Leonardo Spectrum

Programmable Hardware Test Engine

Worked the design of a special purpose, programmable hardware test engine which utilized three ep20k300efi672 Altera Apex20ke FPGAs. Captured the design in VHDL and synthesized with Leonardo Spectrum and Quartus 2.2 software. Managed the design hierarchy to optimize the re-utilization of logic between the three devices to improve time-to-market. Delivered a synthesizable SDRAM controller, in two weeks, for use between a proprietary message protocol bus and a Micron SDRAM.
