The link http://www.pas.rochester.edu/~skulski/Presentations/EE_class.pdf does not work. Not sure why.

But the web page works. 

Go to the web page and scroll down on the page to the paragraph starting with 

"Getting started in modern electronics design". --> The links there should work.

The following is OK. You can access presentations from that page.

I have no idea how to start, so I cannot answer this question.

Please do, but not on the list, but as written PDF document which will be a much better reference. Or perhaps a PowerPoint, which will be even better.

You can send it to the list, but I prefer a regular document over e-mails. It is just more useful.

> As far as compiler modifications go it is relatively straightforward.

How many years of education have you invested before being able to implement the straightforward modification?

I know that Andreas has earned a PhD in this field before he wrote his little compiler. So I am asking seriously.

I should pay back, should I not? I promise to teach you FPGA PCB board design. It will pay handsomely, so please start learning. I already wrote the tutorial. Please download and let me know if you are ready to develop the next Oberon FPGA board, which will definitely help you and others.

The material was written in 2002, but it is still current. The physics did not change.


The page http://www.pas.rochester.edu/~skulski provides a few other goodies as well. Please visit and click on my photo to activate a short video. Enjoy!
