Welcome to Embedded Micro!
What is an FPGA?
The Mojo is now Arduino Compatible!
We now have an Arduino compatible bootloader for the microcontroller on the Mojo V3 as well as an Arduino sketch of our loading code. This means that it is now easier than ever to edit the basic code and create projects that use both the microcontroller and the FPGA on the Mojo!
There are many things that FPGAs are great for, however, there are some things that are much easier to do with a processor. By taking advantage of the microcontroller on the Mojo, all the difficult control functions can be performed on the microcontroller with the FPGA doing the heavy lifting.
We already have a few projects in mind, but we're excited to see what you can come up with!
If you already have a Mojo V3, head over to the Setting up the Arduino IDE tutorial for instructions on how to get started.
If you don't have a Mojo already, all new Mojos are shipping pre-programmed with the Arduino compatible bootloader.
It's time to go make somthing awesome!
Introducing the SDRAM Shield
We are now selling the SDRAM Shield! This shield is rocking 256Mbits (32MB) of SDRAM. This shield is great when the RAM inside the FPGA just isn't enough for your project. This is enought memory to store images from a camera, or maybe frames to be drawn to a display. For whatever you want it for, this small chip packs a good amount of memory!
Be sure to also check out the example project on the product page for a very basic SDRAM controller.
