Reference Manual
Schematic

Arty is a ready-to-use development platform designed around the Artix-7™ Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) from Xilinx. It was designed specifically for use as a MicroBlaze Soft Processing System. When used in this context, Arty becomes the most flexible processing platform you could hope to add to your collection, capable of adapting to whatever your project requires. Unlike other Single Board Computers, Arty isn't bound to a single set of processing peripherals: One moment it's a communication powerhouse chock-full of UARTs, SPIs, IICs, and an Ethernet MAC, and the next it's a meticulous timekeeper with a dozen 32-bit timers.

  • Digilent Forum user jmw created a Microblaze port of the Adafruit GFX and Adafruit SSD1306 libraries for the Arty, which likely can be made compatible with the Pmod OLED. The original Forum thread is available here.
