# How do you change the clock frequency in VHDL?

## How do you change the clock frequency in VHDL?

divide_value = (Frequency of Clk) / (Frequency of Clk_mod). For example if you want to convert a 100 MHz signal into a 2 MHz signal then set the divide_value port as “50”. divide_value <= 10; –divide the input clock by 10 to get 10(100/10) MHz signal.

### How do you count seconds in VHDL?

To count seconds in VHDL, we can implement a counter that counts the number of clock periods which passes. When this counter reaches the value of the clock frequency, 100 million for example, we know that a second has passed and it’s time to increment another counter.

#### What is clock frequency in VHDL?

Clock Divider is also known as frequency divider, which divides the input clock frequency and produce output clock. VHDL code consist of Clock and Reset input, divided clock as output. Count is a signal to generate delay, Tmp signal toggle itself when the count value reaches 25000. Output produce 1KHz clock frequency.

What is CLK in VHDL?

► clk’event is an “attribute” of signal clk (signals have several attributes) ► clk’event = TRUE if an event has occurred on clk at the current simulation time. FALSE if no event on clk at the current simulation time.

What is delay in VHDL?

VHDL can model two types of delay in a component: Inertial delay – if two events occur on an input of the component with an interval time less that the defined delay, the output will not reflect either input event, and. Transport delay – Any event on an input of the component will be reflected on the output.

## What is CLK event in VHDL?

### How to measure one second in VHDL?

Every digital design has access to a clock signal which oscillates at a fixed, known frequency. Therefore, if we know that the clock frequency is 100 MHz, we can measure one second by counting a hundred million clock cycles. This blog post is part of the Basic VHDL Tutorials series.

#### What is VHDL clocked logic?

The vast majority of VHDL designs uses clocked logic, also known as synchronous logic or sequential logic. A clocked process is triggered only by a master clock signal, not when any of the other input signals change. The basic building block of clocked logic is a component called the flip-flop.

Can I use VHDL code for a clock divider in my design?

You can use the code above for your VHDL clock design if you need a clock divider by an integer in your design without using the FPGA PLL / DCM. If you use VHDL / RTL code for your clock divider you can easily port your VHDL code on different FPGA or ASIC technology.

What is a counter in VHDL?

In the VHDL example, the counter is used to count the number of source clock cycles we want the derived clock to stay high and stay low. As you can see the clock division factor “clk_div_module” is defined as an input port.
