Spartan 3an starter kit ADC question for a newbie

Hello, i'm newbie to fpga programming. For my graduate i'm interested to adc acquisition of voltage and current for realize a real time power meter.

What are the tools necessary for this? I have read the Ken Chapman documents to A/D control whith spartan 3e starter kit board. The picoblaze implementation is necessary?

I'm able to use matlab and simulink, I have installed to my pc the ISE Web Pack. 

Is possible programming of spartan 3an starter kit board only whith the Xilinx System Generator and ISE tool?

 

Best Regards

Hi, yes, with ISE WebPack you can create "program" for your spartan 3AN easly. I am making my graduate on this board, guitar multiefect in pure vhdl, without ken chapman's picoblaze , ADC -> FIR -> FX's -> DAC and it is working fine :) You can use picoblaze programs to find how ADC is working, for example observing output's\inputs on logic analyzer. Any question's, just ask :)

You are new at this, so simplify you life by forgetting that Matlab and Simulink exist. Don't think about PicoBlaze. All you need are a text editor and the ISE implementation tools.

----------------------------Yes, I do this for a living.
