I've been really enjoying following along with Path to Programmable - both with the blogs on here and the Avnet Speedway course that seems to be an earlier version of P2P.


One thing I have found so far is that "Path to Programmable" is a slightly misleading title. I'm new to FPGAs. Completely new. I was hoping to get a good intro to FPGAs by following this, but that's not really been the case.


The Path to Programmable looks good but it seem to be all about the transition from FPGAs to the Xilinx Zynq SoC. A knowledge of VHDL or Verilog is assumed. Actually, that's not quite true. You may not need to know any to follow along with P2P, but you won't really learn any either. Perhaps it should be called "Path to SoC" or "Path to Zynq".


I'll still be following P2P with interest, but I'm going to give priority to my FPGA groundwork first.
