Tutorial: How to use the BASCOM-AVR IDE and the Papilio One to run BASIC programs on an FPGA

Prior to starting this tutorial, you should verify that the FTDI drivers are installed correctly and verify that your Papilio One board is working correctly by following the Papilio One Quickstart Guide.

Overview:

This tutorial will demonstrate how to easily and seamlessly use the BASCOM-AVR IDE to develop and compile BASIC programs that will run on the pre-synthesized open source AVR8 soft-processor (based on the ATmega103). The AVR8 softprocessor used in this tutorial is optimized to run on Gadget Factory’s Papilio One FPGA development platform, and is automatically loaded to the FPGA when you tell BASCOM to program the device.
