Getting Started

CASPER Toolflow

Installation instructions for CASPER’s software stack (typically MATLAB, Simulink, Xilinx Vivado, and custom Python/Simulink libraries) are available on the Toolflow ReadtheDocs page.

You’ll need different tool versions depending on which hardware you’re planning to use. Please follow the suggested configurations in the documentation – it’s likely to make your life a lot less painful!


The CASPER collaboration maintains a set of tutorials designed to bring new users up to speed with our hardware, software, and design tools. Doing these tutorials is the best way to learn what CASPER is all about.

Our tutorials are typically updated once a year, for the CASPER collaboration workshop. They can be found on GitHub. Documentation for these tutorials is available on our Tutorial ReadTheDocs page.
