LogiCORE Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) v6.0 - Using the C Model to simulate a pipelined streaming FFT with convergent rounding results in "ERROR:c_model:to_hex: input val 1 is out of range -1 to <+1>"

Description

When I use the C Model to simulate a pipelined streaming FFT with convergent rounding, the following error occurs:

" ERROR:c_model:to_hex: input val 1 is out of range -1 to <+1>"

Why does this error occur, and why do I see a mismatch between the FFT C Model and the HDL Core netlist?

解决方案

This issue is fixed in FFT v7.0.

This is a problem in the C Model that occurs infrequently, and only affects the streaming architecture.

When convergent rounding is used, the result of the final butterfly stage is very close to +1.0. The rounding, in conjunction with the change in widths, results in this value becoming exactly +1.0 (which the core cannot actually produce); this causes the C Model to issue the above error message.

The user will see a mismatch against the core if this case occurs, the results of the HDL Core netlist are correct.

You can work around this problem by using truncation, or a more conservative scaling schedule.
