Compatibility with the USB host may vary between different keyboards. Use the browse function to associate the desired. A scanning display controller circuit can be used to show a four-digit number on this display. Likewise, the output of a vertical-sync counter that increments with each HS pulse can be used to generate VS signal timings, and this counter can be used to locate any given row. Slide switches generate constant high or low inputs depending on their position. Digilent’s Adept software offers a simplified programming interface and many additional features as described below. The controller must produce synchronizing pulses at 3.

The input clock can drive any or all of the four clock management tiles in the Spartan Segment Digileny 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. This sub-plane can be connected to 2. The three 8-bit data fields contain movement data as shown in the figure above. Adept automatically recognizes the Nexys3 board and presents a graphical interface with tabs for each of these applications.

The phosphor surface glows brightly at the impact point, and it continues to glow for several hundred microseconds after the beam is removed.

Digilent Nexys3 Board

If a key can be shifted to produce a new character like a capital letterthen a shift character is sent in addition to the scan code, and the host must determine which ASCII character to use. Both use bit words that include a start, stop, and odd parity bit, but the data packets are organized differently, and the keyboard interface allows bi-directional data transfers so the host device can illuminate state LEDs on the keyboard.


A USB mouse can be connected to J4 for a simple visual demonstration. The switches and buttons graphics show the current states of those devices on the Nexys3 board.

The pushbuttons and slide switches are connected to the FPGA via series resistors to prevent damage from inadvertent short circuits a short circuit could occur if an FPGA pin assigned to a pushbutton or slide switch was inadvertently defined as an output. Using the Test tab automatically loads a demo configuration into the FPGA, so no separate bit files or project need to be used.

JTAG Mode can be accessed at any time without changing jumpers. The keyboard uses open-collector drivers so the keyboard, or an attached host device, can drive the two-wire bus if the host device will not send data to the keyboard, then the host can use input-only ports.

If Mode mexys J8 is set to BPI mode and power is applied, the user demo configuration will be loaded.

Programming files stored in the PCM devices will remain until they are overwritten, regardless of power-cycle events. If the mouse moves continuously, the bit transmissions are repeated every 50ms or so. In order for each of the four digits to appear bright and continuously illuminated, all four digits should be driven once every 1 to 16ms, for a refresh frequency of 1KHz to 60Hz.

Contact Digilent for more details. 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.

If programming with neyxs. The following VGA system timing information is provided as an example of how a VGA monitor might be driven in by mode.

An external battery pack should also be limited to 5.


Care must be taken to ensure the VUEXP delivered to any attached expansion board is the correct voltage — since VU is driven directly from an attached supply, this means a supply of the proper voltage must be used e. If any device on the Nexys3 board fails test or is not responding properly, it is digilenh that damage occurred during transport or during use.

If a board fails test outside of the warranty period and cannot be easily repaired, Digilent can repair the board or offer a discounted replacement. The USB port can deliver enough power for the vast majority of designs. Each time the mouse is moved, three bit digilemt are sent from the mouse to the host device.

The pixel clock defines the time available to display one pixel of information. The Nexys3 power supplies are enabled or turned on by a logic-level Power switch SW8.

Once the indicator near the Start Peripherals Test button turns green, all peripheral tests nexyss be run.

Mating connectors and cables of various lengths are also available from Digilent and from distributors. The console window displays current status, and the status bar shows real-time progress when downloading a configuration file.

Bus timings are shown in the figure. The color signals use resistor-divider circuits that work in conjunction with the ohm termination resistance of the VGA display to create eight nexyw levels on the red and green VGA signals, and four on blue the human eye is less sensitive to blue levels.
