The following is some code that reads the White Rabbit timestamp.

  1. use eb-console to inspect output of printf() statements. Pay attention to "external WB address(es" that can be used to communicate with the LM32 Soft-CPU from the host system (or from other Wishbone devices on the same SoC).
  2. on the host system: use eb-read to read the value of the counter
  3. on the host system" use eb-write to write a value to the input register
