rompish Posted May 25, 2019 Share Posted May 25, 2019 Hi Everyone, I am a pretty seasoned C++ programmer dealing with low level things but I am brand new to FPGA topic. I have read some articles, watched a dozen or two videos and looked into some boards and I would like to start my first project but dont know where to start. I have a few questions: 1. Do i need to learn Verilog/VHDL if i plan on using openCL? 2. Do all boards "support" openCL? 3. Do i need to actually buy a board to start working on my project or i can just use a Software Emulator for one? If i can use an Emulator, where do i get it? 4. Could you suggest any openCL starting guides and tutorials that are easy to understand for someone who doesn't know Verilog/VHDL or FPGA in general? My project goal is to have a "smart" network interface that would pre-process data arriving on Ethernet and store it on host machine RAM directly, so that my C++ program running on CPU can use that data. Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
