Job description

A wide range of boards, used in the control box of a Picanol weaving machine, are controlled by the processor board over a fast serial communication (Fast Serial Bus or FSB). To perform measurements or functional tests, a complex setup with master and bus board is now needed. To have a more comfortable access to the feature board, a board can be designed that replaces the master and the bus board. This solution would reduce the cost of and the needed space for the test setup.
Your task
o Design a board that replaces the master and the bus board
o Develop driver software for the processor and the FPGA
o Develop an easy to use User Interface that controls the test board
