Abstract [en]

The production of embedded industrial systems can often be made more profitable by designing systems that are flexible. In this way a specific system can be marketed to a large number of customers with different requirements. During the last few years new advances in semiconductor production technology and an increasing market for configurable logic has made it possible to use FPGA based designs in situations where it has earlier been uneconomical. This thesis evaluates the possibility to use FPGA based communication devices to increase the flexibility of a system. As a part of this evaluation an existing design has been implemented in an FPGA to investigate the possibilities and advantages of an FPGA based solution. The goal was to design a test system and implement a UART and CAN-controller in an FPGA. The FPGA designs have been based on existing open source IP-cores. The work has resulted in a functioning UART implementation an a CAN-controller implementation with only parts of the intended functionality, the test system that was designed contains some errors that need to be fixed for further development to be possible. This thesis has been a part of a larger project that also has targeted the implementation of other functionality than that described in this document. Some of the tasks described have been carried out as a joint effort between the involved parties.
