I am trying a new design that includes DDR2. This design has multiple

expected). CAN someone reccomand me a decent controller that does so

Try Northwest Logic--they do good work but you have to pay for it.

I have an issue with porting my high-speed DDR interface to Altera
Cyclone II device. As far as datasheet says, Altera Cyclone II device
does not have any dedicated circuitry to support DDR signaling in its
Input/Output blocks for DQ pins. The only thing present in hardware is
the clock delay circuitry on DQS pins. All other DDR logic is
implemented using LUT's and triggers from adjacent Logic Array
Blocks. So, it seams that we have only DQS pins location fixed,
whenever all other DDR pins may float within the selected IO bank. Is
that right? If yes, then what is the reason t...DDR2: Why do I see two edges of a 125MHz DQS on the IDELAY
I'm working on a Virtex4 DDR2 interface based on the direct clocking
design from MIG 1.6 (XAPP701). I'm clocking the DDR2 (Micron 1Gb) at
125MHz, so I would expect to see only one edge of DQS during
calibration using the IDELAY. However, from chipscope I see two edges
only approx 900ps apart.
I notice there are lots of IDELAY queries on here... can anyone
explain what is going on?
The design uses an IDELAYCTRL clocked at 200MHz from a DCM CLKFX with
a 50MHz clkin.
The result is intermittant read errors, I suspect since the calibrated
data delay is totally wrong...

Do I risk a high clock skew resulting in poor synthesized frequency?

There is an "Attach" function, somewhere down in the menus.

...80 Pin to 68 Pin converter
I built a new computer (for home use) and I wanted really fast drives
so I bought 15K RPM Ultra 320 SCSI drives
Hitachi Ultrastar HUS153014VL3800 and FUJITSU Enterprise MAU3073NC and
I bought a Adaptec SCSI Card 39320D. I didnt realize at the time that
the drives were 80 pin.
So I couldnt use them at the time I got together the rest of my parts
so I just threw in a IDE drive till I get this all sorted out and I
need some advise.
So I understand I need a 80 pin to 68 pin converter to make these
drives usefull to me I guess. From what I have researched so far I
found that I cant find...68 Pin Versus 80 Pin
Is there a difference between a 68 pin and an 80 pin cable? Is one better
I am getting ready to buy a drive and have an opportunutity to get a Maxtor
15k drive. One has a 68 pin connector and one has an 80 pin. I want the
better or faster of the two. I know nothing of SCSI and presently don't have
any SCSI devices in my computer. I will run a single SCSI drive now and may
use a raid setup at a later date but I'm not sure. I fooled with SCSI a few
years back (SCSI CD writer). Never could get it to work. Hopefully this
experience will fare better.

I have acquired an Adaptec host SCSI card 2940UW with a 68 pin
internal connector. This came with four Quantum QM318200TD SCSI hard
drives with 80 pin connectors but only one 80-68 adapter. OK I can use
the drives one at a time, great fun, but can anyone point me to the
best one of these possible choices please:
1) Is there such a thing as an 80-68 adapter that fits on the Adaptec
card, so I can use an 80-pin cable from all four drives leading to the
single 80-68 adapter on the Adaptec card? The lack of power pins on
the HDD's does raise an obstacle there!

You could do PWM in software using a timer interrupt.

Anyone know the correct setup to use an 68 pin to 80 Pin SCA Adapter?
Here's a link to an image of the adapter I'm trying to use:
I am trying to use this to connect an 80 Pin SCA HD to my MegaRAID 1600

position 3 is my HD (with adapter & power), position for is my LVD/SE
The HD is setup for SCSI ID 3 (on the adapter). There are jumper
options for LED, SYN, DLY, MTR also on the adapter.
...When do you pin out?
Hey y'all --
Lately my company's been poking around at our overall design flow,
trying to work out how to make things happen in better, more logical
fashions. And one of the things that comes to mind is the pinning of
FPGAs, i.e. determining which signal's going to go where.
Traditionally around here, we've allowed the pinning to be pretty much
at the PCB layout engineer's discretion with only minimal input from
me, i.e. this has to go to a GCLK, these all need to be on the same I/O
bank for voltage reasons.
I was just wondering how everyone else fits actuall...Need 40 pin Machine PIN Socket...

Am I right in assuming that I cannot use a 50-68 adapter to connect a
50-pin drive to a 68-pin SCSI card --even if it's the only device on
that bus? There would be a bunch of unterminated lines, right?

as long as the 68 pin cable is terminated you can.

controller 68 pin...Unused Pin setting on per-pin basis
I've got a custom FPGA board with a number of peripherals connected to
the FPGA. I need to keep the connections between the FPGA and unused
peripherals in a sensible state.
Is there a way I can define FPGA pins as inputs with different
pull-up/pull-down/floating states without including dummy signals in my HDL.
bitgen offers the option to set ALL unused pins to
pull-up/pull-down/floating, but I need to set this on a per/pin basis.
Any ideas anyone?

I have an old pen plotter (Houston Instrument DMP-50) which has a 25 pin
serial port. Can I hook this up to a 'modern' 9 pin serial connector? Is
there a connector/adaptor I can use? Or is there some other way to hook

Yes and yes. Check any cable supplier. They should have 9-25 adapters.
