F6EEQ Posted June 24, 2013 Report Share Posted June 24, 2013 Hi all, This post is probably a dumb one, and you all will laugh at me, but anyway, I have to ask the question. First I'm not sure this is the right place, but moderator could freely move it to the adequate chapter. As you may see from two or three other posting, I'm not familiar with digital design, that's the least you can say.I have basic knowledge of general electronics from my ham radio experience, and I recently acquired some modest knowledge in µproc development, enough at least to understand what I'm doing and settting up some small projects. My problem is that I did not yet understood very well what to do with FPGA.I had a look at the projects described here or in Hamster wiki and the majority deals with VGA oriented tasks (games, display...). The only one I found to be of interest (for me!) are the logic analyser and the FM transmitter, but it's a little bit out of my reach, at least until I understand a little more. I'm currently reading the book "Digital Mc Logic" and I try to understand, but it's more about basic "mathematical" knowledge than practice oriented.I've also downloaded "Intro to Spartan..." and I recently ordered Papilio Pro to have my hands in the dirt, so I hope to understand how it works.I also went through FPGA4fun,which is interesting and relatively basic. But still I'm trying to figure out what I could start as a project, after I'm through with these introductions.I've thousand of ideas with a PIC/AVR, but I'm not sure it could be done with FPGA or even if it would be of any interest/progress to do so, and moreover I lack the hability to think in term of "logic circuitry". I hope to have been clear, and if you could help me or direct me on a good related/beginner site I would appreciate very much. Thanks for your support.
