Red Pitaya FPGA Project 4 – Frequency Counter

Introduction On the way to a powerful acquisition systems let us make a quick detour and create a useful and simple project – the Frequency Counter. Yes, to measure frequencies one can use Red Pitaya’s native apps such as Oscilloscope or Spectrum Analyzer, however, our program will be able to determine frequencies with much higher…

Red Pitaya FPGA Project 3 – Stopwatch

In this Red Pitaya FPGA project we will learn about communication between the Linux processing system and the programmable logic. We will demonstrate the basic functionality with a simple FPGA project – Stopwatch. The FPGA algorithm will be based on a 32-bit binary counter with Clock Enable (CE) and Synchronous Clear (SCLR) inputs which we…

Red Pitaya FPGA Project 2 – Knight Rider Lights

Introduction A blinking LED is one thing, but a true light show is something one can actually be proud of. In the previous post we built a very simple FPGA program that made one LED on Red Pitaya blink. For such a simple project we constructed the necessary logic by graphically connecting different blocks in Vivado’s…

Red Pitaya FPGA Project 1 – LED Blinker

Introduction Red Pitaya is a Zynq7 FPGA-based low cost electronic board with many components such as two core ARM processor, fast ADCs, fast DACs, USB, LAN, etc. In many aspects Red Pitaya is similar to the Arduino or Rasbery Pi with a large community of enthusiasts and increasing collection of open-source material. What makes Red…
