Altera Quartus II ROM megafunction?

(1/2) > >>

pyrohaz:
Hey guys,

I'm making a simple VGA image displayer (only a 100x75 pixels at the moment, stored as RGB565 for native output format) and I've implemented VGA timing part and RAM access. The problem I have however is that when I compile my program, Quartus doesn't seem to include my memory block into my final project. Does anybody have any idea why?

Thanks,

Normally, the compilation report shows in warnings/errors why various design modules are not included. Study it carefully and I'm sure the answer will be there.

Read through ALL the warnings. Probalby your block is getting completely optimized away. Look upstream for missing clocks or connections.

I'll post on the Altera forum too, thanks!

I've searched through my compilation messages and there seems to be nothing stating the memory block being removed through optimization. I'm sure its finding the file too as the design unit is being found at compilation.

In my VGA controller VHDL code, I've specified the address and data lines and connected them to the memory block using the block diagram schematic file pictured. I haven't however assigned these address and data lines in the pin planner. Do you think that could be the problem?

No. The fitter would normally just choose any free pins. You would get warnings for unassigned pins, though.
