Real time data acquisition using FX3
I'm using my Super Speed Explorer kit that I connected to an FPGA Cyclone IV to transfer continuous data from my FPGA to my computer. I was wondering which is the best program that allows me to do so ? ( I'm currently using stream IN firmware but I wanted to make sure it is the optimal program with the optimal throughput).
I also need to find the time constraints and specifications for this kind of transfer : what is the minimum time of data acquisition for example ? when speaking about throughput: is it the same between FPGA-FX3 and FX3-computer ? because what I want to do is to save the data I get on the computer and use it to draw a graph and I need the graph drawing to be as fast and continuous as possible : just as if it is real time transfer.
Information about my projet:
- a 16 bit data transfer between the FPGA and the Explorer kit
- my GPIF runs at 50 MHz only ( hardware constraint )
