the "usb module gearwork" under FPGA/HDL is the one.
17:38
codetronaut
@Bertl_oO
17:38
Bertl_oO
so you are good at coding HDL?
17:41
codetronaut
@Bertl_oO, currently i only know c/c++, python, shell but i will definitely learn HDL very fast.
17:41
codetronaut
just need little guidance
17:42
Bertl_oO
okay, then I guess the best start is to do some HDL examples
17:42
Bertl_oO
e.g. the challenge tasks listed for HDL
17:43
Bertl_oO
https://lab.apertus.org/T871
17:43
Bertl_oO
best do those with Xilinx Vivado (recent version) and Lattice Diamond to get a feel for the tools and the language
17:45
codetronaut
it's showing it's a part of GSoc19
17:46
Bertl_oO
yes, those challenge tasks were part of GSoC 2019
17:51
codetronaut
do i need different environment to start learning these as i am an 2nd year undergradute in pure software and these are new to me
17:52
Bertl_oO
not sure what your current environment is, but I would suggest to go with a Linux Distribution, preferably one which is well supported
17:52
codetronaut
i currently use debian buster with modded kernel 5.x
17:53
Bertl_oO
that should be fine
17:55
Bertl_oO
for Vivado, you want to get the Web License
17:55
Bertl_oO
for Diamond there is a free license as well, target hardware there is the MachXO2
17:55
Bertl_oO
(for Xilinx it is a Zynq 7020)

18:06
codetronaut

18:06
codetronaut

18:06
RexOrCine
Brilliant.
18:08
codetronaut
one thing...the versions that @Bertl_oO mentioned..so what do you think i should start with
18:08
RexOrCine
Good place to keep up with things is https://t.me/apertus
18:09
RexOrCine
No idea my friend, that's not my area at all, I don't code.
18:10
codetronaut

18:11
codetronaut
i would say this community is very welcoming :)
18:11
RexOrCine
Will you do GSoC next year?
18:12
codetronaut
i am not sure because i think gsoc requires experienced peoples.
18:13
codetronaut
i have very low experience but i am ready to learn anything anytime.
18:13
RexOrCine
Generally participants are students like yourself. But getting involved now is an excellent way to increase chances of being accepted.
18:16
codetronaut
