The Quickstart guide (Have I ever complimented the BORA guys for this guide? I love quickstart guides!) points me towards a 7-segment driver project.
For this, I need the reference file.
(I’m going to rehash most the instructions, so just look it up there. There are slight differences in names in different versions, so if you use my setup, feel free to follow me.)
After openening “DigitalTrainer_Simple.xise”, a window pops up. Welcome ISE!
Switching to implementation mode looks a bit different than in the tutorial, but it’s easy to find:
Opening the io_connections.sch gives me a new window:
Well, I’ve got to place things into that schematic.
Same thing with GND.
Save, and then switch to the design implementation.
You get your first CLPD Report, which is pretty cool.
And then, when everything is green
you press the program.bat file.
So. Done with this. But I’m not finished:
a) But for now, I’m going to play with a few logic operators.
b) And I’m going to figure out how to multiplex something (because I’ve got an idea..)
c) And I’ll look up how that BCD works internally.
So much to do, so little time.
