In my previous two posts, I've talked about extending the ZPUino with custom peripherals and creating a terminal-like communication link over USB to an application running in an FPGA. Now it's time to combine those two concepts to create a terminal link to the ZPUino over the USB link of a XuLA board. <<more...>>
