This page has not completed review yet.
This submission will now wait until an administrator reviews it and chooses whether to add it to the directory. If you would like to become an admin, then visit the directory mailing list and introduce yourself.
Admins, this may be a request for a new entry. First run some searches for the page. Admins may create the page after making sure that it doesn't already exist under a similar name. (You may also want to edit the part of the URL after "/Entry/", then load that address, to make sure it is concise and doesn't contain strange characters or unwanted spaces.)
Admins, when you are done incorporating any needed changes from this page into a main entry, please edit this page and change the following text from:
|Finished review=No to:
|Finished review=yes. This helps keep submissions organized. (Note that doing this isn't what adds the entry to the directory.)
|Short description||Create bare-metal FPGA designs without Verilog or VHDL|
|Full description||FPGAsm is a low-level alternative to verilog and VHDL. A near-instant 'assembler for FPGAs', this simple yet powerful language facilitates bottom-up design, layout and wiring of modules, and generation of .xdl output. With about 10 keywords to learn, you can start making circuits in minutes. Now you can focus on learning the ins and outs of the FPGA instead of complex tools and languages. Fast turnaround time and bottom-up approach invite exploration, experimentation, live circuit testing and physical test harness creation, radically changing the workflow. FPGAsm offers you an opportunity to REALLY understand Xilinx FPGAs, create circuits DIRECTLY on the FPGA using an opensource tool, and share your knowlege and projects with the community.|
