mithrothe idea with the camera is that you can see the LED lights flashing. I also want to check against real world displays because FPGAs are very tolerant and things being wrong were as displays are not02:32
mithroi'm not at the stage were I want to solder stuff to an Atlys board to read the LED statuses02:34
mithroplus it also lets you see what configuration the jumpers are in and switches02:34

tija_mithro: What ever the leds show can be output via the control port by sending signals. Also all the switches can be accessed using control port.04:53
mithrotija_: you assume that you haven't screwed up your control ports and that it's returning the right thing04:54
tija_mithro: there is no need to solder anything to access it04:55
mithrotija_: well with a specifically design FPGA, that would be the case04:56
mithrotija_: but I'm thinking about the Atlys at the moment04:56
tija_mithro: I am talking about the atlys. What case are you talking about?04:57
mithrotija_: the first thing you want to do when starting to program an FPGA is to do a simple LED flash test right, make the LED flash at 1Hz or something04:58
mithrotija_: how do you do that?04:59
tija_mithro: The status of the leds are captured and send via usb to the host and then to remote computer at small interval. The remote user can check the status of the led(1/0) and know whether it is working. But we have to give them a black box which allows usb transmission and teach them how to use it which will be too much for a noob.05:04
tija_mithro: do I make sense?05:12
mithrohow is the status of the leds captured?05:12
tija_mithro: Let us assume the project can be divided into two part, 1)user design 2) module which sends data which we have written and will be used as API05:13
tija_the user module will drive the LEDS05:13
mithrotija_: I'm trying to avoid anything which changes the normal FPGA development process (IE having to include our module into their design)05:14
tija_the 2nd module has a timer which it uses to sample the leds and then send it via USB.05:15
tija_mithro: I get you point. But the module can be written in such a way that the user doesn't need to know anything other than making sure led register are named in a certain way.05:18
tija_mithro: How are you planning to program the fpga remotely?05:30
