I need a direction signal for the QuadDec component. Do I place both the Base QuadDec component AND the QuadDec components, and just use the dir output from the base component (make all other connections with the QuadDec component? Or do I need to place and implement the base component with counters as shown on page 15 in the QuadDec V2.30 datasheet? In other words, I lack a basic understanding of how to use the Base components - instead of the normal component, or along with the normal component - and do I need to duplicate all the input connections, or will those exist from the main component. For example, I have a QuadDec_1 AND a Base QuadDec_1 placed on my schematic. Are they the SAME "instance" of the device, or are they two completely seperate devices internally? I hope I have explained it well enough. Thank you for any help you can offer.
Hi Bob. Thank you for the information. I just ran a test placing both QD components (basic and user), and then using the basic ONLY for the direction signal, and the User version for everything else. It seems to work OK. Any disadvantage to doing this? They are definitely seperate instances of the component - I had to connect the A and B signal lines to both...thanks again.
That's great. Thank you! Just for my learning benefit, did you just have to add the Dir output port in the .cysch for that part since dir already existed as an output on the base component? Or did you add any code? Thank you again!
