Welcome to the Papilio Quickstart Guide and the exciting world of FPGA development. This guide covers the basics of installing the software and drivers needed to load the various projects that you create for or download to the Papilio Platform hardware. It also covers loading a basic, “Hello World” bitstream that blinks pins and outputs an ASCII table over the serial port. This guide does not cover the creation of VHDL code, it will get you up to speed with loading a bit file to the Papilio. For a more in depth guide on writing VHDL code for the Papilio download Hamster's free eBook.

Papilio DUO Quick Start Guide

The Papilio DUO is an exciting new board that couples an Arduino compatible chip with an FPGA circuit laboratory! When used with the Papilio DesignLab software you can draw circuits that allow your Arduino sketches to tap into the awesome power of an FPGA! All without learning a funky new programming language, just draw circuits using "chips" from our community libraries.

The Papilio DUO Quick Start page is the first place to go to learn how to use your new board and to come back to for reference.
