Ive been recently using an M74HC590 binary counter to capture some data from an opto-encoder and thought that since I'd modelled a basic binary counter into the FPGA, why don't I go the whole hog and model this real world component into it too and make a final blog post in this series.   Here's the front page and the pinout  in the datasheet for the M74HC590 that I'll be modelling:                   So we know what the inputs and output ...
So far the DE0-NANO P0082 development board and the associated user guides have given me a basic overview on how to develop with FPGA's and introduced me to a simple Verilog HDL file. To move forwards in FPGA development I would need to learn more about Verilog HDL and while Terasic have done a great job creating resources that teaches the basics of development I wouldn't expect them to provide me with a full Verilog HDL learning resource and so I looked elsewhere.   The first resource I ...
  If your looking to get into FPGA development and have been following my blogs, this is probably the post that you should pay most attention to as it's likely to make clear the design process.   So far I've followed the quick start guide,  downloaded the recommended software and installed the demo bitstreams onto the deo-nano development board. For clarification, a bitstream (or bit stream) is the name of your compiled project that gets transferred onto the FPGA device.   ...
This post covers my experiences working through the quick start guide and moving on from there.   Installing The Software  All of the required software can be downloaded from http://de0-nano.terasic.com/cd I was required to register at terasic.com to download their software. Downloading the terasic cd and other bits from there was as simple as downloading a regular file. There are links from there to the Altera website where I found the Quartus2 design suite. Of course I had to regist ...
  Recently I was selected to roadtest the terasIC DEO-NANO P0082 fpga development kit. My application was based around reviewing the P0082 for suitability as an entry level device to simplify the process of people wanting to explore fpga development for the first time.   As part of that roadtest application I offered to post regular blogs here in the fgpa group on element14 documenting my progress, this first post centered around the unboxing and first impressions.      ...
