Blockly VHDL tutorial
This tutorial will learn you how to use Blockly VHDL
for making a design in VHDL.
The blocks are used as a template for the VHDL code, where only some variables has to be filled in.
After completion or during the design process the VHDL code can be extracted from the Blockly design by pushing a button on the right screen, the VHDL code will then be displayed at the screen under this button. The code can be copied and pasted in a other third party design tool or it can be saved as a vhdl file on your drive. The blockly design itself can be saved by saving it as xml file, this file can be loaded back again in the design screen.
For ease of use the tutorials can be practiced on the tutorial page (weblink) were only the blocks that are used in the tutorial part are made visible in the menu structure on the left side of the work area.
Ofcourse this can be automated by sending the signal description as a text string to the WaveDrom function, who interpet it and displays the signal diagram.
The simulation tool is for now only available for the first tutorial, but will be expanded to the other tutorials in future time by upgrading its coverage of the VHDL features.
