Bruno Levy has posted a tutorial showing you how to install FPGA development tools, synthesize a RISC-V core, compile and install programs and run them on a IceStick. This lets one experience FPGA design and RISC-V using one of the cheapest FPGA devices (around $40).
The tutorial goes through installing an open source toolchain and presenting a number of very good and practical examples.
A file lets you define what type of RISC-V processor you will create, and which device drivers in the associated system-on-chip.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
