more which software tool you are using and protocol?
In Xilinx System Edition tool after generating code in matlab or simulink you can generate bit stream in ISE from eqivalent code in hdl(verilog/vhdl).
Then this bitstream you can dowload to FPGA by using JTAG-usb mode.
I would like to suggest you to elaborate more then will tell the exact solution.
But ant how I think the Communication between Matlab(pc) and FPGA will be done through usb only(need to explore).
