END CASE;
END PROCESS;
END convertor;```

a) Gray to BCD
b) 7 segment to BCD

7. What is the function of the below code?

```ENTITY my_logic IS
PORT (din : STD_LOGIC_VECTOR(7 DOWNTO 0);
Count : STD_LOGIC_VECTOR(3 DOWNTO 0));
END my_logic;
ARCHITECTURE behavior OF my_logic IS
BEGIN
Count <= “0000”
PROCESS(din)
BEGIN
L1: FOR i IN 0 TO 7 LOOP
IF(din(i) = ‘1’) THEN
Count = count+1;
ELSE
NEXT L1;
END LOOP;
END PROCESS;
END behavior;```

a) To count number of ones in the given data
b) To count number of zeroes in the given data
