Title in Portuguese
"Implementação do barramento on-chip AMBA baseada em computação reconfigurável"
Keywords in Portuguese
AMBA
barramento on-chip
computação reconfigurável
FPGA
Abstract in Portuguese
A computação reconfigurável está se fortalecendo cada vez mais devido ao grande avanço dos dispositivos reprogramáveis e ferramentas de projeto de hardware utilizadas atualmente. Isso possibilita que o desenvolvimento de hardware torne-se bem menos trabalhoso e complicado, facilitando assim a vida do desenvolvedor. A tecnologia utilizada atualmente em projetos de computação reconfigurável é denominada FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array), que une algumas características tanto de software (flexibilidade), como de hardware (desempenho). Isso fornece um ambiente bastante propício para desenvolvimento de aplicações que precisam de um bom desempenho, sem que estas devam possuir uma configuração definitiva. O objetivo deste trabalho foi implementar um barramento eficiente para possibilitar a comunicação entre diferentes CORES de um robô reconfigurável, que podem estar dispersos em diferentes dispositivos FPGAs. Tal barramento seguirá o padrão AMBA (Advanced Microcontroller Bus Architecture), pertencente à ARM. Todo o desenvolvimento do core completo do AMBA foi realizado utilizando-se a linguagem VHDL (Very High Speed Integrated Circuit Hardware Description Language) e ferramentas EDAs (Electronic Design Automation) apropriadas. É importante notar que, embora o barramento tenha sido projetado para ser utilizado em um robô, o mesmo pode ser usado em qualquer sistema on-chip.

Abstract in English
The reconfigurable computing is each time more fortified, what leads to a great advance of reprogrammable devices and hardware design tools. This has become hardware development less laborious and complicated, thus, facilitating the life of the designer. The technology currently used in projects of reconfigurable computing is called FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array), which combines some characteristics of software (flexibility) and hardware (performance). This technology provides a propitious environment to the development of applications that need a good performance. Those that don’t need a definitive configuration. The purpose of this work was to implement an efficient bus to make possible the communication among different modules of a reconfigurable robot. This bus is based on a bus standard called AMBA (Advanced Microcontroller Bus Architecture), which belongs to ARM. All the development of full AMBA core was carried through using VHDL (Very High Speed Integrated Circuit the Hardware Description Language) language and appropriated EDA (Electronic Design Automation) tools. It is important to notice that, even so the bus have been projected to be used in a robot, it could be used in any system on-chip.
