    Type 6 Expanded?

    Hi JColvin, Just read the update for Type 6A. Might be a minor cut and paste issue. Looks like some of the Expanded UART description snuck in. -Kevin

    Type 6 Expanded?

    Thanks, I will download and adjust my documents as necessary, -Kevin PS if someone on the Digilent team would like a PMOD or two from Renesas, please let me know. We will have 9 new by end-of-year.

    Thanks. Just FYI, I am about to release 9 PMODs and would like to officially call them Type 6A rather than Type 6 + Type 1 in the documents Example 3D rendering attached. -Kevin

    Type 6 Expanded?

    Hello JColvin, Any new on this update? I would like to release some PMODs and MCU boards that use this. Would be nice if I could say "Type 6A" rather than Type 6 + Type 1 in my documentation Regards, Kevin

    Thanks! Do you need any other information from me? -Kevin

    Hello JColvin, I know it is not high priority, but any updates to this? -Kevin

    Type 6 Expanded?

    Hello JColvin, Tell the team, thanks for considering, I hope I can answer to your satisfaction. In first ROW, we are already using RESET and INT, the alternate signals in Type 6. First, I am not sure we should define the second row with anything but GPIO, but if you are planning on defining alternate signals, I have 3 desired.. Second, the currently planned signals may apply to other vendors of I2C devices. Right now, the 3 I need are: BUSY# - Wired ORed, low true so tells the MCU someone on the I2C chain is Busy. You can poll the status of certain sensor witho

    Yes, would desire that a Type 6A be added. We are in process of designing some Sensor modules that need a couple of extra GPIO on the second row. We can control our own MCU board designs, but would like to say we use a "PMOD standard" that is in the specification. Seems like there are a couple of "Expanded" standards, so hopefully this fits the flow of the specification. I understand that the dual row are GPIO, but it does not guaranteed SCL and SDA on the correct pins for I2C (aside from bit-banging which is painful). Am I correct? Thanks for your consideration in this matter
  10. We are using the type 6, but we want a second row to add “proprietary functions” for some I2C sensors (i.e. power control / enable, BUSY#, etc…). Right now we are calling it Type 6 + Type 1 in second row. Much like there is a type 2 SPI and a type 2A Expanded SPI, it would be nice to have Type 6A Expanded I2C. What are the possibilities of adding a type 6A Expanded I2C where the second row is all GPIO? How do I put in an official request to Digilent Engineering? PMOD_example.bmp
