[SpiROSE] Driving the LED Drivers with the FPGA

This week was dedicated to writing the SystemVerilog code for driving the TLC5957 LED drivers. The first issue was to get some SystemC tests ready to use. While the tests where being written by someone else, I started writing the SystemVerilog code. Now the code is ready and have been tested on the drivers, but the timings are not correctly set, so the drivers are being incorrectly driven and behave pretty randomly.

The FPGA development have been delayed in order to get the schematics ready quickly. During the same time a more precise analysis of the available encoders have been done, including the mechanical restrictions, connector, communication protocol, etc.

Next week will be dedicated to the shematics and datasheets reading.
