We published an Instructable describing how to build a simple LED controller using Connectal Build.

One of the problems with CAD tools is that they are hard to install and often expensive. Fortunately, we are able to provide a public build service for open source projects written in Bluespec Systems Verilog using the Connectal framework.

This tutorial explains how to use the public Connectal Build service to build and simulate an application with hardware and software components written in BSV and C++ using the Connectal Framework.

We assume that you will store your design sources in a publicly available Git repository such as Github. The build service, which is based on buildbot, automatically builds your project when it detects changes. If you are simulating your design, the build service runs the applications and displays the logs automatically.

This tutorial builds the example and runs it in the bluesim simulator.
