vhdlnerd Posted March 30, 2012 Report Share Posted March 30, 2012 Hi! I did not see an forum for such things as introductions. Since I just got a Papilio One (250K), I'll use just this forum. I'm just getting back into hobbyist electronics. I used to do a lot of stuff at home before I got a job in digital design -- nothing like having to do a hobby for a living to kill the fun of it. :-) I wanted to get into using the Arduino but wanted to add a FPGA to the mix and that search led me here. I bought the Papilio One and the VGA wing to play with. I started designing the over-done-but-always-fun VGA controller. I already checked out the VGA code here and at OpenCores (and I've done one myself in the past); so, I might have something to show in a week or two. Anyway, as you can tell from my alias, I know VHDL -- I've been coding in VHDL for a living for 12+ years. I can't say I know everything about VHDL (or my alias would be "VHDL Guru" :-) but I'm glad to share any of my expertise with the forum members when I can. I've got experience mostly with Xilinx devices (CPLDs and all the way up to the new 7 series) but I've done design work on Lattice and Actel FPGAs, also. I look forward to being part of the Papilio community. -vn Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
