Hello everyone...

Im planning to implement an image compression algo on the spartan 3 starter kit

for that i'll need to store the image somewhere. Storing it on the FPGA (implementing a RAM on the FPGA ) consumes a lot of area. So one option would be to store the image on the SRAM provided on the starter kit. But then how do i accomplish that..

awaiting replies...

thanks !

Would SRAM be fast enough for your system? If not use DDR memory.

From what i know, static ram is always faster than dynamic ram. so speed wont be a problem me thinks..

the only issue is that i'll need to use the Serial port or some other means to transfer the image from the PC to the ram. Nominal size of the image would be around 100KB

Isnt there a more convenient way of getting the image to the Ram ?
