|The Monthly Theme You Voted For: Programmable Logic|
|Project14 | Build Projects that Use a Programmable Logic Device such as FPGA or CPLD!|
The theme this month is Programmable Logic and it comes from a suggestion from kk99 . You can do any project that uses programmable logic such as an FPGA or a CPLD project. This will be a good opportunity for many people on the community to try their hands on an FPGA (Field Programmable Logic Gate) project. FPGA is a type of Integrated Circuit that can be reconfigured again and again and used to perform different tasks. You can configure FPGA to function as a processor, then reconfigure it to function as a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), a hardware video encoder, and literally any digital integrated circuit you can imagine. As the term logic gate suggests, an FPGA consists of a large number of logic gates and flip-flops grouped into Configurable Logic Blocks (CLBs). Thousands of CLB are embedded in a programmable matrix that can be interconnected to one another to implement a specific circuit functionality. FPGAs are quite cheap and they are getting easier to program.
If you're new to FPGA we suggest that you check out element14 Essentials: FPGA I. Andy West has some great videos on element14 presents such as Episode 353: Program Your Own FPGA Video Game , Episode 371: FPGA "Game Genie" for Atari 2600 , and Episode 388: FPGA MIDI Music Synthesizer. We also had a Path to Programmable online training program for programmable devices which introduced many of our members to FPGA. Last year, Arduino released the VIDOR 4000 in Recorded Live Stream: Arduino MKR VIDOR 4000 - Democratizing FPGA! and we held a Freedom of FPGA competition that produced a couple of great projects such as On-line battery bank monitor and Vidor4000 CAN-Bus Project . We are giving away a limited number of Arduino VIDOR 4000 (on board FPGA) boards left over from this project competition so if you have a project proposal that uses one of them!

Step 2: Post in the comments section below to begin a discussion on your idea. Videos, pictures and text are all welcomed forms of submission.
Step 3: Submit a blog post of your progress on your project by the end of the month. You are free to submit as many blog entries as you like until the beginning of the next theme.
Be sure to include video proof of your project!
Visit: Programmable Logic or tag your project blog programmablelogicch
You have until June 14th End of Day to submit your completed project!
A jury consisting of your peers will judge project submissions!
