  1. Hello Jon! thank you for replying. I was able to read the status register having the temperature result by setting the address to 00h (I saw that in the register space in the manual). However, I have a conceptual question: Does using the DRP as an interface mean any delay in fetching the results? I would need a real time monitor of the temperature, and the application to be developed later on cannot tolerate any delays... So is the DRP the best way to achieve real time monitoring?
  2. Hello, I am kind of new to FPGAs and I am trying to use the XADC in order to monitor the temperature sensor: I am using Vivado 2018.2, Nexys video as a board. I used the IP catalog in order to set up the XADC as following: DRP, Single channel, continuous, disable all alarms, disable reset_in, channel to monitor: temperature I wrote a top level module which reads the bits 4 up to 7 from do_out and light up LEDs accordingly: //part of the top module: module top( input CLK100MHZ, input vp_in, input vn_in, input [1:0] sw, output reg [11:0] LED ); wire enable; wire ready; wire [15:0] data; reg [6:0] Address_in; xadc_wiz_0 XLXI_7 (.daddr_in(Address_in), //addresses can be found in the artix 7 XADC user guide DRP register space .dclk_in(CLK100MHZ), .den_in(enable), .di_in(0), .dwe_in(0), .busy_out(), .vn_in(vn_in), .vp_in(vp_in), .alarm_out(), .do_out(data), .eoc_out(enable), .channel_out(), .drdy_out(ready)); always @( posedge(CLK100MHZ)) begin if(ready == 1'b1) begin case (data[7:4]) 4'b0001: LED <= 12'b000000000001; 4'b0: LED <= 12'b0; 4'b1000: LED<=12'b000000000010; default: LED <= 12'b1; endcase end end ///// I have one problem though, as I come to set the address of the ddr_in as done in a documentation found here which has LEDs displaying potential differences monitored by XADC, I do not understand what 8 bit address I should assign for the DRP to monitor the Temperature Channel ! "Address_in <= 8'h ????" My goal: I need the LEds to display something for the sake of demonstration that I am able to read values out of the do_out. Thank you for your help.
