Parallel Bidirectional Port for a Soft-core Microprocessor Designing a System

This paper introduces a technique to design an bits bidirectional port to be connected with soft core microblaze processor system that is configurable on Spartan 3E slice. A soft core processor system with peripheral is designed using embedded design technique with integrated software environment (ISE tool) supplied by Xilinx. An interrupt system controller is added to the designed system to control the incoming interrupt signal to promote the interrupt service routine to deal with incoming data. The system performance is tested by sending and transmitting packets of data from and to a MatLab program using the P.C parallel port.
