Thread starter girbie5 Start date Jan 17, Hello people, I'm a newbie here and i really need assistance from you guys. I am designing a 4x4 bit multiplier, but after I get the outputs, i have to convert the 8bits output to bcd in order to display it on a 7-segment display.

So if you plz can you plz help me and give me the circuit for conversion. Thank you so much, i would really appreciate your help.

TheOne New Member. For Natural BCD you just group the binary in groups of 4 bits each. For raw binary to BCD there are chips to do the conversion. I need the best optimized way to build the circuit and thats where my problem is.

Yes, a micro-controller would do the job in one cheap chip, a PIC would easily do it - including the multiplication.

How did you design your multiplier? Because it seems very strange as the design of the multiplier in hardware should be as complicated, if not more complicated than what you are asking! Lastly, if the conversion is simply for display purposes, then you probably don't need a hardware solution.A binary to binary-coded decimalor BCD for short, is a method storing decimal numbers in binary form. The majority of the time a number in a logic design is stored as a binary number internally as to simplify math and logic operations and converted to a set of BCD numbers only when it needs to then be sent to something that requires it in decimal number form i.

The Verilog and VHDL code below is for an 8-bit binary to BCD decoder that gives and ones, tens and hundreds decimal place output for driving a display or other device. The modules below take a 8-bit binary number on the number input and converts that number into three 4-bit BCD numbers, one for each decimal place. These 4-bit BCD numbers are still binary numbers but each one only goes from 0 to 9, even though 4-bits can go from 0 to 15, to represent the 10 possibilities of a decimal number.

What was the specific error that it gave about those lines? Can you please help me out in this please. They have many pre-made SPI modules that you could use. I would suggest asking a forum, you will get a quicker response and greater variety of help with your project. A few suggestions would be:. I request you to help me out in this Sir. I have some difficulties simulating the code.

I think that it is because there is no input clock signal in the BCD block. I am using Xilinx ISE 9. Do you have any idea what shall I do to make it work? The code for the Binary to BCD decoder is combinational logic i. If you look at the test bench above, you will notice that the inputs are changed line 43 and then it waits for a period of time line This delay is to allow the changes on the inputs to ripple though all of the logic and show up on the output of the module.

For an older Spartan 3 FPGA the time needs to be somewhere in the 30 ns range, where as a modern Spartan 6 is in the 10 ns range. The inputs can be controlled by a clock but the period of the clock would need to be longer than the time it takes for the changes to ripple through the logic. If the clock is to fast then the changes will have not made it to the output yet and when you attempt to read the output there will be invalid data. It looks that my problem with the simulation was because ISE9.

I installed ISE I only have troubles with creating testbenches. Can you recommend me tutorial on this matter? The process for creating a test bench is very similar to creating an new VHDL entity. ISE will then generate most of the support code needed to implement the test bench and then you would just need to write some code to stimulate the inputs in the same manner that you would change the outputs of an VHDL module.

It is a 14 binary to BCD decoder that you can use. Hello sir I am doing project Fast architecture for decimal digit multiplication.Latest Projects Education. Digital Design binary to bcd converter.

With that I would like to display the answer on a few 7-segment displays. I can find schematics for such a converter but it requirs the sna, which is badly availible.

So do you have a alternitive ic or a schematic with logic gates? Scroll to continue with content. AlbertHall Joined Jun 4, 9, Ian Rogers Joined Dec 12, Lorenzo Silvano Gort said:. Ian Rogers said:. Someone somewhere on AAC said that these were actually eproms and not logic chips at all. Don't know if it was true or not.

## Codes Conversion

The clock can be one available in the calculator. How many digits do you want to display? It requires about 2 counters per digit. Last edited: Mar 5, MrChips Joined Oct 2, 20, So much easier to do it with an MCU. MrChips said:. WBahn Joined Mar 31, 25, Depends upon how many digits he wants to display. But you have a good point. It could get quite long for anything above 7 digits, even using high speed 74HC counters. Above that you probably want to go with a ROM approach, if the TS doesn't want to use any microprocessors.

Here is a project, one chip, done largely with internal LUTs, to do the decoding for a 8 digit solution.Join us now! Forgot Your Password? Forgot your Username? Haven't received registration validation E-mail? User Control Panel Log out. Forums Posts Latest Posts.

In general the most compact routine will use the remainder of a divide by ten to produce a stream of BCD digits from least to most significant. This routine is inefficient because division of a bit value is inefficient with the PIC bit core processor. One of the faster methods uses binary weighted decimal constants to decompose the bit integer into 5 BCD digits from most to least significant digit.

For the MSD the constants are andfor the next they are,then, then 80, 40, 20, Hopefully this will give you an idea or two of how this problem may be solved. Try this. The blocks at the start of the loop adjust the BCD value so that the subsequent doubling by the shift will yield a valid BCD digit. If you double 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 then the result will always valid but if the digit was 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 then doubling will yield an incorrect hexadecimal value a, b, c, d, e, 10 or Adding an additional 6 to these values gives the correct result e.

