Suggested Add-ons

Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are a powerful tool used by embedded systems engineers, but until now they have largely been inaccessible to Makers. FPGAs allow you to use programming to change the hardware functionality of a chip without the need of a breadboard or a soldering iron. This easy-to-follow book helps Makers get over that initial conceptual hump and sets them on the path to creating amazing projects. Step-by-step instructions for eight fun projects allows the intermediate Maker to get up and running right away with low-cost FPGA boards.


Projects Included

  • Construct a binary counter using FPGA Circuit Schematic Design Entry
  • Build a VTECH computer that allows you to write and run your own CARDIAC programs
  • Create a real System on Chip (SoC) Design
  • Design two classic arcade games that you’ll love to play
  • Enact a Bitcoin mining project
  • Create a Software-Defined Radio, the so-called "holy grail" of embedded design
