Re: FPGA programmers out there?

I couldn't understand how it's possible to write any assembler program with such strange limited assembler without choice of addressing methods. Z80 even uses backward order of operands (what a perversion!) Sure, a lot of time passed since that time. Today it's not a problem for me to write for any...

Re: FPGA programmers out there?

It really comes down to personal preference, in the end both languages accomplish the same thing. Verilog seems to be more common in the US and VHDL elsewhere. When I first got involved in FPGAs I started off using Verilog but somehow kept gravitating toward VHDL since there seemed to be a lot more ...

Re: FPGA programmers out there?

Working with a FPGA is not the same as writing software for a CPU. First you are not "programming" in the traditional sense, you are using a HDL (hardware description language) such as VHDL or Verilog to design and wire up a circuit. With modern FPGA's from Xilinx or Intel (formerly Altera...

Re: SDRAM board

I'm a bit late to game in this forum, just started with the MiSTer project but some notes with regard to soldering the SDRAM board. I've done a lot of soldering over the years. I also have a reflow over, hot air station and of course a hand iron. I've built 5 RAM boards (for myself and friends) and ...