The code tests which BCD nybbles can't be doubled by adding 3 to each digit. If the result is less than 8 e. If the 3 was not subtracted then when the value is shifted it becomes equivalent to adding 6 and corrects the result. Throughout your life advance daily, becoming more skillful than yesterday, more skillful than today. This is never-ending. Okay used the one form PIC list as I wanted 5 digits. I am trying to display RPM. Access is Denied. Very Nice! Hoodey, I found this and used it. Not sure I follow how it works.

I tried one doing BCD additions, but it was very slow in comparission.Binary coded decimal is used to represent a decimal number with four bits. This can be used to convert a binary number to a decimal number than can be displayed on a 7-Segment LED display.

The algorithm used in the code below is known as a Double Dabble. Binary coded decimal uses four bits per digit to represent a decimal number. For example the number in decimal takes 12 bits to represent. This is useful for applications that interface to 7-Segment LEDs, among other things.

The reason for this is that each 7-Segment display is treated individually each gets 4 bits of the 12 bit number in the example above. The table for BCD is below. The hundreds digit 1 is represented in binary by The tens digit 5 is represented in binary by The ones digit 9 is represented in binary by The entire number in BCD is therefore: However in binary is represented by Again we need a way to convert this binary number to its BCD equivalent To do this, we will use the Double Dabble algorithm.

The Double Dabble Algorithm is described in detail on the linked Wikipedia page. But basically it takes the input binary number as a start. It shifts it one bit at a time into the BCD output vector. It then looks at each 4-bit BCD digit independently.

5 BIT BCD-CODES (OR MORE THAN 5 BIT)

If any of the digits are greater than 4, that digit is incremented by 3. This loop continues for each bit in the input binary vector. See the image below for a visual depiction of how the Finite State Machine is written. The VHDL implementation makes use of variables and the input and output widths can be changed by setting the generics.

Both variables and generics help to make the code more clean and more flexible. Help Me Make Great Content! Support me on Patreon! Buy a Go Board! The Go Board.

I meant something like the "RTL Viewer" mentioned in other posts sorry, in fact I wanted to post in another blogentry of your blog There is a command like this in that link : run -ifn watchvhd.

You have to open this file with a xilinx ngc file viewer. Yes, and my question was if one can invoke such a tool from the commandline I havent explored command line options till. I guess you should try whatever is given in that link. Also share your experience here. But the code will be more complicated. I wrote similar code, but without generic parameter, and I had same problem A,B,C.

My question is: What is relation between n and q, what is relation between number of bits for input bin and number of bits for output bcd? Please, answer again I am beginner and your little help is very great for me. Sory for my bad english, i hope that you can understand me. I found answer for my question, but I need help for implementing that solution. Is this possible to be done with "real" data type,could we use not-synthesizable data type for generic parameterto make synthesizable entity?

Thanks, Men! That function helped me a lot. I made a physical implementation in a Spartan 3E using 8 switches as input and 3 displays as output. I wrote a post Spanish about it. I linked yours, of course! Thanks in advance. Hi, did you managed to figure it out? I am having the same issue.

## Binary to BCD Converter

Working on a project that will be using a modified code for binary to dual bcd outs. Having some issued mapping the inputs to our variables. For example on input is marked as a and will be the MSB coming to the chipset. Thank you. The main problem with your codes, is that when : '' add 3 if BCD digit is greater than 4 '' you do not pay attention of the eventual reminder, indeed if you haveyou add 3 because it is greater than 4, it should give you but you just keep What's the proper way to do this?

I am getting the same result as Sahacha Nilkumhang. Hi guys, Could you provide a testbench for this design? Thank you very much. An algorithm known as " double dabble" is used for this.

It is a system for representing numeric values or quantities using different symbols i. What does base or radix mean? The number of digits symbols a number system use is called base or radix of that number system. What is binary number system?

The binary number system has base 2. It uses the digits 0 and 1 only. How we write a binary number? We can write a binary number as 2 because its base is 2. Keep dividing the quotient till we get the quotient less than 2.

What is the place value of 2 in 10? Now lets see how we can convert a binary number in to decimal number using expansion and place value method. Binary coded decimal BCD is a system of writing numerals that assigns a four-digit binary code to each digit 0 through 9 in a decimal base numeral.

The four-bit BCD code for any particular single base digit is its representation in binary notation, as follows:. Numbers larger than 9, having two or more digits in the decimal system, are expressed digit by digit in binary coded decimal. For example, the BCD rendition of the base number is The binary equivalents of 1, 8, 9, and 5, always in a four- digit format, go from left to right.

The BCD representation of a number is not the same, in general, as its simple binary representation. In binary form, for example, the decimal quantity appears as Step 1 : Convert the binary number to decimal. Convert each digit into groups of four binary digits equivalent. BCD numbering system is very easy to understand, while creating BCD each decimal number is separated into equivalent four bits for each decimal digit within the number.

In the final result each decimal digit is replaced by its weighted binary value performing a direct translation of the number. Below is very simple video presentation that shows in two minutes how to convert a binary number to its equivalent decimal number. Thank you very much. The way of converting the binary to decimal and decimal to binary is wel explained.

Is there any video for this. Sharing is caring:. Like this: Like Loading
