It’s well known that FPGAs can be difficult to get started with, to the point of being downright intimidating. We’re always on the lookout for information that can help make the learning curve a little less… curvy. Today we’ve got an easy-to-follow information compilation for understanding FPGAs and how they work, courtesy of FPGAhacker. Let’s just call it some background info that everyone who is looking to get into FPGA hacking will need to understand.
Some of the key knowledge for learning FPGAs includes Boolean algebra, circuitry, combinational logic, and all the binary you can handle. Thankfully, FPGAhacker has addressed each of these concepts and how they are used in an FPGA as a whole. Even if you are a veteran FPGA hacker, it’s still worth a quick review session.
So there ya go! Here’s the link: Getting Into FPGA Hacking Series, parts 1 – 4.
