    hi
    i want to transmit and receive data using xbee and uart in altium and also using xctu. can anyone help me to write c code and schematic diagram for this research.

    Thank you

    Sure, what is your question?

    You will want to learn a bit of HDL (Verilog or VHDL) to program the FPGA.

    I don't know much about xbees, but it looks like they communicate over standard protocols... i2c, spi, uart, etc which are fairly easy on FPGA. Have a look at opencores.org for some free cores to get you started

    Hi
    i am using an altium nb3000. i want use fpga uart with xbee as a receiver i need a schematic diagram and how to program it with Vhdl.i need some suggestion .

    Thank you

    You need to decide what you want the fpga to do. Until then no one can sugest anything.

    i need to use altium nb3000 uart or use as a serial port which will connected xbee to receive data from other xbee. i need to program it write a schematic .

    thank you

    I didn´t really understand that. So you want a connection in the fashion uart->xbee->xbee->uart ? What does fpga have to do with that?

    I still don´t see why you need that fpga board when you should be able to connect the serial line from the pc straight to the xbee.

    I don't think FPGA works like you ask on a public forum "draw me a schematic".

    The software required is very complex and so is the technology.

    There are not so many people actually who can use FPGA at all.

    90% FPGA developement is not hobby/individual users/beginners.

    There are some websites with related topics, but not that many.

    If your altium nb3000 evalution board does not contain an USART example, then it's a poor evalution board.
