7-segment Display on Xilinx SPARTAN3E Starter board with LabVIEW FPGA

This Application show an LabVIEW VI that is working as a driver for a 7-segment display.

Requirements: Application Software: LabVIEW Professional Development System 8.5 Addon Software: LabVIEW FPGA Module 8.5

I developed this Application on my Xilinx SPARTAN3E Starter Board. I used a Kingbright SA52-11 7-segment display.



Running Counter on SPARTAN3E Starter Board by use of LabVIEW FPGA

Ok, I just created a next example for the Spartan3E starter board. It is a running binary counter that I send to the LED's.




Just try to rebuild it; if you are not able to rebuild I am willing to send my bitfile to you.


Happy LabVIEW FPGA coding!


Interaction PC <--> SPARTAN3E starter board in LabVIEW

Here you can see the screenshot of a project I created to show how easy it is to create interaction between a PC and a XILINX SPARTAN3E starter board:

LabVIEW FPGA Example for SPARTAN3E Starter board

I just created an example for the SPARTAN3E starter board in LabVIEW FPGA. I connected the SW0 and SW1 with LD0 and LD1. So you see if the corresponding switch is on or off.


Enjoy the example

You can download the created bitfile here.

Today I experimented with LabVIEW FPGA targetting the Spartan3E University board. I worked all the projects out that where included in the pdf file you can get on the academic website of NI (National Instruments - http://www.ni.com ).

I have made:

* the LED example

* the LCD example

* the Switch example where you start from a empty project

* including an Xilinx ISE generated FIR filter (IP core integrating into LabVIEW FPGA) with this example I had some problems because the value of the signal that I sended to the ADC was not the correct value that was shown on my PC screen.


Links that could be handy:

* Spartan3E user guide of the starter board:


* download Spartan3E LabVIEW FPGA driver


* WORD version of the LabVIEW FPGA tutorial for the Spartan3E starter university board (for easy copy/pasting of the VHDL code for the IP core that has to be implemented :-) )




Program your Spartan 3E FPGA board with LabVIEW

Hi FPGA World,

ready for a new sensation that will in the next years rule the world of ESL (electronic system-level ) FPGA programming?

I just received my Academic Newsletter from NI.com (National Instruments the makers of LabVIEW and LabVIEW FPGA).

They introduced recently a driver for using LabVIEW to program your FPGA Silicon on the Xilinx Spartan 3E starter board.

 In this document they describe a way to program the FPGA boards LED's, LCD and a custom made Xilinx Spartan 3E LabVIEW project. They even show you how to integrate VHDL code into a Spartan 3E LabVIEW Project.


For people who can't wait and want to start graphically programming their FPGA's you can download everything here: http://digital.ni.com/express.nsf/bycode/spartan3e

Be sure that the people who download this driver and tutorial are all academic people .... read the license...
