yes you can. If you have a display CRT, like computer monitor, you can look here or here or search this forum. You will simply write a VGA controler in your fpga.

Or you can use a display, such as graphical one or character one. This, i think it`s easier. You will just write the logic to select instruction/program pin, read/write and backlight pin. With a Altera Max 3032 you can easily do this. If my answer does not makes you clear, ask again.

regards

Breno

Breno's second link includes my simple examples of displaying text on an 800x600 computer display using the Xilinx/Digilent Spartan-3 Starter Kit board. One example displays a repeating alphabet, the other inputs text from a keyboard.

yessss
i saw it
thanks a lot
it's very informative and useful...i bookmarked it already!

be sure that i'll get back to you if i'm stuck :D
already i need to display text that it's in a text file, not from the keyboard, so i guess a big part is eliminated and it's easier now :)

thanks again
