I just heard from Sven in Sweden. It seems that his tutorial "How To Design an FPGA From Scratch" is a runaway success and he's added five more sections!
A couple of weeks ago I published an article by Sven Andersson titled How to design an FPGA from scratch. As I mentioned at that time, when veteran ASIC designer Sven decided to learn how to work with FPGAs, he created create this step-by-step tutorial in order to teach others.
Well, this little scamp (the tutorial, not Sven) immediately shot to the "top of the charts" on Programmable Logic Design Line where it continues to lead the pack of our "Most Popular Articles". Meanwhile, as soon as I'd posted the article, Sven saw a dramatic surge in traffic to his Main Tutorial Website. In fact, Sven sent me a copy of his statistics page, which showed a sudden exponential rise that shot off the page.
Anyway, Sven just emailed me to say that he's added four more sections to the tutorial:
Part 39. Finishing the software device driver
Part 40. Using ChipScope
Part 41: Adding an interrupt controller
Part 42. Adding a timer/counter
Part 43. Installing a Linux OS
Also, in addition to a load of new FPGA design projects, it seems that Sven is now much in demand with regard to training newcomers about designing with FPGAs. Cool Beans!
