FPGAs are unquestionably among the most versatile but complex components in modern-day electronics. An FPGA contains a maze of gates and other circuit elements that can be used to put together your own digital circuit on a chip. In this series of articles we use an FPGA development board designed in the Elektor Labs to show how easy it is for any electronics enthusiast, whether professional or amateur, to work with these programmable logic devices.
