    Dear Harry
    MIPS is now a separate company from Imagination, so you should go to the PowerVR Forums of Imagination:

    Dear Dustin
    The answer is not fully.
    We will do this in the future, but there’s a lot of work to do before this.

    Dear Roger
    Yes, there will be a global series of workshops, including Asia, in 2018.
    Make sure you are registered for the IUP, and you will receive details.

    The FPL Workshop in Ghent is the first trial of the new content.

    Harry
    I have taken advice. Your question is not one that we expect from an academic using MIPSfpga. The configuration of microAptiv that is part of MIPSfpga is fixed and you do not have to generate a configuration.
    All the information required is given in the Teaching Resource “Getting Started Guide v2.0”.

    The configuration tool referred to in the microAptiv reference guide is for commercial customers who licence a MIPS core, and then adjust it to their needs. If you are a MIPS licensee, this is a question for the Partner Portal. It doesn’t belong on this Forum.

    I remind you that the licence for MIPSfpga is for academic use only.

    We are the architects of the MIPS processor used in the PIC32, but we didn’t design the development tools.
    MPLAB X is Microchip’s own product and your question should go on their MPLab Forum:

    Good luck!

    in reply to: Can the MIPSfpga be used on the Basys3 board #64420

    Robert Owen
    Participant

    Yes it can! We provide examples in the Labs package to show you how to port the exercises to Basys 3. There is also a section about this in Sarah Harris’s video tutorial (near the end).

    Note: for the SoC package you need a bigger FPGA and more memory than Basys 3, to support the demands of the Linux OS.

    Let us know how you get on…good luck!

    Dear Robert
    The Europractice licence gives you access to the Verilog so yes, you can modify the core.
    The size of FPGA depends on the configuration you choose and the amount of memory.
    In the MIPSfpga package we recommend a Nexys 4 DDR board from Digilent as a starting platform for SoC development.
    Regards,
    Robert

    Dear Robert
    The microAptiv core in MIPSfpga does not include HW Virtualisation.
    The UDI (User Defined Instructions) are supported (and the reference manual is in the Getting Started package), and some users have exploited these for security purposes.

    The latest Warrior M class (M5100/M5150) fully supports HW virtualisation and this core can be licenced by academia for a modest annual fee through either Europractice or MOSIS.
    You are in EMEA+Russia and would be served by Europractice.
    Details here:http://www.europractice.stfc.ac.uk/software/imagination.html

    Thanks for your interest in MIPS cores.

    ALL our Teaching Materials contain both .pdf and .pptx / . docx versions of the materials. For academic use we encourage re-use, cut and paste, adaptation, extension…whatever you need to do so that the materials work for you and your students.
    The materials are written by leading Professors in their fields, we do not write them in-house. So they are genuine academic teaching materials.
    A typical Teaching Materials package contains:
    – Presentation slides
    – A Teacher’s Guide
    – A Student’s Exercise manual
    – Set-up Guide with links to software and required hardware
    – Test Materials with Solutions
    – Supporting reference documentation and manuals
    – Any special code required
    Our intention is to provide everything you need to get started quickly and effectively.
    Furthermore, MIPSfpga, An Introduction to Mobile Graphics, and The Connected MCU Lab are supported by online tutorials showing the materials being used.

    We wish you lots of success teaching with our materials and would appreciate your feedback.
    Best Regards,
    Robert Owen

    Thanks Ron
    We will contact ASEE about participating in 2017.
    An introduction from you would be helpful.
    Thanks,

    Dear Ron
    As you know from Dani’s post on here, there are lots of new materials coming next year. We plan to have a new series of workshops then.
    Currently the main activities are Connected MCU Lab Workshops (see Events tab).
    For MIPSfpga there will be a workshop in Munich on 12th January, and a deep-dive workshop at HiPEAC 2017 on January 25th.

    We would love to hold a MIPSfpga event at a major US Conference, but to be honest, we’ve found it hard to get into US events. Any suggestions?
    Where are you? Would you like to host?

    Best wishes,
    RCWO

    Greetings.
    I have asked our Creator team to answer your post.
    Thanks for your activities on Ci20!
