Re: include binary test data

You can store it in a ROM. Check out how we stored instructions for the CPU in this tutorial https://embeddedmicro.com/blogs/tutorials/basic-cpu

Re: Success with Mojo and creating hexadecimal counter components

Hey Dan,

We don't currently have a supported way to add your own components but it is a common feature request that will get added.

Re: Pseudorandom number within a range

If you can make your range fit a power of 2 just pick a subset of bits that it outputs. For example if 0-31 is acceptable then just use the first five bits of the output. To get it to an arbitrary range is a little harder to do efficiently. The simplest way is to truncate to the closest range (ie fo...

Re: frame buffer help

I'm assuming you're trying to make some RGB LEDs controllable over HDMI. How to do this really depends on how many LEDs you have. If you don't have THAT many you can probably get everything to fit nicely in the FPGA's internal RAM. Simply make a block ram with enough space to store the colors of eac...

Re: Can't download ISE Design Suite from Xilinx downloads page.

I just tried and it started downloading for me. Maybe they had a temporary issue with their site.

Re: MOJO communication problems

What OS are you using (looks like Windows, but is it 10?) are you running it in a VM?

You shouldn't have to flash the firmware but it won't hurt.
