DE0 Nano Introduction

An Overview Of The DE0 Nano Introduction
           After building a simple VGA output program for the DE0 Nano, I felt it necessary to make a short intro article for how to get started with the DE0 Nano. Honestly, terasic did a great job already including many guides in pdf format to get you started. But I get the feeling people suffer from ADD and sometimes need an alternate source for getting started. This short guide was meant to be helpful in a shorter and hopefully more jam-packed with information way.

What To Do Now
           Well, for starters you could check out my VGA output design for the DE0 Nano and see pretty colors output to your LCD monitor. Beyond that the world is your oyster at this point, because you can now load FPGA code onto the board. I'd get started playing with the peripheral devices like accelerometer or adc already on-board.

           This article was shorter than normal, but I kept it that way so that I only included the most important and basic things necessary for getting started loading your first custom FPGA project into quartus and then onto your DE0 Nano development board. While a successful first step, it's far from impressive. Now, get to coding your own FPGA stuff in Verilog or VHDL!
           If you have any further questions, I implore you...don't be shy, take a look at the forums or ask a question there. I check them out regularly and love getting comments & questions.
