This post is a quick review of a method to add a MicroBlaze .elf file to a bitfile and program the Flash so your Arty can operate standalone. All code is available on GitHub. Digilent programming guide info is here. An overview of the test subsystem is shown below. We have three main IO blocks […]Read more "Programming Arty Flash with a .bit and .elf"
In this brief post we will cover connecting an I2C compass sensor to Arty, specifically an HMC6352. The outcome is to demonstrate how to use the I2c function calls to read data from an I2C device. See previous posts for details on the platform used, but in practice the C code can be used with any […]Read more "Connecting an I2C compass to Arty"
In this post we will provide an overview of the system used in the subsequent ARTY posts to check we can communicate with various peripherals. All scripts and c code for these examples can be found at https://github.com/thewindop/fpgaArtyExamples All FW is derived from the Xilinx examples which can also be used to expand your own […]Read more "Arty microblaze example"
