To flash an LED at a specific frequency we need to divide the input clock frequency. In VHDL this can be done using counters. The Papilio One FPGA board comes with a 32MHz oscillator. 32Mhz means 32 million pulses per second, if you wanted to divide this down to 1Hz you could just set an…
It took three hours of hardship to get this far. Documenting the process to save my future self / someone else going through this simple but convoluted process.
