## Current status: Will not even compile, work in progress.
This repository will contain the VHDL sources and helper scripts, PCB design files, and photographs.
## Current status: first firmware (2048 bins) succesfully synthesized
Haven't made a bitstream yet, or tested it on the hardware.
### Specifications:

* Phyter V Ethernet Phy
* AD9218 ADC (2x 10 bits 65 MHz)
### Requirements:
* Xilinx ISE 14.7 (WebPack)
* Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
* Make (project is controlled through a Makefile, not ISE)
### TODO:
* Add the other existing firmwares
* Pulsar mode (256 bins)
* Raw mode (70MS/s * 10 bits)
* Convert all firmwares to use 1Gb/s Ethernet
* Update and merge current firmwares, single Makefile, code re-use
* Add WOLA to the FFT-baased backends
* New firmwares:
* Digital Down Converter (DDC) for use with GnuRadio and SETI@home
* GPS cross correlation or squaring receiver (for cross-scans)
* Run from 10MHz clock instead of 140 MHz?
* Absolute time or PPS input
