|Name||Implementing LED drivers in MAX devices (AN 286)|
|Description||Many LEDs, such as the seven-segment display, are common-anode LEDs. The LEDs anode connects to VCC and each cathode connects to an output pin of the current-sinking LED driver chip. The driver chip sinks the DC current required to drive the display, and the LED turns on when the driver chip's output pins drive low. Current-regulating circuits are implemented inside the LED driver chips. |
Current-sinking LED drivers are more common than current-sourcing drivers are .

Note: After downloading the design example, you must prepare the design template. The file you downloaded is of the form of a <project>.par file which contains a compressed version of your design files (similar to a .qar file) and metadata describing the project. The combination of this information is what constitutes a <project>.par file. In releases 16.0 or newer, you can simply double click on the <project>.par file and Quartus will launch that project.
Browse to the <project>.par file you downloaded, click next, followed by Finish, and your design template will be installed and displayed in the Project Navigator pane in Quartus.
Note: When a design is stored in the Design Store as a design template, it has been previously regression tested against the stated version of Quartus software. The regression ensures the design template passes analysis/synthesis/fitting/assembly steps in the Quartus design flow.
At the command-line, type the following command:
Once the process completes, then type:
