FPGA Study and Experimentation Group

A field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is an integrated circuit designed to be configured by a customer or a designer after manufacturing – hence "field-programmable". The FPGA configuration is generally specified using a hardware description language (HDL), typically VHDL or Verilog. Join us for self-directed study and experimentation with FPGAs. Further discussion is available on the Nova Labs Electronics mailing list <[masked]>.

    Very good topic - provided an overview and on hands example of establishing simple communications and data between the fpga thru the avr to the desktop computing device. Also provided onhands use of the ISE programming interface.

    Hopefully, those who went found the talk useful. I posted the outline slides I used on the FPGA wiki under Presentations.

    For those that didn't go, I mostly gave an overview of the AVR Interface module capabilities, then did a walkthrough of the Hello World Tutorial from the Mojo website. There were lots of questions, so that's as far as we got.

    I think something that might be useful is a tutorial with a mapping of verilog code snippets to synthesized logic. That might help those who don't have a good grasp of hardware description languages like verilog vs general purpose programming languages. Just a thought...

    If there's interest, I have material I could go over using the Mojo tutorials. I haven't had time to put together a formal presentation yet, but I could do some walkthroughs of some of the AVR UART/SPI <-> FPGA tutorials, including how to retrieve ADC sample data on the FPGA.
