    Hello, I am using DesignLab 1.0.8 under Linux and I have a small problem when generating new bit files. The problem is that the case of the files is different from the default and therefore the IDE won't flash my new file. I either need to rename the file or create a symlink. For example the Multiple_Serial_Ports example Creates a Papilio_Pro.bit file while the IDE expects papilio_pro.bit. With kind regards

    I have used SK Pang Electronics (skpang.co.uk) which is a company based in the UK. I just checked and they have the Papilio Pro and Duo in stock. They are out of stock of other items. I noticed that prices rose significantly around the time of the Brexit result, and the fall of the UK pound against the dollar and other currencies. Then again you will get a better rate with the euro against the pound, which will offset for you. Buy now while the UK is still in the EU :-) good luck... --Gary

    The libraries are a fantastic aspect of the Arduino and the key thing that makes it a worthwhile if otherwise rather flawed platform. It took me a long time to warm up to Arduino but I love the way I can grab some widget and very often grab a library with example code to make it do something right away. It provides a great way to test the thing out and explore its capabilities right off the bat. I'd love to see a similar collection of HDL modules form, blocks of code that do the grunt work like initializing the device and communicating via whatever interface it uses and bring the controls out to sensible interfaces that can be tied into other modules in the top level file. Ideally these modules should be well commented, especially at the top level explaining what all the inputs and outputs do and what sort of signals they expect.

    Hi all, over the last half year I have implemented a processor and surrounding SoC bringing the RISC-V ISA (http://riscv.org) to the Papilio Pro. It implements the 32Bit integer subset (RV32IM). The project is hosted on Gitub (https://github.com/bonfireprocessor). It still needs some additional documentation, cleanup and ready-to-run ISE projects to make it easy reproducable for others. But I post this link now, to find out if anybody is interested in my work. I will soon also post a bitstream here so anybody with access to a Papilio Pro can play with it. I have also ported eLua to it http://www.eluaproject.net @Jack: If you like I can also present the project in the GadgetFactory blog. Regards Thomas
