Introduction to FPGA Programming

21/08/2019, hardwarebee

This tutorial outlines the development flow for FPGA programming and presents a simplified example to elaborate FPGA programming in real life. The example is based on Intel’s development board that consists of analog-to-digital converters (ADC) and digital-to-analog converter (DAC).
 
For the tools chain, we will be using Quartus 16.0

Behavioral Simulation in FPGAs

16/08/2019, hardwarebee

An FPGA simulation can roughly be defined as an attempt to imitate or recreate the execution of a design or the operation of a system in an artificially produced environment. The simulation uses a model that is extremely close to or almost the same as the actual subject at question.
