LogiCORE Fast Fourier Transform (xFFT) v4.0 - Why are my results incorrect when I use the Radix-2 Lite implementation with the block floating point option?

Description

Why are my results incorrect when I use the Radix-2 Lite implementation with the block floating point option? 

 

The problem is that the block floating point unit is not being properly reset at the end of a transform.

Solution

This is fixed in the Fast Fourier Transform (xFFT) v4.1. 

 

The way to work around this issue is to assert the sclr pin before each transform to ensure that the block floating point unit is reset.
