  1. Thanks. I hadn't seen that PMOD. I've got it on order now from Digikey.
  2. Hello again I was looking at doing a servo project and bought a GWS-S03N servo motor and the HB3 PMOD. Looking at various sites, I have not seen anyone using the HB3 to control a servo. Is the only purpose of the HB3 to allow higher voltages to the servo motor than the Basys2 can output? It appears that pulse control is still coming directly from the FPGA board. So, if I used a higher voltage to the PMOD and motor, is there any chance of damaging the FPGA by connecting it directly to the control line of the servo? Is the HB3 more (or only) intended for driving standard DC motors and not servo motors? thanks
  3. Thanks for the reply. I hadn't thought about running both boards from a single PC. I was thinking of this as a digital project where each student would work on either the receiver portion or transmitter portion separately and then bring the two boards together. They could still do that and one student burn his program to ROM and then move the board to the other PC and connect them.
  4. Hello I'm thinking about a project where I multiplex some data from one Basys2 board and send it to another board to be demultiplexed and displayed. The communication would be over one of the PMOD connector lines with three other lines used as my selection lines for an 8-bit multiplexer. I'm wondering if there are going to be any problems regarding isolation and how the two boards would be powered. Could I power each board from its own USB connector and own PC and just go from PMOD to PMOD, or would this cause problems? Should I write one program to ROM and then power that board from the second board through the first board's battery connector? Would it be best to go from J5 to J5 or could a PMOD Vcc from the second board be used to power the first board? Any other preferred methods? thanks
