Hi there~I'm going to control one 7 segment (HEX0) and 8 LEDs on DE2 board using Quartus2. But, I don't know how to make delay for each LED First of all, of the 7 segment pins, I use 6 of them to make# 1 and# 2. I think that it's pretty straightforward because when I press first push button, it will show# 1, and second push button is pressed,# 2 will show up. But 8 LEDs need to be delayed. As I said, I going to use two push button as input signals and each button stands for kind of selection. Ok! Here is a simple version. what I'm going to do is when I push first push button, the 7 segment will show# 1, and 8 LEDs start to turn on from the first LED to 8th LES at each second. Otherwise, when I press 2nd push button, 7 segment will show# 2 and LEDs need to turn on from 2nd led, 3rd led, 5th led, 6th led and 8 led. ===================================================== USE IEEE.STD_LOGIC_1164.all; ENTITY AutomatedCarWash Is Port( KEY0, KEY1 :IN STD_LOGIC; LEDG0, LEDG1, LEDG2, LEDG3, LEDG4, LEDG5, LEDG6, LEDG7, HEX00, HEX01, HEX02, HEX03, HEX04, HEX06 :OUT STD_LOGIC); END AutomatedCarWash; ARCHITECTURE LEDs of AutomatedCarWash Is signal AND1, AND2, OR1: STD_LOGIC; BEGIN AND1 <= (KEY0 and (NOT KEY1)) after 1 NS; AND2 <= (KEY1 and (NOT KEY0)) after 1 NS; OR1 <= AND1 or AND2 after 1 NS; LEDG0 <= OR1 after 1 NS; LEDG1 <= OR1 after 1 NS; LEDG2 <= OR1 after 2 NS; LEDG3 <= OR1 after 3 NS; LEDG4 <= OR1 after 4 NS; LEDG5 <= OR1 after 5 NS; LEDG6 <= OR1 after 6 NS; LEDG7 <= OR1 after 7 NS; END LEDs; ARCHITECTURE SevenSegment of AutomatedCarWash Is Signal AND3, AND4, AND5: STD_LOGIC; BEGIN AND3 <= NOT KEY0 and NOT KEY1 after 1 NS; AND4 <= NOT KEY0 and KEY1 after 1 NS; AND5 <= KEY0 and NOT KEY1 after 1 NS; HEX00 <= AND5 after 1 NS; HEX01 <= NOT AND3 after 1 NS; HEX02 <= AND4 after 1 NS; HEX03 <= AND5 after 1 NS; HEX04 <= AND5 after 1 NS; HEX06 <= AND5 after 1 NS; END SevenSegment;
In my opinion the after statement is just for simulation purposes. So everything you put into your vhdl-code in this example will take place simultanious.Try a different way to delay your code like usleep or built some kind of counter into the code, but this won't work like you try it right now. But sorry I haven't got a solution right away. Here is a link to an example, where I showed how to delay an led with a modulo-counter, but it is a block design just look into the attachment. http://www.alteraforum.com/forum/showpost.php?p=85568&postcount=6 Good luck!
