As part of the Wuthering Bytes Festival in Hebden Bridge - we have just had a 2.5 day course introducing FPGA technology using the myStorm BlackIce board.
Day 1 was a practical hands on introduction to FPGA programming - using examples from the "Basic Verilog" folder of the attached repository link.
Day 2 took on the theme of recreating the 1949 Cambridge University EDSAC computer - but using a modern recreation of EDSAC running on the myStorm board.
All of the ChipHack resources are available from the repository link below - and my be used by others (eg hackspaces) to run their own FPGA courses. The myStorm boards were sponsored by the British Computer Society - and are also available on request to the BCS.
The event was videoed - and that footage will be published online in due course.
Thanks to the team from Embecosm, plus all the volunteers, who made this a very successful event.
Finally - on the last morning, we had a special guest appearance from Clifford Wolf - who arrived in Hebden Bridge for the open risc conference ORConf - and we were lucky enough to hear him talk, with comments and his wisdom, about the Project Icestorm open source FPGA toolchain.
We have now 3 versions of EDSAC running on the BlackIce board, from Bill Purvis, Richard Miller and Hatim Kanchwala.
Graham Markhall also has Clifford Wolf's PicoRiscV running on BlackIce hardware.
These further add to the 6502, Z80, J1 Forth cpu and OPC6 DIY cpu - that already run on BlackIce hardware.
