Hi NCLUGers,

What: August NCLUG Meeting
When: Tuesday August 13th, 6pm (Tomorrow)
Where: Dazbog Coffee (downstairs) 401 Mason Court, 
    Fort Collins, CO 80524

Please join us again NCLUG at Dazbog Coffee on Tuesday. 

Stephen Warren will be presenting about FPGAs: 

> I will talk a bit about FPGAs:
> ... what they are, how they work, how to "program" them.
> I happen to have a Xilinx FPGA on the board I own, so my talk will use
> that and Xilinx's binary-only tools for Linux for the examples. I'll
> cover a little bit re: a few gotchas running those tools on Ubuntu for
> the obligatory Linux-specific content, but I'll probably concentrate
> more on the pure HW in general, FPGAs themselves, and the
> cross-vendor/standard Verilog "programming" language, etc. Yes, this
> is a little off-topic for a Linux group, but quite interesting all the
> same!
> Amongst some simpler things, I'll demo a game of pong that I created
> as HW state machines, without any actual code/CPU-instructions. It has
> sound, graphics, and buttons!

See you there!

James DeWitt
