Hi, I'd like to set up block rams(16k) to acts as a ROM lookup table after initialization. After establishing the Memory Area as an FPGA resource there's an option to initialize it by using memory eritor. However, this would be very time consuming, as my memory is 16Kwords deep. Is there some way to just reference an external text file, or excel sheet at least automatically read/paste an external file for this purpose?
and also How to combine both block memory and distributed memory (using lut) to use as one memrory of 16k? that is , I want 2 implenet 2 memory of size 16kX8 in fpga spartan-3 one a6X8 take 8 block ram out of 12 block ram available in fpga? then when I tried to use only LUT as ram of size 16kX8 the resourses are not enough.so can u tell me hoe to combine remainning 4 blokc ram and LUTs to implement one more memory of size 16kX8
please mail to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
