XtremeDSP Development Kit - What is the difference between the viDIME library and the DIME library, or why does the NT302-0000_Spartan_to_Virtex_Interface Application Note use the vidime.c functions rather than those in the FUSE C++ API documentation?

Description

What is the difference between the viDIME library and the DIME library?

or

Why does the NT302-0000_Spartan_to_Virtex_Interface Application Note use the vidime.c functions rather than those in the FUSE C++ API documentation?

Solution

The viDIME Library (vidime.c functions) are wrappers for the FUSE C++ API to make communication with the XtremeDSP Development Kit via the DIME C/C++ API easier to use. Because these functions are wrappers for the FUSE C++ API, they actually still call and use the FUSE libraries.

The vidime.c functions are available with NT302-0000 Spartan to Virtex Interface Application Note, and the documentation can be found in PCI To User FPGA Interface Core - Issue 6.pdf file.

All of the Nallatech Application Notes for the XtremeDSP Development Kit are available on the Resource CD, and are installed by default when you install the Nallatech FUSE Software.

For more information about where to find examples, and documention on the FUSE APIs, see (Xilinx Answer 31534).
