    HackerBoxes 0012: Digital Logic

    I want to try building a 555 timer circuit on this FPGA, I found a few others who have built working NES & games on FPGAs, im wondering what the limits are on this project. I just wish there was some tutorial for building a digital circuit on the FPGA that we could test out even if we are only cut and pasting code.

    THANK YOU! I Needed to see this tutorial :)

    Awesome! :D check your power source, this orange pi is rather finicky when it comes to power requirements, ive read a bunch of comments of how this problem disappears when you plug in the usb to a proper fast charging usb. try running this off a pc usb first then work your way down to other brand or no name brand usb phone chargers.

Run win 32 Disk Imager, select the drive your sd card is located at (D:\, E:\ or whatever it is), then select the folder icon, right above the "Open" and "Cancel" buttons you will see a "Disk images (*.img *.IMG)" as default, since we have no .img files and only a .RAW file, you will click on this box and select *,* as your option, then you will see the "Armbian_5.14_Orangepilite_Debian_jessie_3.4.112_desktop.raw" file in the folder that you unziped your file to from step 1.). Select this file, then click on the "Write" Button this will take a while. once this is done take your SD card and insert into the sd slot of the orange pi lite. 7.) your orange pi lite will boot up for a minute and then shut down and give you a blank screen. 8.) disconnect the power source and replug it in to restart your orange pi lite, it should now boot normally and give you a login prompt. Type root, then type 1234 as your password, change the password and name as directed to by the prompt, you will be asked to type the password in twice. 9.) once your pasword and name has been set ( you do not need to enter any additional info after this leave everything blank type y for yes to continue (you may have to type "y" twice), now you can type startx to start the windows environment. THATS IT! PRETTY SIMPLE HUH? :O A few NO NOs, if our orange pi lite refuses to turn on or boot its probably because you used a 64 gig sd card, use a smaller card like a 16 gig, or try a 32 gig, this should fix the issue. Also make sure you plug in your keyboard and mouse and hdmi and power to a 2.1 amp or fast charging phone charger usb plug or pc with fast charging ability. hope this helps! :D

    you may have an issue with the sd card, either its too big, try using a 32 gig or 16 gig card, if you still have issues, check out the quick tutorial on how to install armbian on orange pi lite in THIS comment section, i hope it helps! :D
