The FREE fpga development software is only under windows.
Xilinx and Altera (now Intel) FPGA development software, including the
"free" editions, have run under Linux for many years now. I routinely
use them on Fedora and CentOS.
I got version #9 of the Altera software to go with the old DE1 FPGA
card.I have that card so I can do TTL logic macro's and test before
I do a PCB layout using 74LS chips. More modern software seems to have
dropped that funtionality. I also like programing in AHDL because
I find VHDL and VERLOG too confusing to use.
AHDL also has a similar format to WINCUPL that I use for 22V10
programing. This way I can define logic modules using 22V10's
with the FPGA and test that as well as the 2901 emulation.
The Xilinx Vivado WebPack software supports the entire Artix-7 product
line, which covers a pretty wide range of device sizes. Xilinx ISE
WebPack supports Spartan 3, Spartan 6, and CPLD devices.
Any PCB designs I build will use through the hole parts, thus 22V10's
will be my biggest programable device.
