Some Notes on using FPGAs

A collection of various information I find useful.

Development Boards

Currently one of my favorite boards for work is the Avnet Spartan 6 LX9 board. For what you get it's insanely low-cost ($90). It includes a whole setup for working with the Microblaze core including a SDK license. It also includes a ChipScope license, see my blog post(external link) on the subject for some details.

For doing SDR work I had made my own development board, see ProjectMouldyRF.

Programming Tools

I've collected some information about using an FTDI FT2232D device as a programmer on Using JTAG over USB.

I also have described how to program CPLDs (or FPGAs) using SVF files, and automated the creation of such files along with the programming. See SVF Player over USB
