First just wanted to say thank you to putting this library and RTL out on a GPL License! I’m a student and my research is in RISC-V, and it’s hard to find 64-bit RISC-V IP designs to use for research.
On to my questions:
I’ve downloaded the example design bitstreams to test out the Noel-v system, and it was a nice surprise to see there’s a VC707 Noel-v design (which is the FPGA I use). I’ve been able to load all of it up and boot Linux on it. Is there anyone that has a riscv-pk (BBL) version instead of OpenSBI? If not, I’ll transfer some of the platform specific code over, as I have to use it for my specific area.
I started looking at the GRLIB Library and there is also a VC707 Noel-v design folder. I’m not sure if it’s in a working state or not. I went to configure the SoC with xconfig, and it uses the Leon processor configs instead of Noel. Also when generating the design with Vivado, if 1gb Ethernet is enabled, Implementation fails due to a blackbox not defined. It’s “gtxc0” for a “gbitc” module that isn’t found anywhere in the Gaisler Ethernet IP files.
Thank you again for the help!
