Such actual implementation is useful to everyone. Why use up most of the valuable FPGA resources unless absolutely necessary? In industry you use the technique that requires the least amount of resources and adds to the company IP portfolio. You can implement a lot of functionality in a 6LX4 or in the Spartan 3E Starter Board even with the smallest device using standard digital techniques. The larger issue is why promote a concept that is, in my considerable industry experience not used, as being necessary and the only flow possible? I have a theory on the probable answer

Real Analog: Circuits 1 "Real Analog" is a comprehensive collection of free educational materials that seamlessly blend hands-on design projects with theoretical concepts and circuit analysis techniques.

Real Analog, the Analog Discovery and Analog Parts Kit form the core of a world-class engineering educational program that can be used by themselves or in support of existing curricular materials. Students with their own design kits learn more, learn faster, retain information longer, and have a more enjoyable experience - now every student can take charge of their education for less than the cost of a textbook!

Schneider This course provides an introduction to computer programming where it is assumed you have no prior programming experience. The Python programming language is used to present various constructs that are present, in one form or another, in nearly all the major computer languages. Python is used because it is generally easier to learn than most other languages and yet it is truly an "industrial strength" language used throughout industry and academia.

Topics to be covered include: data type, assignment, arithmetic, input and output, type conversion, functions, strings, lists, loops, file manipulation, conditional statements, objects, modules, recursion, and dictionaries. Having mastered the material in this course you will be able to implement Python programs to solve any number of problems including some truly challenging ones!

Furthermore, having learned this material, you will be much better prepared to learn other languages such as C and Java. FPGA-based resources Author: Clint Cole "Real Digital" is a collection of educational materials developed for use in introductory digital design classes. It is presented as an ordered series of modules that contain written chapters, exercises and hands-on design projects. Each module corresponds to about three lectures, or one week, in a typical University setting.

Real Digital is also available in print form, and can be bundled with a Basys 2 or Nexys 2 for a discount. See the textbook category for more information. These tutorials cover a wide spectrum, from basic information for beginners to advanced design topics.
