EE 271 Lab 1 An Introduction to Verilog and Digital Parts (Part 1) University of Washington - Department of Electrical Engineering Lab Objectives Read the whole lab first before starting on any work. The first lab for EE 271 will introduce you to the Altera’s Terasic DE1 prototyping board and our primary design tool this quarter, Altera’s Quartus II. Both of these components are very important for all future labs so please pay attention and do not rush through this first lab. Though we typically encourage you to work together, it is recommended you do this lab individually to gain the full benefits of the lab. If you have any questions at any point in the lab, make sure you have read the entire lab thoroughly. If you still cannot find the answer you should ask your TA. And as always, there are no dumb questions, please ask them, you don’t want to damage any of the expensive hardware that is provided for you. Laboratory Design Kits The design kits contain everything you need to construct most of the circuits assigned to you over the course of the quarter. You are responsible for your lab kit and we expect that you will return the kit in good working order with all pieces intact. This especially applies to the chips, which have very delicate pins. Use care when extracting them from the solder-less breadboard. Altera Terasic DE1 Prototyping Board, the solder-less bread board attached to the prototyping board, and the Input/Output Connectors attached to the prototyping board. A USB cable that will be used to power your prototyping board. A Logic Probe. A Set of Provided TTL Logic Chips. All of these chips are Dual-In-Line Packages and are compatible with your breadboard. Please make sure all of the above are provided for you in your kit. For the final project you may decide you need additional chips, switches, lights, and other devices. If so, you can purchase this at EE stores, Radio Shack on the Ave, Fry’s in Renton, or on-line. We are aware that accidents can happen and the pins on chips may already been weakened from years of use. Typically if you break a pin the chip will be replaced and the damage will be forgiven; however in cases of gross negligence you will have to pay for a replacement. Take care not to short out your board by connecting Ground to Power. This results in a large current which can quickly burn all the components of the board, including the board itself. Finally, be careful not to snap off wires inside the I/O connectors or the holes in the solder- less breadboard.

Altera Terasic DE1 Prototyping Board The picture above is a diagram of the prototyping board with most of the major components highlighted. For the first few labs you will be using the various input/output devices located directly on the board such as the switches and LEDs. Further details will be provided in each lab. Take note of the large FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) that is highlighted on the board. Later on in the quarter you will be programming this and directly interfacing with all
