The first thing one usually does when getting started with FPGAs is to look for an appropriate development board or starter kit. As there are a lot of options out there, this could be quite a difficult matter.
This blog post should give an overview of cheap FPGA boards at a price mark between $20 and $100.
There is a lot of information on the web how to upgrade or hack your Voltcraft/Hantek/Tekway digital oscilloscope, but because there is so many information, things can get a it confusing and take some time to read. That’s why I decided to write my own quick guide bringing together most important information and making things easy. Enjoy!
The Arduino is a great platform for a lot of projects in electronics since you do not have to start from scratch – not in hardware nor in software, since it comes with a nice framework including a bunch of useful libraries. This makes it possible to control an Arduino board over USB with a few lines of code.
In this article I want to summarize how to do this and how to write your own interface application.
