Steps For Adding New FPGA Board Support
1) Device Characterization
Special Note on multiplier characterization: Characterization is always performed by inserting input and output registers around the operation to be analyzed. The multiplier implemented on the DSP is special in that depending on the quartus version and DSP block, these input/output registers which are used to separate the datapath from possible I/O delay from routing to pins may be placed onto the DSP block itself. Therefore, with this technique, we cannot obtain the correct information for DSP multipliers of latency 0.
2) Update Configuration Files
3) Test for optimal clock period constraint by changing CLOCK_PERIOD parameter in legup.tcl
4) Processor Directories
5) Hybrid Flow
