Title: Starting FPGA understanding and experimentals
Post by: DF8OE on 16. April 2020, 12:42:20
|ISE installation tutorial is out in the wilderness and I suggested to start with an unexpensive development board called Mojo V3 (https://www.ebay.de/itm/Mojo-V3-FPGA-Development-Board-Module-Spartan-6-XC6SLX9-for-Arduino-DIY-DE/122831191265)|
I will supply some more informations and hints how to start using Spartan XC6SLX9 now.
Of course there are technical documentations available for Mojo:
- Schematics for Mojo (http://embeddedmicro.com/media/wysiwyg/mojo/v3-sch.pdf)
- Base Project (you will need that for every new project - it contains pin definitions, IO etc. for Mojo (https://github.com/embmicro/mojo-base-project/archive/master.zip)
- Binary for the installed LED-Demo (http://embeddedmicro.com/media/wysiwyg/mojo/led_wave.bin)
- Tutorials (https://alchitry.com/pages/verilog-fpga-tutorials)
There is an IDE for working with Mojo similar to Arduino IDE (what surprise: Mojo was released by Adafruit). Installing this IDE on Arch Linux is quite easy:
This will end in an error because the url for downloading has changed. Now simply modify the download url which is located in PKGBUILD (you can find PKGBUILD for mojo-ide in ~/.cache/yay/mojo-ide/ ) following information from AUR database (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/mojo-ide/). Now finish the installation like that:
sudo pacman -U mojo-ide-B1.3.6-1-x86_64.pkg.tar
Now Mojo IDE is ready for start. You need to configure the path to Xilinx ISE binary and (if connected) the serial port for Mojo board (which is usually /dev/ttyACM0).
Now you need some inspiration (https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=mojo+v3) ::)
