Chris_C Posted December 10, 2013 Report Share Posted December 10, 2013 Well after more than two weeks my "priority" mail USPO package arrived - I'll not be using USPO ever again given the chance, even oops (ups) can do it in less than half the time... So having worked through Hamsters excellent intro to FPGA's I added a counter to some code I'd used with the simulator and having already compiled the papilio tool sent the design to the fpga... but instead of the LED inverting its state every few seconds it remained on! - "oh nose my logics is borked" I thought, then I did my math again and realised that I was, not one, not two, but three decimal orders of magnitude out with my counter, adding eight or nine bits to my counter and bingo led flashes on or off every few seconds or so. Colour me happy! I can't wait for Hamsters ebook on writing soft cores (hint hint) soon I hope to tackle making a VGA signal, which I think is going to be a LOT easier than bit banging a PAL signal with a micro controller ! Just one request to the gadget factory a few pins on my VGA wing were bent, shipping them in some conductive foam would prevent this... Anyone care to venture some project ideas (slightly easier than VGA) I can do to lead me up to tackling the VGA wing? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
