General Description

The Count7 component is a 7-bit down counter with the count value available as hardware signals. This counter is implemented using a specific configuration of a universal digital block (UDB). To implement the counter, pieces of the control and status registers are used along with counter logic that is present in the UDB specifically for this function.
