    Problem with LogicStart SPI ADC

    Thanks a lot Mike, you saved my day. I should have checked out how the ADC is connected in the Logic Start Mega Wing, but I really thought the reference voltage was 3.3V because of what you say in your book about connecting the ADC to 5V. But anyway the upadate you did to my display4digit module really improve how the 7segment displays show the value the ADC reads, now I am able to read a stable value (without burning my eyes haha).

    Hi Mike, Yeah, I just did it, thank you! Eduardo

    Problem with LogicStart SPI ADC

    If I use the following line: "LEDs <= datain_shiftreg(7 downto 0) ;" am i supposed to be printing the first 8 bits of the adc?

    Problem with LogicStart SPI ADC

    I'm still not able to understand how this code is supposed to work, i would really appreciate some help around here. By the way, when i´m supposed to be reading an adc value, the leds don´t remain stable, they keep changing every time. I also tried the "ZPUino Test Code for the LogicStart MegaWing" in order to see if the ADC128S102 is working as it should, but the bit file didn´t work, i couldn´t see anything clear in my monitor, does anyone knows if that bit file is working?
  5. Hi, i have been working with the p1 500k board since last month with the help of Hamster's tutorial and some posts of the forum, where i have learned a lot that's why I thank all who contribute to the papilio project and hope I can also contribute myself in the future. But now I'm having trouble making the ADC of the logic starter megawing work, I tried directly with the code that Hamster gives in his tutorial and when I was trying to read 3.3V in the channel 0 of the ADC, what the LEDs show is "0b10101100" what confuses me because I thought i should see "0b11111111" as 3.3V is the maximum value that the 12 bit ADC can read. So since i couldn't really understand if the code of the tutorial uses the 8 most significant bits of the 12 bit ADC output value to light up the LEDs, i thought that i should use the recommended code ( -- Normally you would grab "datain_shiftreg(10 downto 0) & adc_dout" for 12 bits) to output the 12 bits and then display that value on the Seven seg display in hex. Also I did it and now the displays show "0B72" with 3.3 V and "0037" with 0.0V, what just looks like the same problem before. So my question is, how do I send the correct 12/8 bits output value of the ADC to the displays/Leds in the logic starter mega wing, what am i missing? Is it a problem with the hardware? Because i was trying it with an external 3.3V voltage source and a potentiometer, but then i used the 3.3V and 2.5V voltage lines of the logic starter megawing and just ended with the same results. I also saw in the datasheet of the ADC128S102 that i could use a 22ohm resistor and a 1nF capacitor, but I don't really think that will solve the problem. The code that I'm using with the Leds is the following: library IEEE;use IEEE.STD_LOGIC_1164.ALL;-- Uncomment the following library declaration if using-- arithmetic functions with Signed or Unsigned valuesuse IEEE.NUMERIC_STD.ALL;-- Uncomment the following library declaration if instantiating-- any Xilinx primitives in this code.--library UNISIM;--use UNISIM.VComponents.all;entity adc is port ( clk : IN std_logic;

Sorry if this question has been asked before but I just couldn't find anything in the forum. Thanks in advance, Eduardo
