Today´s article will teach you how to create your own FPGA-based tilt sensing device. It is one of those really thorough tutorials where almost nothing is left to your imagination but the infinite applications you may develop. Cool right?
This project is based around the DEo-Nano board and its built-in tilt sensor. I am pretty sure you know what a tilt sensor is, but do you know how it works? Read this to find out the real physics behind this highly useful tiny device.
Another cool thing you will learn if you invest some time reading this article is to create your own, home-made, PCBs. You need to build one in order to be able to access the I/O pins of your DEo-Nano board. Everything couldn´t be easy, otherwise it wouldn´t be challenging and so boring.
All the rest you need is given, schematics, parts lists, code…So, what´s left for you to do is the funny stuff: building things and playing!
