The electrostatic force imposed by the grid pulls rays of energized electrons from the cathodes, and those rays are fed by the current that flows into the cathodes. The output enable OE and write enable WE signals are shared by both devices, but each device has individual chip enable CE signals. A VGA controller circuit decodes the output of a horizontal-sync counter driven by the pixel clock to generate HS signal timings. This demo, also available on the resource CD and on the Digilent website, can serve as a board verification test since it interacts with all devices and ports on the board. It can operate as a typical asynchronous SRAM with read and write cycle times of 70ns, or as a synchronous memory with an 80MHz bus. LCD displays use an array of switches that can impose a voltage across a small amount of liquid crystal, thereby changing light permittivity through the crystal on a pixel-by-pixel basis.

These regulators not only use USB power efficiently, they also allow the Nexys2 to run from battery packs for extended periods. The Digulent port provides board power and a programming interface, so the Nexys2 board can be used with a notebook computer to create a truly portable design station. The controller must produce synchronizing pulses at 3.
This signal connection scheme creates a multiplexed display, where the cathode signals are common to all digits but they can only illuminate the segments of the digit whose corresponding anode signal is asserted.
When vigilent in synchronous mode, continuous transfers of up digileng 80MHz are possible. Between the grid and the display surface, the beam passes through the neck of the CRT where two coils of wire produce orthogonal electromagnetic fields. Using this circuit, different colors can digilfnt displayed, one for each unique 8-bit pattern.
Of these possible patterns, the ten corresponding to the decimal digits are the most useful. If a board fails test within the warranty period, it will be replaced at no cost.
Pushbutton inputs are normally low, and they are driven high only when the pushbutton is pressed. The Nexys2 board can also receive power from or deliver power to a peripheral board connected to a Pmod connector or to the large pin expansion connector.

Many connector signals digilfnt routed to the FPGA as differential pairs, and 47 connector pins are tied to ground, resulting in a very low-noise connection system. Eight LEDs are provided for circuit outputs. PS2-style keyboards use scan codes to communicate key press data. The Nexys2 board includes a 50MHz oscillator and a socket for a second oscillator.

Each key is assigned digileny code that is sent whenever the key is pressed; if the key is held down, the scan code will be sent repeatedly about once every ms. This demo, also available on the resource CD and on the Digilent website, can serve as a board verification test since it interacts with all devices and ports on the board.
Further, if the jumper is set to VU, a voltage source connected to the Sigilent can drive the main power bus of the Nexys2 board, so care should be taken to avoid connecting conflicting power supplies. The Nexys2 brings leading technologies to a platform that anyone can use to gain digital design experience.
LCD displays use an array of switches that can impose a voltage across a small amount of liquid crystal, thereby changing light permittivity digildnt the crystal on a pixel-by-pixel basis. These particle rays are initially accelerated towards the grid, but they soon fall under the influence of the much larger electrostatic force that results from the entire phosphor-coated display surface of the CRT being charged to 20kV or more.
The keyboard uses open-collector drivers so the keyboard or an attached host device can drive the two-wire bus if the host device will not send data to the keyboard, then the host can use input-only ports.

The clock synthesizers called DLLs, or delay locked loops provide clock management capabilities that include doubling or quadrupling the input frequency, dividing the input frequency by any integer multiple, and defining precise phase and delay relationships between various clock signals. The pixel clock defines the time available to display one pixel of information.
When using USB power, care must be taken to ensure the Nexys2 board and any attached peripheral boards do not draw more than mA, or damage to the host may result. Four pushbuttons and eight slide switches are provided for circuit inputs.
The FPGA can be programmed in two ways: The self-aligning Hirose FX-2 connector can be used for board-to-board connections or board-to-cable connections using the mating Hirose FXS The Nexys2 board typically draws around mA from the USB cable, and care should be taken especially when using peripheral boards to ensure that no more than mA is drawn.
On my 64 bit Gentoo system, with their So the Digilent Adept software has its own installer. A host device can also send data to the keyboard. Each time the mouse is moved, three bit words are sent from the mouse to the host device. The power supply routing and bypass capacitors result in a very clean, stable, and low-noise power supply. The mouse assumes a relative coordinate system wherein moving the mouse to the right generates a positive number in the X field, and moving to the left generates a negative number.
