    Arty A7 vs Nexys A7

    OK, thanks. I had downloaded from the store page, which links to rev C. The reference page links to rev E

    Arty A7 vs Nexys A7

    Where can I download the schematic for the specific version of the board I have? On the Arty A7 resource page, the schematic linked is rev C.1. The board version I have is rev E (from the silkscreen on the back side just below the bar code sticker). I noticed that some different parts are used between the two and would like to have the schematic specific to my board, if it is available. Thanks

    Thanks @jpeyron for the info. I just received my board and some IO modules so I will be digging through the resources you mentioned

    Arty A7 vs Nexys A7

    Thanks @JColvin for addressing my questions. This is good info. I will be ordering the Arty A7 -100T. I have a couple of more questions if you don't mind... I want to make sure this board has the JTAG interface built-in, like I think it does from the description of the board features. A while back I had ordered a Zynq kit from Avnet and it did not have JTAG built-in nor included with the kit, nor did it have any mention of needing one on whatever sales documentation we read about it before ordering. We needed the HS2, which the user manual did mention. I will be looking to use the Ethernet port on this board. Is the MAC IP core freely available in Vivado or is this a licensed IP? I will eventually need a 10/100/1000 speed MAC to go with my custom board design, if this is supported. I understand that the Arty A7 has a 10/100 PHY. Thanks

    Arty A7 vs Nexys A7

    I have been looking at the Arty A7 and Nexys A7 boards and am confused about the FPGA part numbers listed for them. The Arty A7 specifies the XC7A100TCSG324-1 part number. The Nexys A7 specifies the XC7A100T-1CSG324C part number. The numbers appear to be very similar, but there must be some difference in the two parts. I have been unsuccessful finding anything that breaks down the part number for the Arty. The Xilinx document "XA Artix-7 FPGAs Data Sheet: Overview" has the breakdown in ordering information for the part Nexys part number. Are these in fact identical parts? The Nexyx A7 board appears to be a re-spin of an earlier design. When did this board come available? What about the Arty A7 board, is it a more recent design? I have searched the forum posts and did not find anything addressing this, so I decided to post my questions. Thanks
