  1. Hi @jpeyron, I was able to find the root cause. By using the following code for both clocks (10Hz and 500Hz) if (reset) counter2 <= 0; else begin if (enable) begin if (counter2 < `ssd_refresh) counter2 <= counter2 + 1; else begin counter2 <= 0; tmp_clk2 = ~tmp_clk2; end end end when the reset button is pressed (BTNC), there is no clock ticking, therefore the SCLR (reset) in the binary counters is not triggered. When the reset button is released, the binary counters continue where they stopped, as if the reset never happened. By removing the first if, as shown below, the reset works: if (enable) begin if (counter2 < `ssd_refresh) counter2 <= counter2 + 1; else begin counter2 <= 0; tmp_clk2 = ~tmp_clk2; end end I was able to catch it, after simulating the binary counter and observe that the SCLR works as expected. I hope this issue described here may useful saving someone else's time. Cheers, Rafael.
  2. Hello @jpeyron, Thanks for your quick reply. Unfortunately your suggestion did not have the expected result. It resets the clock for the 7seg displays, the binary counters are not reset. After reading the documentation of the binary counter (from the IP Catalog, see reference 2 from my first post), I understood that when when SCLR (reset signal) is asserted for more than on clock period, all the counters would be reset. 4 binary counters outputs (Q[3:0]) would be set to zero, which is not the case. For the same binary counters, the CE signal works as expected, it interrupts the counting process. Well, in theory it is simple, but in practice it appears I forgot something or I am doing something wrong. Cheers, Rafael.
  3. Hello everybody, I am having a problem with the binary counter v12.0 reset SCLR signal, when implementing the Xilinx University Programme, Lab9 Project 3.1, 2015x (1). Environment: OS: Linux (Arch Linux) Xilinx Vivado 2018.3 Digilent Basys3 develoment board Verilog HDL Problem description: The project works as expected (counts up to 5 minutes, 0,1 second resolution), the exception is the counter reset button (BTNC, U18) is pressed it only stops the counting, when released, the counter is not reset, instead it keeps counting where it stopped. I am using the Vivado IP Catalog for generating the clock signal and the 4 binary counters(2) used on each 7-Segiment display digit. The Verilog code and constraint file are attached. The binary counter configuration: Implementing using: Fabric Output width: 4 [3:0] Increment Value (Hex): 1 Restrict Count (Hex): 4, 5, 9, 9 (7seg from left ro right) Count Mode: UP Clock Enable (CE): Checked Synchronous Clear(SCLR): Checked Init Value:(Hex): 0 Synchronous Controls and Clock Enable(CE) Priority: Sync Overrides CE Latency Configuration: Manual, 1 Feedback Latency Configuration: Manual, 0 I suspect I am overseeing/forgetting somewhere a simple detail. Any help/clarification is appreciated. Cheers, Rafael.
