Hi, 

I've a problem...I designed a simple VHDL system for solving an equation (all parameters are fixed), this system has 3 inputs (a Start, Reset and Clock signals) and an output (a 32bit equation result data output); my idea is to control this system from my pc using a labview GUI, sending a Start command and waiting for 32bit result data. 

On web many people use Nios II for design such a system...but I'd like to avoid to use it...because I've not a lot of time to dedicate to it...Is there another way to do that??? 

 

Is there anybody who could help me??? 

 

Thanks

Use the simple socket server application. In my humble opinion you will spend more time trying to figure out a VHDL-only solution than learning and adapting NIOS for your purpose.
