Re: A/D implementation on FPGA

Generally, most FPGA companies provide an IP that you use to get this data and configure it the way you want. From here, the data is either stored, or sent over AXI to another IP. Xilinx provides instantiation templates of the ADC which you can modify to handle it the way you want. Since I usually w...

Hi Trollhammer, Thanks for the response. The general feedback I've been getting is what you are saying. Something that will allow someone familiar with the Arduino dev process to migrate to FPGA with very little resistance. As for getting a design from your head to the FPGA is difficult even with th...

Thanks for the feedback phalanx! I'll take it into consideration. I do want to mention that a lot of the software nowadays have moved away from schematic capture due to the complexity it has in general. As the years go by, designs get bigger and more complex and schematic capture gets harder to do. ...

Tutorial series?

Hi all, Thanks to phalanx getting an FPGA forum setup for us, I was talking in the IRC channel on doing a tutorial series to go over finer points of building a design from scratch for FPGAs. However, there are a lot of topics that can be covered in tutorials, and I'd like to stick with one until it ...

I agree. If Sparkfun wants to teach people more about electronics, this should be strongly considered. I did provide a Lunch & Learn to SFE on FPGAs back in December here: I also wrote a tutorial that should be up most any day now. I really want to continue...
