No doubt FPGAs bring greater performance to virtual instrumentation applications. The challenge is harnessing the power of this tool without getting lost in the complexity. One solution is the C-to-Verilog
which lets the user paste a block C-code into a window on their website and then it automatically converts the code to Verilog. It lets the user choose the address bitwidth, the array size, the number of parts, and the target FPGA which includes both Xilinx and Altera product families.
. If you want to simply avoid an in-depth tutorial on how to write Verilog then this is the site for you. It’s not clear how efficient the generated code is, but it appears from the examples to provide a solid baseline from which the user can apply more efficiency
Here’s an additional list of Verilog tools
that you may find useful.
