Some easy questions.... (if you know the answer!!)

Anything about FPGA boards, like how to assemble SMD components, find low-voltage regulators, FPGA configuration...

Some easy questions.... (if you know the answer!!)

What are the basic steps to compile the source shipped with the dragon?

Now i created a new project. Loaded the v file as source. Compiled.
and used the bit file in the project. (with the name of the source)

Is this correct?

Because when i upload the bit file. the fpga doesn't blink any led..
(this could be correct but would be better to change.....)

Could anybody share a garanteed working USB ==> LCD exe file?
Maybe its better to add it to the documentation.
Its then easyer to dig out if its the fpga or the c file.
I converted to delphi sow even overthere there are small changes...

Atleast one can test and exclude failures!

Its hard for us to become familiar with this stuff, to make it easyer the service would need to be taken just a small bit further...

wy not supply the bit files and exe of all the examples???

its the way one can test if its setup is correct and if his comiling is correct etc. etc. etc...

When you compile a project, you also need to have the pin assignment right or the FPGA software will assign random pins. So just compiling the v file isn't enough.

In the same directory i included the file(s) you gave us, if that doesn't solve the case, wy i cant find a scheme which fpga pin goes to which on the header??

Also it would be nice if you could tell me more about how and where i can define suchs pins... links are ok, even books...

You are selling some stuff to people which have allot of brains. but we cant read your mind, it would help more if you point us further...
