It seems 2018 is going to be the 'Year of the FPGA' here on element14 ('Forward Heroic Engineers of the World to a Flip-Flop Rich Future'), so I thought I'd join in, buy a small development board and do a simple project or two. The board I'm working with here is the Brevia2 board from Lattice[2].   Part 1 covered unpacking the board, connecting it to the computer and checking that it worked:   Booards and Boojums: Lattice XP2 Brevia2 Board: Part 1   In this part I'm going to tr ...
It seems that 2018 is going to be the 'Year of the FPGA' here on element14, so I thought I'd join in, buy a small development board and do a simple project or two.   Here's the board I settled on in the end. Rather than go for Xilinx, which I've worked with in the past, I decided to experiment with a Lattice FPGA and their toolset. I liked the look of this board because it's quite simple, with just an XP2 series FPGA part (in the kind of package where you can see all the pins) along wi ...
