README

A library for JTAG-programming and subsequently interacting with an FPGA over USB using a
microcontroller (primarily the Cypress FX2LP). It allows you to:

   * Load and save Cypress FX2LP firmware
   * Communicate with the FPGA using HiSpeed USB (~25Mbyte/s)
   * Reprogram the FPGA using JTAG over USB
   * Bootstrap an FPGA design standalone using minimal components

See http://bit.ly/fpgalnk-api for the API docs.

To build, first you need to install the MakeStuff Build Environment (http://bit.ly/makestuff) for
your platform, then do:

chris@wotan$ cd makestuff/libs
chris@wotan$ ../common/msget.sh libfpgalink   # or msgit.sh if you want a local git repo
chris@wotan$ cd libfpgalink
chris@wotan$ make deps
