Picoblaze Based Embedded System For Monitoring Applications Using FPGA
The microprocessors are used for executing instructions by fetching from memory and also interact with other
peripheral, which requires additional circuitry. This increases the complexity, area and power consumption. To overcome
from this problem we use Picoblaze microprocessor. Pico Blaze is a 16-bit soft core microprocessor developed by Xilinx that
can be synthesized with few FPGA families. In this design a set of peripherals are developed to interface with Pico Blaze.
They are PS/2 keyboard port, Light monitor control serial communication. The system has been implemented in a FPGA
board and some typical control and monitoring system have been developed.
