  Alchitry Io Switches with Au
Posted by: garthberry - 02-22-2019, 03:22 PM - Forum: Tips and Tricks - No Replies

After trying to get the switches (DIP and pushbutton) Alchitry Io working for a little too long it finally occurred to me that pulldowns need to be enabled for each of the pins attached to a switch. If pulldowns are not enabled the pin will typically float high. The pulldown resistor can be enabled on a pin by pin basis in the  constraints file as follows:

Code:
set_property PACKAGE_PIN C4 [get_ports {dip_sw[0]}]
set_property IOSTANDARD LVCMOS33 [get_ports {dip_sw[0]}]
set_property PULLDOWN TRUE [get_ports {dip_sw[0]}]


  Clocking with Lattice Parts
Posted by: samuelcomeau - 02-22-2019, 06:25 AM - Forum: General Questions - Replies (2)

Hey,
So with the Mojo, the way to get new clocks was to use coregen via the awesome installed button. Since Cu is a Lattice part there is obviously not a coregen option. Therefore, how do I get my higher or lower clock signal?


  Headers. (First!)
Posted by: samuelcomeau - 02-22-2019, 01:26 AM - Forum: General Questions - Replies (7)

Hey, 
So I've had the Alchitry Cu for a few days. Great looking board, I'm excited to get the software up and running. Just one question. How do I connect anything to it? I don't see my comfortable headers and I feel completely paralyzed. 
Objectively, I know there is a solution to this problem and that it wouldn't require too much work on my part, but is there a simple solution to go from the super whamadine headers to my comfortable breadboard friendly ones? 
(P.S. I don't hate the new headers, my Mojo has so many bent pins it's starting to look like a porcupine.)

Welcome to the new forum! After the old forum was basically made useless by an overflow of spam, this new one will hopefully fare better.
