    Default Displaying Binary/Hex Output on VGA

    Hi everyone,

    I'm currently trying to figure out how to display the output of a 10 bit multiplier as a number on a VGA. The multiplier is built up at component level using the block diagram method on Quartus. I think I need to use VHDL to be able to convert the binary output and display it on the VGA, but this is something I have never done before. I currently have a binary and/or hexadecimal output available. Any advice?

    Thanks

    Have you tried or been able to display anything on the display via VGA? Based on your post I suspect not. You need to play around with something much simpler - what you're proposing is pretty involved. Yes, VHDL is a suitable language to use - I recommend not attempting to solve this using built in Quartus functional blocks. Try controlling the screen in a very simple manner first, then develop from there.

    Cheers,
    Alex

    Thanks Alex, I'll give that a try first as I haven't tackled the simple stuff first!
