Ben Heck goes over some CPLD and FPGA basics

at 7:11 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Computer Hacks, Cool Gadgets, DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks


Ben goes over some basics of CPLD and FPGAs. If you need a ton of power and a microcontroller just won’t cut it, it might be time to move up to a CPLD or an FPGA. Watch as Ben shows us some results of the first few Hello World like programs he runs on an Altera CPLD. Looks like there would be a steep learning curve to become proficient in VHDL or Verilog.

    great tutorial, cocky intro,
    I’m going to get myself one of those cyclone II development kit 🙂

  2. David Says:

    Ben, that was a great video. I would like to hear more from you on the FPGA topic.

  3. George Johnson Says:

    I can’t wait to get into some FPGA stuff, but just don’t have the time or the cash for a dev board right now.

    There’s the Z-80 (upgrade) that one guy made, that incorporates a FPGA that you can access. So for about $80, you get the Z-80 system, plus the FPGA, in a sort of “dev” board.
