Using just the switches and LEDs on the LogicStart.

  • Sometimes your design may just need a few switches and LEDs, and you also need to connect I/O connections to the rest of your project. You can plug the lower 'Wing C' connector into the Wing B socket, and have the 16 I/O pins of Wing C free for connecting to external projects.

Other tricks you can do are:

  • Spin the Wings A+B connector block around 180 degrees, and you should have access to everything but the LEDs and slide switches, plus 16 pins of I/O.
  • Plug the WIng B pins into the WingC socket and have VGA, Joystick, audio and 32 pins of I/O.

Of course you have to update your UCF files. Here is my updated UCF file for using the Switches and LEDs - Please note I number my LEDs wth LED0 on the right and LED7 on the left - the opposite way to the silk screening!
