Chapter 8

Simple Embedded Processors

Abstract

This application example chapter concentrates on the key topic of integrating processors onto FPGA designs. This ranges from simple 8- bit microprocessors up to large IP processor cores that require an element of hardware-software co-design involved. This chapter will take the reader through the basics of implementing a behavioral based microprocessor for evaluation of algorithms, through to the practicalities of structurally correct models that can be synthesized and implemented on an FPGA.
