UART communication on Basys 3, FPGA dev board powered by ...

Digilent Basys 3, an Xilinx FPGA development board, has one USB-UART connector. To learn how to build UART communication between the FPGA board and the data terminal equipment (DTE) like computer terminal, I build two projects - UART transmitter and UART receiver. Part I focuses on the UART transmitter. We will transmit 8 bits data from Basys 3 to computers through USB-UART connector on Basys 3. When users turn on / off any switch, this form a binary value of an ASCII character. A byte (8 bits) character will be transmitted through the UART to the computer. The character will show in the terminal (Terterm). All transmission is triggered when a button is pressed.
