DE0-Nano-SoC: How HPS(ARM) recognizes f2h_irq0 or f2h_irq1 interrupts from FPGA


#1

I designed a block in Verilog. When data processing is finished, this FPGA block sends an interrupt signal to HPS using one of dedicated interrupt line: f2h_irq0 or f2h_irq1. The question is how HPS can recognize that this interrupt is active? Could anybody give an example of C code where HPS reads the interrupt (or decode interrupt vector) from FPGA?

Hi Seb,
Is a Linux running on the HPS? In this case, your software need to register the selected interrupt line.
I did this in a kernel module with the request_irq(...) function.
This function has (amongst other things) a parameter with a function pointer to your interrupt handle function and a parameter with the interrupt number. I define the interrupt number in my device tree blob which must match with the interrupt line defined in QSYS…

Hi schnudi,

would you please show us some example code for interrupt registration and handle?
Thanks!

Hi schnudi/seb,

Our application use case is also to handle the same interrupts f2h_irq0 or f2h_irq1.in linux on HPS side
Is there any example code available.?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
