Intro to FPGA and CPLD: Lesson 3 Live!

Distributed Feeds - July 10, 2014 - 11:35am
This week we’re moving on to Lesson 3: Input & Output in our new PyroEDU course: An Introduction to CPLD and FPGA. Here’s an overview of the lesson:

"All FPGA and CPLD devices have general purpose input and output pins, often called GPIO. Here we will take a look at how to build a CPLD image and hardware to accept push-button input in order to affect output LEDs."

Cheaper FPGA boards are getting closer

Distributed Feeds - July 9, 2014 - 9:41am

Michael Dunn have done a research on FPGA boards available for less than $100. We all know that hobby market is always looking for low price hardware to do amazing projects. We already have almost free microcontroller boards including 8-bit and 32-bit ARM. FPGA always were was behind barrier. Not things seems to changing.

Today you can get quit several FPGA boards for your projects that are under $100 limit. You can find boards from Altera, Cypress, Lattice, Microsemi, Xilink and even more that aren’t listed. The lowest price you can find is like $4 for PSoC 4 FPGA board (at least more or less). In that price range you can get up to 22 kLE (logic elements). This is more than enough to run soft processor, build calculus intense projects like signal generators, scopes, signal processing modules and other projects where microcontrollers wouldn’t have enough juice. It takes some learning to get used to them, but there is quite enough tutorials to get started.

Intro to FPGA and CPLD: Lesson 2 Live!

Distributed Feeds - July 3, 2014 - 12:40pm
This week we’re moving on to Lesson 2: Hardware Hello world in our new PyroEDU course: An Introduction to CPLD and FPGA. Here’s an overview of the lesson:

"Building a ‘hello world’ application signifies a time honored approach to learning how to program. In this lesson, we will explore the first steps necessary for building and loading images onto a CPLD."
