FPGA Tooling on Ubuntu 20.04

In this post, I test common FPGA tools for compatibility with Ubuntu 20.04 (AKA Focal Fossa), and my regular desktop OS: Pop!_OS 20.04. These tests are in no way exhaustive: I have tried using the applications as I usually do to exercise the main functionality. For me, the biggest gain in moving to 20.04 has been the responsiveness of the desktop. Tested: IceStorm Tools, nextpnr, nMigen, Verilator, Vivado, Yosys In Progress: Quartus Last updated 2020-06-05 follow WillFlux for future updates. Read more
