Board Simulation

SHDL tool includes graphical simulation of some FPGA board peripheral components: buttons, LED, rotary encoder and various displays. Board support can be enabled on the Setup window and the board is then accessed by clicking on a Board button.

Connection of a circuit model with the board is through predefined port signal names:

The code board1 uses described peripheral units. By click on Start, a simulation with interactive board graphics is performed.
