For this course, we use the software Vivado for FPGA programming. The computers in the lab rooms are already installed with the necessary software. To use your own computer, you can refer to the following instructions: https://reference.digilentinc.com/learn/programmable-logic/tutorials/basys-3-getting-started/start
You can also find examples for the Basys 3 board and a master constraint file here: https://reference.digilentinc.com/reference/programmable-logic/basys-3/start
For technical questions, please post in Piazza, using the corresponding lab folder. Our assistants will try to respond quickly. For other inquiries please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Can I use my lab grades from previous years?
A: Yes. You can find your past lab grades in Moodle (Spring 2020).
Q: Can I use my lab grades from previous years and still do the labs?
A: Sure! Choose this option on the sign-up form that we provide in Moodle.
Q: Can I do the labs and decide at the end of the semester whether to use my grades from previous years?
A: No. You need to decide at the beginning of the semester. We provide a survey in Moodle.
Q: I don't have a partner. What do I do?
A: Make new friends and find one:) Otherwise we will pair you with another person who has not found a partner.
Q: Can we have groups of three students?
A: No. We will pair you with another person who has not found a partner. Groups of two are much better for your learning experience instead of three so we will only make exceptions if absolutely necessary.
Q: Are the lab sessions held in-person or online?
A: All lab sessions will be online for this semester until a further notice.
