"The Thing": FPGA + STM32, Multicomp compatibile

If you made your own board, post here, unless you built a Maple or Maple mini clone etc

"The Thing": FPGA + STM32, Multicomp compatibile

Added a repository on Github for the Quartus II projects and the related .ino sketch files for the STM32 side...

Here some fun with leds... :lol: :

Very impressive development board! I saw your development board for the first time in hackaday.

I always wanted to deal with FPGAs. That's why a couple of years ago I bought an EP2C5T144 ALTERA FPGA development board but all I could do was blink a few LEDs.

I've found a great book to start from 0 with VHDL, and it' free...: http://freerangefactory.org/pdf/df344hd ... e_vhdl.pdf (highly recommended)

The real problem is the time... as usual... :roll:
