Learning FPGAs: Digital Design for Beginners with Mojo and Lucid HDL
Learn how to design digital circuits with FPGAs (field-programmable gate arrays), the devices that reconfigure themselves to become the very hardware circuits you set out to program. With this practical guide, author Justin Rajewski shows you hands-on how to create FPGA projects, whether youre a programmer, engineer, product designer, or maker. Youll quickly go from the basics to designing your own processor.
Designing digital circuits used to be a long and costly endeavor that only big companies could pursue. FPGAs make the process much easier, and now theyre affordable enough even for hobbyists. If youre familiar with electricity and basic electrical components, this book starts simply and progresses through increasingly complex projects.
- Set up your environment by installing Xilinx ISE and the authors Mojo IDE
- Learn how hardware designs are broken into modules, comparable to functions in a software program
- Create digital hardware designs and learn the basics on how theyll be implemented by the FPGA
- Build your projects with Lucid, a beginner-friendly hardware description language, based on Verilog, with syntax similar to C/C++ and Java
