fpgatools is a toolchain for programming flexible programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The only supported chip at this time is the xc6slx9, a cheap (circa $10 U.S.) but powerful 45nm-generation chip with about 2400 LUTs, block ram, and multiply-accumulate devices. The principles of fpgatools are to reach the maximum physical performance of the chip, to provide fast development cycles, to be an independent toolchain which only depends on other Free Software, and to be a lightweight C implementation without a GUI.

Release Notes: Second design verified: blinking_led is a clocked design where the clock increments a counter and the highest bit of the counter drives a LED.
Release Notes: With this release, the first design has been verified: hello_world is an unclocked AND gate design which was verified in a xc6slx9.
