The goal of this bachelor thesis work was to establish a cable connection between an analogue interface board, containing a 16 bit analogue to digital converter, and a DE2 board in order to allow for digital data transmission between the two boards.
The DE2 board includes an FPGA which was configured to contain a Nios II softcore microprocessor for handling the tasks of reading and saving the 16 bit digital words transmitted over the cable as well as controlling the analogue to digital converter on the interface board.
During the project work various tasks had to be fulfilled which included soldering the cable for parallel transmission of the 16 bit digital data words and the control signals between the boards as well as adjusting the analogue interface board with the correct voltage supplies and jumper settings. Furthermore the hardware circuit insidethe FPGA had to be configured and the program running on the Nios II processor had to be written in C language.
