I've always been curious about doing something with FPGA hardware, but never had any idea of a feasible.
I already known some about FPGA programming, well, nuts and bolts of the basic concept i mean, like Basic Introduction and Design flow of Programmable Logic Device FPGA, that helps a lot for me for the earlier time by the way (If you also need to pick up this, you can check it out here).
when i first started looking at Arduino I am just feeling: what's something meaty or complex / involved that really taxes the hardware to its limits?
For me, one Arduino example would be motion simulation: controlling 2-6 motors / actuators with PID processing for motor control, interfacing to a PC for force and acceleration inputs, with some limit switch and overheat / overcurrent failsafes. I have seen these in action, and have a very simple understanding of what is involved. It's practical, real-time, dynamically physical and gives me an idea of what is possible vs the blink without delay sketch.
I am keen to delve deeper into FPGAs.
In my youtube travels, I have seen lots of arcade games and VGA drivers, blinking leds (!!), bitcoin miners and musical keyboards.
What really impressed me was embedding an Atmel uC into the FPGA, and being able to program that embedded processor with Arduino IDE.
But like the blinking led examples for Arduino, the FPGA examples I am seeing seem more theoretical, or entertaining.
I guess I am looking for more real-world applications of FPGAs and particularly examples where the technology is being used to its potential. I want to know what I can aim for in my learning, what I can aspire to.
