Description Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton 2019-04-19 08:50:36 BST
similar to chisel3 util and not quite as generally along the lines
of litex, and augmenting nmigen.lib, a data handling, i/o control,
pipeline-building-block, queues (FIFOs) and general utils library
is needed.

two key pieces of information to decide:

* name of the repo
* name (hierarchy) in python

Subtasks (edit this comment to add, and create sub-bug):

* bug #63 queue (FIFO) with write-through and support for 1-address entries
* bug #65 variable-length IN, variable-length OUT queue
* bug #64 data handling and routing, i/o control and synchronisation
* bug #68 general small utility routines
* bug #66 nmigen Object class needed (python inheritance)

Comment 1 Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton 2019-05-02 14:30:29 BST
we need a decision on the name of the library and the name of the
git repository.
