1.6.2. Create a Divider

Use the following steps to combine the ALTDDIO_BIDIR and lpm_divide IP cores to create a divider.

Follow these steps to create a top-level VHDL file:

  1. In the Intel® Quartus® Prime software, with the ex2.qar project open, open the file ex2.vhd.
  2. On the Project menu, click Add/Remove File in Project. The File Settings page displays.
  3. In the File Settings window, click (...) after File name and browse for ex2.vhd in the project folder.
  4. Select ex2.vhd and click Add.
  5. Click OK.
    The top-level file is added to the project. You have now created the complete design file.

This design implements the divider with the functionality of the ALTDDIO_IN and ALTDDIO_OUT IP cores implemented in a single IP core, ALTDDIO_BIDIR. The bidirectional pins DDR_BIDIR8[7..0] receive data at double the clock rate. The DDRBIDIR8_OUT_H[7..0] signals are the numerator and the DDRBIDIR8_OUT_L[7..0] signals are the denominator. These two sets of signals are passed to the lpm_divide IP core where the quotient and remainder are calculated. The divider calculates the quotient and remainder with a one-stage pipeline. The quotient and remainder are then fed via signals quotient[7..0] and remain[7..0] back to the ALTDDIO_BIDIR megafunction. The ALTDDIO_BIDIR megafunction then drives the data out through pins DDR_BIDIR8[7..0] at double the data rate.
