paddatrappermithro: just so you're aware - my varsity is shut today thanks to a massive storm, so I'll be spending the day working on GSoC stuff05:50
mithropaddatrapper: What IRC client do you use?05:50
paddatrappermithro: weechat on a remote server that I SSH into05:51
mithropaddatrapper: Okay - I'm thinking of getting an irccloud subscription for Ishan, so was pondering if you wanted one too05:51
paddatrapperThanks for the thought, but I'm happy with weechat05:52

mithroHello Ishan_Bansal06:50
Ishan_Bansalmithro : Hi mithro06:51
mithroI'll be around for another 1.5 hours before I have to head off to dinner06:51
mithroIshan_Bansal: so feel free to ask any questions and stuff and I'll try and respond ASAP06:54
Ishan_Bansalmithro : Is their any way to print the value of the signals we define rather than opening stimulations each time,as when I print the signal it usually lead to the printing of the address in which the value to be stored06:56
mithroIshan_Bansal: I don't understand what you are asking?06:57
mithroCan you give me a small example?06:58
Ishan_BansalSuppose A=signal(1) ; A.eq(5) ; print(A) ; the output is 0x55.. not 5. Is their any way to print 506:58
Ishan_BansalThis makes the debugging fast and easy07:00
mithroThat doesn't quite make sense as "mysig.eq(5)" doesn't make any sense outside of a sync/comb block07:01
mithroAlso, you can't store 5 in a Signal which is only 1 bit wide...07:02
tpbTitle: Snippet | IRCCloud (at
Ishan_Bansalmithro : Sorry , just take the signal A = Signal(3), I am just wondering if their is any way to print what is the current value driving in that signal.07:04
mithroIshan_Bansal: Also, you don't need to store values in signals unless you actually need to use them inside the FPGA code -- you can just use normal Python code (for example if you are parametrizing) a module07:05
mithroIshan_Bansal: the "current value" only makes sense in simulation?07:06
mithroYou can print the current value during simulation07:06
mithroInfact, I do that all the time for simple things07:06
Ishan_BansalAlso for dealing with floating point number for Signal() , I am using the following methodology 'https: //' ,Is their any better option07:28
tpbTitle: [Python] Code for floating values - (at
mithroIshan_Bansal: so, do you need to use this floating point number in the FPGA?07:29
mithroIE what are you doing with this floating point number?07:29
Ishan_BansalYa , at a time I have to multiply some values with sqrt_2 in the DCT module07:30
Ishan_BansalAlso for multiplication with cosine and sines07:30
mithroIshan_Bansal: then you really care about how it is represented inside the FPGA hardware07:30
mithroIshan_Bansal: So you need to be explicit about how that is being represented in the hardware07:31
mithroIshan_Bansal: does that make sense?07:43

paddatrappermithro: I'm having trouble with the serial stuff. Neither baud rate (9600 or 115200) seesm to work. I think I have got the wiring working - looking at the source and the datasheets. Any ideas?13:44
paddatrappernever mind, got it working13:49
