Well, it’s been a slow couple of weeks for blog posts! Hoppasuarus had to take a break from blogging for a while and it has been a journey trying to fill in. In the meantime we’ve been finishing up a new learn website and have been lining up some new tutorials. The plan is to get the blog back on track by bringing in some fresh blood for FPGA news and by writing a bunch of new tutorials at the learn site. So keep tuned, if all goes as planned we should be seeing plenty of new blog posts here in the coming weeks.
The first of the new tutorials is a guide to installing Xilinx’s ISE WebPack. I can already hear what most people are thinking, “I installed that ages ago!”. For many of you this will be old news, but for those just joining us, it can be a godsend.
I just picked up a new touch screen laptop and had to go through the installation process anyway so I figured “Why not?”. It’s also a quick article to write for the new learning website. We are not officially announcing the new learning website until we get some more tutorials posted there. So if the content matter of the tutorial is not interesting maybe some of the old hands would be interested in a first glimpse of the new learning website.
Withoutany more rambling on, here is the Install Xilinx’s Free ISE WebPack tutorial.
Up next are tutorials about installing the Papilio Loader GUI on Mac OSX and, this is what I’m excited about, getting started with the Papilio Schematic Library!
