Lab 8 explored the use of an RS232 port to communicate between the FPGA and pieces of circuits that are off of the board. I was able to compile a circuit which listened to the port and transmitted the incoming signal back over the RS232 port to display it on the serial port of a computer. This lab was very useful in showing how one would connect an FPGA to more complicated circuitry and transmit data between the two, allowing the FPGA to add as a central microprocessor for a more complicated lab.
