    Hello all,

    I am designing my own VLSI application board, for beginning i want it to be simple, like it will have LEDS or 7 segment dsiplay on the board and it will be connected using 40 pin connector to ST-104 that has SPARTAN II in it.


    Can anyone guide me how to do that????


    Let suppose i have a VERILOG program in which i can display four names on 7 segment display,

    like if the logic is 00=Name 1
    01=Name 2
    10=Name 3
    11=Name 4


    so can i do that ???


    plz guide me !

    I didn't quite understand what you want to do there?

    Do you want to build a PCB board that will include a SPARTAN, its data bus, and 7seg displays in it?
    Or you will use a premade development SPARTAN kit and you want to attach a 7seg board on it?

    How many 7segs do you want to include? Number makes a difference.

    Can you give some more info on the development board you are working on?

    Actually i have seprate spartan Board,

    I want to design a PCB that connects with that spartan board Using 40-pin Connecter, an the board which i want to design will have 2 bit dip switch for 00 01 10 and 11 pattern, let say i will use only 1 7 segment code and it will display only initails of the name depends upon the logic level of dip switch,


    also i want to know that fpga has pin no 3 as input and i want to connect that input with 2 bit dip switch, is that possible that 2 bit switch can be connected with single input of fpga?

    You can't transmit 2 bits through 1 bit input simultaneously. Coding the input would be too much work for what it's worth. We can talk about it if it's absolutely a must, though.

    I still don't fully understand what you 're trying to do. If two switches select the sole 7seg display content, why do you need the 40 pin connector?

    i need 40 pin connector because the the spartan that i have the only 40 pin connector to connect with the any VLSI application board, that's the problem.

    Kindly Check the Image,

    I just want rough idea about the VLSI application board.
