Lecture on serial-parallel conversion (deserialization)Topics: Generic requirements for serial-parallel conversion; uses of functions and tasks.Summary: We briefly discuss serial-parallel conversion as a generic problem and then move on to specific the usefulness of verilog functions and tasks in simplifying this kind of conversion. Continuation of our serdes class project is reserved for the lab work.
Lab on serial-parallel conversionWe first do two related, generic deserializer designs; then, we move on to recall our serdes class project. We implement a first cut on the required Deserializer module of our project.
Lab PostmortemWe discuss reusability issues of our class serdes deserializer.
