This workshop will introduce you to the world of FPGAs. FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Array) can be found in almost any electronic device on the market today.
-A Computer with VMware installed will need to be brought to the workshop.
- Introduction to:
- what an FPGA is and why you would use it,
- how an FPGA is different than a microprocessor,
- the mindset needed to plan a FPGA design,
- and development board & integrated development environment (IDE).
- Review and examination of code snippets.
- SPI encoder / decoder
- Binary to seven segment encoder
- Clock dividers
- Including some of my current projects
You will leave with a development board, programming software, example code and the knowledge to use and expand upon them.
