It's difficult knowing when to appropriately use the phrase "game changer". However given the proliferation of FPGA System-On-Chip (SoC) devices, which contain the Microblaze or Nios II processors or the hardened embedded processors like the dual-core ARM Cortex A9, then for once the part phrase game changer may be appropriate.

This is especially the case when one uses these SoCs in conjunction with LINUX, the operating system of choice for embedded systems, when real-time operating systems are not considered (Embedded real-time LINUX will be considered in a separate article). 

In this first blog entry, of this category, we will begin by listing the more current LINUX projects and builds for embedded systems in general and FPGA SoCs in particular.

I have recently purchased some small TFT-LCD displays, which vary in size from about 2.0" to 4.3", to interface to FPGAs in general and the DE0-Nano in particular.
