Do you have a technical question that doesn't really fit a specific console? Want some general info on electronics, hacking, making cookies, etc? Here's the place to ask! Go nuts.

I'm currently looking into buying an fpga board for some simple testing on video game consoles. The language I'm using is VHDL but I don't know that much about it yet.
I was wondering if it was possible to implement a resistor, capacitor or a conductor in an fpga so that external components wouldn't be necessary (particulary for filtering). If it is possible, are there any limitations?
EDIT: I just found this:
Code: Select all
entity resistor is
generic (res : resistance); -- resistance (no initial value)
port (terminal p1, p2 : electrical);
end entity resistor;
architecture ideal of resistor is
quantity v across i through p1 to p2;
-- Fundamental equation
v == i*res;
end architecture ideal;
I don't fully understand the definition: 'terminal p1,p2' does this state where the resistor is placed?

Pretty sure...but I'm not a big fan of VHDL
