Steve Grace, a Xilinx Engineer, gives a nice presentation at SparkFun on FPGA’s. While this presentation is not geared for beginners it does an amazing job of introducing all of the tools and techniques available with FPGA’s once you get to the intermediate level. Steve also does a very nice job of showing how your HDL code maps to the physical elements on the FPGA and how you can dig in and take a look. If you are into FPGA’s it is definitely an educational video to watch. Thank you Steve and SparkFun!
Tune in this Friday, December 13th, at 1PM Mountain Standard Time, for a special LIVE Lunch and Learn from SparkFun Electronics! Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are extremely powerful parts with a steep learning curve. This presentation by FPGA engineer Steve Grace will go over what an FPGA is from both from the application and silicon perspectives, and introduce you to programming and development on Open Source Hardware. Steve will demonstrate code running on a Papilio Pro (papilio.cc) and Zedboard (www.zedboard.org), talk about how code maps to the hardware, and provide a high-level overview of in-chip debugging. One hour.
