Hi: I have Spartan-2e board here which resembles to certain extent Spartan-3e starter kit. There are differences however - SDRAM instead of DDR, older Microblaze core, higher CPU clock, EMAC instead Etherlite, etc... I've attached auto-config.h files, generated by Petalogix BSP for both cases. I managed to compile and run u-boot and uClinux for both boards. However there is visible delay - 3-5 sec - when start any application (like "ls" for instance) on my Spartan-2e target under uClinux. The following observations have been done: 1) Delay depends on application's size: "ls" which in fact starts busybox (200K) takes several seconds to start while small "cat" launches quickly. 2) On Spartan-3e Starter Kit delay is also visible, but less than on my Spartan-2e based HW. Note that the Starter Kit CPU clock is little bit slower than mine (50MHz vs. 64MHz). 3) Simple memory read/write tests (I ran them from BRAM based code) show that my board performs even better than starter kit which is to be expected provided that clock is higher. I sounds for me that uClinux kernel uses some resources (cashes?) which are not well supported in older Spartan-2e architecture. Can somebody give me an idea where to look? Thanks, Leonid.
