FrontPanel and Python


Currently I’m using a C++ API with Intan Technologies’ RHD2000 Evaluation System, which at its base uses Opal Kelly XEM6010 module. My goal is simple - to control the FPGA from Python rather than C++.

I can use the DLL file with the .c/.h files and write a wrapper in Python (using ctypes for example).
Using that wrapper I will be able to, hopefully, load the FPGA’s bit file and take control.
I’m new to this, so I’m seeking a simpler solution.

Is it possible that Opal Kelly simply have python support?


Python is supported with a Python plugin. Please refer to the FrontPanel SDK documentation.
