SIS8300-KU Firmware Revision Table

Support for user firmware developments is available in two different flavors. The original approach is a port of the former SIS8300-x ISE macro firmware package to allow for migration from earlier versions to the Kintex Ultrascale unit with minimum design changes. The second -more AXI interface based- approach was mainly driven by Lund University and applications at the ESS. A block diagram of that implementation can be found below. The muBlaze startup controller allows for configuration of the SIS8300-KU (including an attached RTM like a DWC8VM1 for example) without interaction of the crate controller.

Revision Comment
SIS8300KU_17.hpm RTM Z3_LVDS Voltage corrected to 1V8 (required for proper operation with DS8VM1. Was incorrectly changed from 2V5 to 3V3 in revision 14 as a workaround for a fixed earlier DWC8300 R11 (DRTM-DWC10) issue). The initial 2V5 setting was an erroneous copy&paste setting from the SIS8300-L2.
16 Merged with current SIS8300-L2 repo to include interoperability patch.
15 Flash PROM type adapted (required for FPGA firmware updates via IPMI).
14 Merged with current SIS8300-L2 repo to include updates from the DESY development branch. RTM Z3_LVDS Voltage changed to 3V3 to handle early DWC8300 R11 (DRTM-DWC10) flaw. Not necessarily safe (clamp diodes). Fix on RTM recommended.
