I bought a Papillio One a few years ago and am only now getting around to working with it.
I designed ASICs and Xilinx, Altera and Lattice FPGA circuits for years and worked for one
of the mentioned companies so I have always had this thought that it should be a snap
getting started with Papillio.
Problem is, I am confused with things the differences between ZAP and DesignLab
and which one should be used, etc. I have experience with Arduino and all that so I think
this should not be a big effort. I have ISE Webpack already and want to use just the schematic
entry for beginning students of mine here in Colorado.
QUESTION: Is there a GOOD and current tutorial or has anyone written a GOOD book on the Papillio?
Initially, I just want to download a "sketch" that will run on this older Papillio One that I have in a "hello world"
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have other FPGA development platforms that I could use, but
I like the Arduino tie-in as that is one area my students are already conversant in.
