DE2 supports VHDL ams

Dear all, 

I have a DE2 board with FPGA is a cyclone II EPC35 using Quartus II v7.2 web edition 

I wonna know if this board support vhdl ams 

in my project i need to generate a sine wave signal so i need to know if i can  

use the expansion header like outputs for this generated signal in VHDL ams and 

if Cyclon 2 can generate this type of signal? 

Thanks

VHDL-AMS is a language modelling construct, it does not imply that hardware has to support it, just that you can use the language to model hardware.

You have to use an digital-to-analog converter to generate your sinusoid. However, without knowing what frequency you need, its a bit hard to provide you your options. 

 

The DE2 has audio and VGA components that might meet your needs, or you can buy a board that plugs into the headers. Check the Terasic web site for boards. 

 

Cheers,
