I've recently started learning more about FPGA's and so I picked up the AT40K40AL FPGA to start learning with.
I'm not sure what software they suggest you use to develop with, but the one page on their entire website that seems to mention anything at all about an IDE for FPGA development is here... and I tried to install id76install.exe but after installation it just crashes.
Does anyone know of a third-party tool for writing Verilog and then compiling/routing/programming the FPGA and it's config EEPROM?
I'm still a newb to FPGA development (but I'm quite good with AVRs and other 8- and 32-bit micros) so this is certainly a steep learning curve.
I'm also wondering why the #%@# I haven't been on AVR Freaks before. I love my AVRs, within a month of starting to learn about microcontrollers I had a huge pile of tubes of different AVRs, plus three different programmers. That was quite a while ago! Now I'm going to school to become an EE and I still use AVRs all the time. They are so easy to use, and so easy to program. Definitely going to be on here more often!
