  • Opsis, Microblaze And Linux – How To Run Linux On Numato Opsis Board

    Introduction FPGAs are best known for their flexibility and versatility. Such flexibility allows FPGAs not only to be used for custom logic circuits but also implement a processor on it and even run Linux (or other operating system) on the processor. The possibilities are only limited by imagination, and also by FPGA speed grade and […]

  • Generating simple square wave using FPGA

    Introduction While learning FPGAs or embedded system, generating a square wave is probably one of the simplest experiment to try out. Doing this exercise helps the learner get familiar with IOs, their configuration and simple language constructs. This article talks about how to generate a square wave using FPGA. Although this article uses Numato Lab […]
