# FPGA-Beat-Machine
> Team Member 1 (Pascal Fitzner)
## Overview
My goal is to make a beat machine, by using the osciallator of the boolean board. In addition, the output should be perceptible through an externally added speaker at the audio port.
## Getting started
To make it easy for you to get started with GitLab, here's a list of recommended next steps.
## Background
I want to use the continuous alternating waveform of the 100MHz 50PPM MEMS/CMOS oscillator inside the Boolean board to generate sound. At same time the connected multi region clock should interrupt the signal in conjunction with slide switches to generate a repeating audio rhythm. The output will be delegated to the PWM/PDM audio output.
Already a pro? Just edit this and make it your own. Want to make it easy? [Use the template at the bottom](#editing-this-readme)!
## Add your files
## Implementation Strategy
- First goal is to generate an audible signal at the speaker, by conveying the output from the oscillator to the audio output.
- Then I divide a four-four clock time into 16 slide switches in order to interrupt the signal according to their states. This means I can play 16 individual beats in one clock cycle.
- This is followed by audio-visual feedback through glowing LEDs at the position of the current beat in our four-four-time interval above the slide switches.
- (Optional: Adjusting the waveform of the oscillator with the value of the potentiometer.)
- [ ] [Create]( or [upload]( files
- [ ] [Add files using the command line]( or push an existing Git repository with the following command:
cd existing_repo
git remote add origin
git branch -M main
git push -uf origin main
## Integrate with your tools
## Tasks
*This section is the most important because it gives us a sense of the scope of your project and forces you to think about the deliverables to which you'll hold yourself.*
- [ ] [Set up project integrations](
Break down your project into a sequence of small tasks that you can feasibly accomplish to incrementally build towards a complete working project.
## Collaborate with your team
Include at least three stretch goals. A *stretch goal* is an extension that you think would be really awesome, but would probably be outside the scope of the final project.
- [ ] [Invite team members and collaborators](
- [ ] [Create a new merge request](
- [ ] [Automatically close issues from merge requests](
- [ ] [Enable merge request approvals](
- [ ] [Automatically merge when pipeline succeeds](
What tasks do you think will be easy? What tasks do you think will be hard? Tedious? Trivial? Give us a sense of your current outlook on these project tasks.
## Test and Deploy
Annotate each of the tasks (including stretch goals) with an estimate for how long you believe the task will take you. If you're in a group, also annotate each task with the names of anyone responsible for the task.
Use the built-in continuous integration in GitLab.
If you've already accomplished some of the tasks, make a note of it! If you're incorporating a final project for another class into this final project, you'll be held to a higher standard of quality and quantity, so make a note of that too.
- [ ] [Get started with GitLab CI/CD](
- [ ] [Analyze your code for known vulnerabilities with Static Application Security Testing(SAST)](
- [ ] [Deploy to Kubernetes, Amazon EC2, or Amazon ECS using Auto Deploy](
- [ ] [Use pull-based deployments for improved Kubernetes management](
- [ ] [Set up protected environments](
This task list isn't binding - you can change your mind, modify tasks, etc - but it's a good starting point to organize incremental development.
# Editing this README
When you're ready to make this README your own, just edit this file and use the handy template below (or feel free to structure it however you want - this is just a starting point!). Thank you to []( for this template.
## Suggestions for a good README
Every project is different, so consider which of these sections apply to yours. The sections used in the template are suggestions for most open source projects. Also keep in mind that while a README can be too long and detailed, too long is better than too short. If you think your README is too long, consider utilizing another form of documentation rather than cutting out information.
## Name
Choose a self-explaining name for your project.
## Description
Let people know what your project can do specifically. Provide context and add a link to any reference visitors might be unfamiliar with. A list of Features or a Background subsection can also be added here. If there are alternatives to your project, this is a good place to list differentiating factors.
## Badges
On some READMEs, you may see small images that convey metadata, such as whether or not all the tests are passing for the project. You can use Shields to add some to your README. Many services also have instructions for adding a badge.
## Visuals
Depending on what you are making, it can be a good idea to include screenshots or even a video (you'll frequently see GIFs rather than actual videos). Tools like ttygif can help, but check out Asciinema for a more sophisticated method.
## Installation
Within a particular ecosystem, there may be a common way of installing things, such as using Yarn, NuGet, or Homebrew. However, consider the possibility that whoever is reading your README is a novice and would like more guidance. Listing specific steps helps remove ambiguity and gets people to using your project as quickly as possible. If it only runs in a specific context like a particular programming language version or operating system or has dependencies that have to be installed manually, also add a Requirements subsection.
## Usage
Use examples liberally, and show the expected output if you can. It's helpful to have inline the smallest example of usage that you can demonstrate, while providing links to more sophisticated examples if they are too long to reasonably include in the README.
## Support
Tell people where they can go to for help. It can be any combination of an issue tracker, a chat room, an email address, etc.
## Roadmap
If you have ideas for releases in the future, it is a good idea to list them in the README.
## Contributing
State if you are open to contributions and what your requirements are for accepting them.
For people who want to make changes to your project, it's helpful to have some documentation on how to get started. Perhaps there is a script that they should run or some environment variables that they need to set. Make these steps explicit. These instructions could also be useful to your future self.
You can also document commands to lint the code or run tests. These steps help to ensure high code quality and reduce the likelihood that the changes inadvertently break something. Having instructions for running tests is especially helpful if it requires external setup, such as starting a Selenium server for testing in a browser.
## Authors and acknowledgment
Show your appreciation to those who have contributed to the project.
## License
For open source projects, say how it is licensed.
## Project status
If you have run out of energy or time for your project, put a note at the top of the README saying that development has slowed down or stopped completely. Someone may choose to fork your project or volunteer to step in as a maintainer or owner, allowing your project to keep going. You can also make an explicit request for maintainers.
