    Hi my name is Fadi and I need immediate help for this project for my schoool. My teacher is jumping so fast in this course ( Digital Hardware Design) and it is making me even more confused . I am so worried about this class and I don't know where to start actually. If anyone can help me I would be so thankful
    the project is:

    Using an FPGA operating at 50MHz, implement an asynchronous serial communications transmitter and
    receiver to communicate with a PC at 9600 baud or higher. Simulate, synthesize, evaluate, and optimize the
    design before downloading it to the FPGA hardware. Build the system in two stages: first implement the
    transmitter and then implement the receiver. Upon demonstrating a working transmitter design, a Xilinx
    Spartan III board will be checked out to groups of 2-students.​
    Part 1​
    . Evaluate and implement the code for the data-path and control system developed in class for the
    transmitter. Simulate, synthesize, optimize, and program the FPGA with your design and demonstrate its
    operation using a C-program, Hyper-terminal, Kermit terminal or other means.

    Part 2. Design a data-path and control system to implement the receiver. Simulate, synthesize,​
    optimize, and program the FPGA with this design and test as using a means as in part 1.

    You need to select a communications protocol to follow. That should start you on the implementation in the FPGA.

    Well. the thing is that the teacher is flying in this course and I don't know anything about using the xilinx software. I dont know what to do. But thank you anyway
