Start-Stop Counter at App Inventor2

Hi,

At my this post, i will continue to use App inventor 2. This is the first time of using  app inventor2 since it is updated at 28 Feb.

My aim is making a downcounter that counts from a number that is entered from the screen. Then it starts downcounting when we press start button. If i press to stop, it freezes at that current number. After that we press to start again, it continues to count from the last number until it arrives to zero or stopping again.

Sequence Detector in Vhdl

Hi,
As the improved version of my last post, Sequential Detector has states. 
Difference of this one is it has output called  as "q". The states goes 
through zero to three. When the input is "1" and clock comes three times
it reaches the state 'three' then it makes the output as "1". If the input
still "1" when new clocks arise, output keeps as same. After that if we 
change the input "d" from "1" to "0" state changes to "zero" and output 
become "0". You can see the pattern at below.

        rst        : in    std_logic;
        q           : out std_logic:='0');
end entity;

Implementation of State Machine in Vhdl

Hi everyone,

Today i will show you how to create a state machine and implementation of that. 
Most important thing in designing at state machine is that lines.
type state_type is (zero, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine);
signal state : state_type;

My state are from zero to nine.
After the implementing this code you can get the state diagram.

library ieee;
use ieee.std_logic_1164.all;

entity BCD_counter is
generic(N : integer := 4);
port
(
clk         : in    std_logic;
reset        : in    std_logic;
y     : inout std_logic_vector((N-1) downto 0);
segment1: out std_logic_vector (6 downto 0)    );

end entity;

architecture bevahioral of BCD_counter is

type state_type is (zero, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine);
signal state : state_type;
signal temp : std_logic_vector ((N-1) downto 0);

begin

process (clk, reset)
begin

if reset = '1' then
state <= zero ;
temp <= "0000";

elsif (rising_edge(clk)) then

case state is

when zero =>
temp <= "0000";
state <= one;

when one =>
temp <= "0001";
state <= two;

when two =>
temp <= "0010";
state <= three;

when three =>
temp <= "0011";
state <=four ;

when four =>
temp <= "0100";
state <=five ;

when five =>
temp <= "0101";
state <=six ;

when six =>
temp <= "0110";
state <=seven ;

when seven =>
temp <= "0111";
state <=eight ;

when eight =>
temp <= "1000";
state <=nine ;

when others =>
temp <="1001";
state <=zero ;

end case;

end if;
end process;

y <= temp;

process(y)
begin
case y is
when "0000" => segment1 <= "1000000";
when "0001" => segment1 <= "1001111";
when "0010" => segment1 <= "0100100";
when "0011" => segment1 <= "0110000";
when "0100" => segment1 <= "0011001";
when "0101" => segment1 <= "0100100";
when "0110" => segment1 <= "0000010";
when "0111" => segment1 <= "0111000";
when "1000" => segment1 <= "0000000";
when "1001" => segment1 <= "0011000";
when "1010" => segment1 <= "0100000";
when "1011" => segment1 <= "0000011";
when "1100" => segment1 <= "1000110";
when "1101" => segment1 <= "0100001";
when "1110" => segment1 <= "0000110";
when others => segment1 <= "0001110";
end case;

end process;

end bevahioral;

BCD Upcounter with Seven Segment display

Hi everyone,
today we will learn how to use seven segment display and usage of case-when. 
At my one of the earlier post i did counter but now i improved the program. 
Now it counts from "0000" to "1001" then it goes back.

I have a reset input as you see and at the end of the program there are two when-case 
situation. These are fır the seven segment displays at Cyclone V SoC 5CSEMA5F31 board.
library ieee;
use ieee.std_logic_1164.all;
use IEEE.STD_LOGIC_ARITH.ALL;
use ieee.std_logic_unsigned.all;

entity BCD_counter is
generic (N : integer:= 3 );
port( clk : in std_logic;
rst : in std_logic;
y   : out std_logic_vector(3 downto 0) );
end entity;

architecture behavioral of BCD_counter is

signal ara : std_logic_vector(3 downto 0);

begin

process(clk,rst)

begin
if rst = '1' then
ara <= "0000";
--    elsif ara = "1010" then
--    ara <= "0000";
elsif rising_edge(clk) then
ara <= ara + "0001" ;
else
ara <= ara;
end if;
end process;
y <= ara;
process(y)
begin
case y(3 downto 0) is
when "0000" => segment1 <= "1000000";
when "0001" => segment1 <= "1001111";
when "0010" => segment1 <= "0100100";
when "0011" => segment1 <= "0110000";
when "0100" => segment1 <= "0011001";
when "0101" => segment1 <= "0100100";
when "0110" => segment1 <= "0000010";
when "0111" => segment1 <= "0111000";
when "1000" => segment1 <= "0000000";
when "1001" => segment1 <= "0011000";
when "1010" => segment1 <= "0100000";
when "1011" => segment1 <= "0000011";
when "1100" => segment1 <= "1000110";
when "1101" => segment1 <= "0100001";
when "1110" => segment1 <= "0000110";
when others => segment1 <= "0001110";
end case;

case y(7 downto 4) is
when "0000" => segment2 <= "1000000";
when "0001" => segment2 <= "1001111";
when "0010" => segment2 <= "0100100";
when "0011" => segment2 <= "0110000";
when "0100" => segment2 <= "0011001";
when "0101" => segment2 <= "0100100";
when "0110" => segment2 <= "0000010";
when "0111" => segment2 <= "0111000";
when "1000" => segment2 <= "0000000";
when "1001" => segment2 <= "0011000";
when "1010" => segment2 <= "0100000";
when "1011" => segment2 <= "0000011";
when "1100" => segment2 <= "1000110";
when "1101" => segment2 <= "0100001";
when "1110" => segment2 <= "0000110";
when others => segment2 <= "0001110";
end case;
