Designing Hardware with Python - A story of the HDMI2USB.tv project...

Description

Timothy Ansell

https://2016.pycon-au.org/schedule/25/view_talk

Python is generally considered a high level language a long way from hardware, this very fact actually makes it an awesome tool for helping out with the design and creation of hardware!

This talk will hopefully cover;

  • Python hardware description languages (HDLs) for creating "gateware" for FPGA chips or even real IC design.
  • Python scripting for hardware schematic layout and design rule checking.
  • Python tools for deploying, programming and debugging embedded systems.
  • Some cool projects like the HDMI2USB.tv (open source hardware for video capture) which use many of the above parts.

This talk will focus on open source tools.
