    What's really amazing is that something so simple was used to play videogame, and we liked it It's almost p*rnographic : twelve 7400 serie IC one 555 one LM340three MOS 65**

    Device locked licence ?

    Wonderfull ! thanks !
  4. Friendly greetings ! I see some (more or less cheap) board that come with a device locked vivado/ISE licence. It provide an "augmented" software suite (eg : chipscope pro) and (eventually) some ip core strictly related to the card. Node locked licence, and floating licence are super-expensive for the hobbyist. Do you know of there is a way to buy a device locked licence (eg : for the papilio pro) The xilinx website is really :angry: so perhaps it's available somewhere ... but couldn't find it. (eg: i can't even access the online store )

    Ho ok thank you

    papillio pro schematic

    Hello ! i'm reading the schematic of the papilio pro, here http://papilio.cc/index.php?n=Papilio.PapilioPro The spec say there is a 32MHz XO but the schematic show a 6Mhz XO. Is there some trick i don't know about ? or an error ? Thank you
  7. a+ is a channel a- is another channel, everything else is ground ? (Oooo guess who doesn't have a multimeter )
  8. Hello everyone, i can find the schematic of this wing http://store.gadgetfactory.net/audio-wing/ (there is the schematic of the dual input on the website, but where is the single output ?) Thank you

    The next generation Papilio - help me shape it.

    I checked some tutorials about this but i got some problem because of some difference between version of ISE. (where the hell is the library manager now ? )

    The next generation Papilio - help me shape it.

    The real problem here is "up-to-date" but i'll try to contribute when i can. thank you
  11. That's papilio & logic And papilio + gic. And the gic of papiliogic could be... mmmm. Graphical err... Imagination & Conception ? Graphical Integration & Conception ? Gross Inception Componant ? Guaranteed Instant Craziness ? Graphical Interface for Conception ? Going In Circle ? Generaly Impatient Constructor ? Well mmmm, dunno
  12. I'm my wet dreams, i'm designing my board using the very awesome and well know logisim software. So ... LogiFPGA, unfortunally it's a kickstarter project for the raspberry pi. Perhaps ... papiliogic ?

    Friendly greetings ! I'm still a newbie, i'm very very interested in FPGA, mostly because i'm a sysadmin and i believe in FPGA embedded in a server for some specialised stuff the cpu suck at. But i'm doing it as a hobby because i don't know any company crazy enough to believe this, so i'm on my own budget Being a newbie, what could i say ? keep it cheap and simple : i never wanted to buy thoses overpriced dev board with tons of stuff i'll probably never need. Arduino like or arduino compatible shield : Yes thats nice. But ... I have some arduino shield, including an ethernet shield. can i use it with the papilio pro ? i have no idea, at all. showcase : i bought the papilio pro as soon as i saw the SID player video. you need as much "cool" showcase as you can ZPUino & AVR : i don't care. probably some people like this. high speed serial : yesssss pleaaaase ! i don't know if i'll ever need it but that's a good selling point. (the arduino certainly can't do that) RAM : i don't know if i'll ever need it, i'll probably need it yes. but that's another selling point hdmi ouput : well... meh. if you can provide well documented, easy-to-use, up-to-date ip core. Sure why not, but the VGA shield seem good enough for me. (i'm not going to plug my fpga board on a high end expensive screen that have only dvi & hdmi) hdmi input : i, don't, care. if i really want to process image/video, i'll do it using the usb port. or buy a specialised fpga card. (and good luck to get free ip core for video processing) sram over sdram ? i don't know, i never tried to use the ram ... but i will So, do i really need more stuff on the board ? Nope, not really. Whatever you do, please keep in mind that it shouldn't be too fragile or, at least, doesn't LOOK too fragile. The major selling point of the arduino is : cheap, easy to use, the shields, and ... gigatoooooooooons of library & endless count of documentation/tutorial. The major problem with fpga is : very closed system, very very expensive software & ip core. Arduino got a critical mass were people write bit of documentation here and there, others compile them in something readable, so you'll never be alone as long as you can STFW. Raspberry pi : mmm.... almost, not sure. All FPGA boards : lost deep in abyss. Whatever helping to connect to the modern world is good for me. VGA : it's ok, no need for hdmi USB : Yes, of course. best interface, it power the board, it program the board, it can be used to connect to program running on the pc Audio : Yep Ethernet : the arduino shield ? or embedded on the board with PoE to power it ? Other IO : i use my cheap oscillo/logic-analyzer for now What i need, i really need, is : up-to-date documentation, a collection of free ip core. (yes i know, it's the most annoying stuff to do). And... ho, while i'm here : where is the wiki ? Thx
