The Go Board

I'm thrilled you're here! It's my goal to make learning about FPGAs as enjoyable an experience as possible. I hope you find the tutorials and videos helpful. I highly recommend going through them in order, as they build on each other. Feel free to bookmark this page as a reference to come back to.

I Just Received a Go Board, Where Do I Begin?

First things first, let's make sure the Go Board was not damaged in shipping. Get a Micro-USB cable and plug in the Go Board. You should see the PWR LED illuminate immediately. Push the 4 buttons, you should see LEDs toggling, as well as the 7-Segment Display. If that looks good, you're good to go! Let's get started learning.
