Typical damage includes stressed solder joints, or contaminants in switches and buttons resulting in intermittent failures. Pinouts for the Pmod connectors are provided in the table below. The four pin connectors each have 8 data signals, two GND pins, and two Vdd pins. Eight LEDs are provided for circuit outputs. All data signals include short circuit protection resistors and ESD protection Diodes. For further information on using Adept, please see the Adept documentation available at the Digilent website. The three 8-bit data fields contain movement data as shown in the figure above.

The mouse assumes a relative coordinate system wherein moving the mouse to the right generates a positive number in the X field, and moving to the left generates a negative number. I also found the Xilinx IDE a bit irritating. The power supply routing and bypass capacitors result in a very clean, stable, and low-noise power supply.

The Nexys2 board includes several input devices, output devices, and data ports, allowing many designs to be implemented without the need for any other components. The following VGA system timing information is provided as an example of how a VGA monitor might be driven in by mode.

A host device dihilent also send data to the keyboard.

Segment LEDs can be individually illuminated, so any one of patterns can be displayed on a digit by illuminating certain LED segments and leaving the others dark. A VGA controller circuit decodes the output of a horizontal-sync counter driven by the pixel clock to generate HS signal timings.

Note that LEDs have different pin assignments due to pinout differences between the and the die. If peripheral boards require more current than the USB cable can supply, an external power supply should be used.

The larger the current fed into the cathode, the brighter the phosphor will glow. Both devices share a common bit data bus and bit address bus. These particle rays are initially accelerated towards the grid, but they soon fall under the influence of the much larger electrostatic force that results from the entire phosphor-coated display surface of the CRT being charged to 20kV or more.

A video controller circuit must be created in the FPGA to drive the sync and color signals with the correct timing in order to produce a working display system. Both the mouse and keyboard use a two-wire serial bus clock and data to communicate with a host device. Modern VGA displays can accommodate different resolutions, and a VGA controller circuit dictates the resolution by producing timing signals to control the raster patterns.

If a board fails test outside of the warranty period and cannot be easily repaired, Digilent can repair the board for a fee.

This signal connection scheme creates a multiplexed display, where the cathode signals are common to all digits but they can only illuminate nexyss2 segments of the digit whose corresponding anode signal is asserted.

Pushbutton and slide switch inputs use a series resistor for protection against short circuits a short circuit would occur if an FPGA pin assigned to a pushbutton or slide switch was inadvertently defined as an output. Nexys2 Pmod Connector Pin Assignments. The controller must index into video memory as the beams move across the display, and retrieve and apply video data to the display at precisely the time the electron beam is moving across a given pixel.

The clock synthesizers called DLLs, or delay locked loops provide clock management capabilities that include doubling or quadrupling the input frequency, dividing the input frequency by digikent integer multiple, and defining precise phase and delay relationships between various clock signals.

That configuration, also available on the Digilent webpage, can be used to check all of the devices and circuits on the Nexys2 board. When using USB power, care must be taken to ensure the Nexys2 board and any attached peripheral boards do not draw more than mA, or damage to the host may result. Further, if the jumper is set to VU, a voltage source connected to the Pmod can drive the main power bus of the Nexys2 board, so dlgilent should be taken to avoid connecting conflicting power supplies.

Stressed solder joints can be repaired by reheating and reflowing solder, and contaminants can be cleaned with off-the-shelf electronics cleaning products. All user-accessible signals on the Nexys2 board are ESD and short-circuit protected, ensuring a long operating life in any environment.

Each digit is illuminated just one-quarter of the time, but because the eye cannot perceive the darkening of a digit before it is illuminated again, the digit appears continuously illuminated. It can operate as a typical asynchronous SRAM with read and write cycle times of 70ns, digiilent as a synchronous memory with an 80MHz bus.

The table above summarizes the power supply parameters. In test circuits with roughly 20K gates routed, a 50MHz nexyx2 source, and all LEDs illuminated, about mA of current is drawn from the 1. The oddly named ‘djtgcfg’ program that comes with it detected my nezys2 connected Nexys2 board.

The Nexys2 board typically draws around mA from the USB cable, and care should be taken especially when using peripheral boards to ensure that no more than mA is drawn. The input power bus drives a 3.
