I created a new block named verilog_axi_ii. This block is a sync block with a simplified AXI4-Stream interface. You can find this new block here.
In detail, I incorporated the functionality of the generate_verilator_file() into generate_so(). Because I found that I could do both things at once with just one Makefile.
I also finished and tested the Makefile template axi_module_cl.mk for the AXI-stream interface, this file could call Verilator to compile the Verilog file then generate the shared library. You can find this Makefile here. Here, in order to simplify the
process, I fixed the module name generated by Verilator to Vaxi_module. User Verilog module should have following interface.
* AXI signals:
* ACLK input
* ARESETn input
* TVALID_IN input
* TREADY_IN output
* TVALID_OUT output
* TREADY_OUT input
* TDATA_IN[31:0] input
* TDATA_OUT[31:0] output
I finished the template of the shared library code axi_module.h and axi_module.cpp, but I did not test them yet. The shared library interface is as below. You could find axi_module.h here and axi_module.cpp here.
void AXI_transfer(const unsigned int &gr_input,
unsigned int &gr_output,
unsigned int &time);
##Plan next week
I think I have completed the main part of this block. I plan to let verilog_axi_ii run next week and test it with a small Verilog module.
