Re: desktop with a modem and a wireless router

I'm completely computer illiterate so I'll try to put this as best as I can. My parents have a desktop with a modem and a wireless router. I just got a desktop, and I have no clue how to get internet for it. Do I need to get another modem, which means we have to pay another fee for optimum online, ...

Re: The advanced stuff

Will we learn to make a "testbench" (use the "handicapped" modelsim) in quartus ?

I do have an 8-bit & a 16-bit saleae logic analyzer , but as i read the testbench is much better as the stimulous can be simulated.

The advanced stuff

Chris Will you ansver questions during/after the course ? I mean i'we read a lot about us beginners making mistakes in "clocking" , and create "non" synchroneous logic , due to beginner mistakes (meaning using wrong clock or is it asynchroneous clock". I'd love to be able to...

Re: #2 Hardware Hello World [Post Homework Here]

I don't believe that MAXII devices are +5v tolerant. There are many generic solutions to drop the voltage to tolerant levels. Xilinx has an app-not describing their suggestions: http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/application_notes/xapp429.pdf I think i read thet the "2 large MAXII's&q...

Re: #2 Hardware Hello World [Post Homework Here]

This spot is for the homework questions: http://www.pyroelectro.com/edu/fpga/hello_world/homework/ , they're not meant to be tough, but to cement in a few ideas that were presented in the video. The part you're using is a little different than the EPM3032ATC44-10 we're using, so you will encounter ...

@Chris As i don't have a CD4511 , i have 2 choices. 1: I could program an Arduino to perform the logic. 2: I could find a bcd to 7-seg vhdl code on the net , and hope for some "help" in "gluing it in my EPM240 , when it's needed in the course. I have toyed a bit with opt2 , attached. ...

Re: Altera Quartus Version

EPM240 is a much larger part, you'll be able to do a lot of fun stuff with that once you've gotten the basics down! (for example...vga is always fun: http://www.pyroelectro.com/tutorials/fpga_vga_resistor_dac/ ) Just had a quick glance , the schematic says it's an EPM7x182 , i suppose it's a 7x128 ...
