Introduction

  • This Mini SoC Generator will generate an System on Chip (SoC)
  • It will be based on RISC-V ISA (IMFC extensions) (32-bit)
  • It will take specifications of the SoC as parameters
  • All the Modules will be parametrised and re-usable, for anyone who requires just a single part instead on an entire SoC
  • High Level approaches will be used by using CHISEL (Constructing Hardware in Scala Embedded Language)

Scope

  • There will be parameters to select the extensions, which will be included in core.
    • Integer (I) extension will be the base extension
    • Multiplication (M) extension will be optional
    • Floating-Point (F) extension will be optional
    • Compressed (C) extenison will be optional
  • There will be parameters to select device(s) as well, to include in the SoC (any one or all can be selected). The list of devices are as follows.
    • GPIO
    • UART
    • SPI
    • SPI-Flash
  • There will be parameters to select Bus Architecture which will be the communication medium within the SoC. The choices for Bus Architecture are:
    • Tilelink Uncached (TL-UL)
