Thank you for your reply. Its nice that you have come up with this opensource fpga board capable of running risc-v and similar cpus.
When you received the iCEBreaker board and plugged it into power for the first time was it blinking?
If so then the board is very likely working totally fine.
Yes it was blinking the first time i plugged it in.
Further, i followed the instructions.
and installed the tool chain (http://www.clifford.at/icestorm/#install)
Since i had not soldered the pmod connectors, the wtfpga.v was modified to use only the
on board push button and leds,wtfpga.v
make && make prog when thru fine.
flash ID: 0xEF 0x40 0x18 0x00
file size: 104090
erase 64kB sector at 0x000000…
erase 64kB sector at 0x010000…
And the leds were responding to button clicks.
After that i soldered the pmod connectors to interface with 7-Segment LED and DIP Switch,
And then i tried the wtfpga prog (modified as well as the original)
In both cases make, make prog went thru fine. but them the LEDs are glowing continuouslt and push buttons dont respond too,.
Would it be the case that the soldering connectors messed up things. (i checked voltages 5v. 3.3v etc they are coming to the pmod connectors). i also checked individual pin shorts etc. does not seem to be a problem
Any suggesting would be highly appreciated.
thanks and regards
