Let's try to do something real with the Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA: write a set of data to an SD card.   To boost the FPGA skills, I'm refreshing theory and checking out some real designs. For a standalone XuLA2 board, talking to SD cards is a good practical example.   There's  a Micro SD slot on the XuLA2 models. The only other component you need is a spare Micro SD card.   Don't use an SD card with your marriage photo shoot on it. You'll very likely loose that when you t ...
I purchased a Xess XuLA2. It arrived this morning. This post is the story of my first steps     I have a little bit of experience with FPGAs. I learned digital electronics in the early-to-mid 80's. My VHDL skills are beginner level and I've worked with the Xilinx Spartan 6 and development tools. This is my experience to run a first design on the XuLA2 board   I have done training work with the Spartan 6 FPGA before. The Xilinx development environment is running on my lapto ...
