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 coontroller.
