  1. Hi @Mark1000, Yes, the device can be used without internet but after you download and install the drivers and a version of waveforms. It seems that you have an issue with the driver installation. @attila, do what do you think? I believe that is a bit harder to install the correct drivers offline. When you plug the device in, it should be looking for drivers and install them, but you need an internet connection for that step. You need to have MS Visual C++ 2008 also installed. Best regards, Bianca
  2. Hey @Clarissa, You are right. You need to just follow section No 5. After you stored the program, if you want to modify it, you need to create the new .bit and repeat the instructions. Best regards, Bianca
  3. Hi @Franco, Sorry for the late response. I was out of office for a week. I will provide you the application in case no one attended you until now. Best regards, Bianca
  4. Hi @aboursier, You have a personal message. Cheers, Bianca
  5. Hi @DSP, Can you tell me what happened with the board? How did the capacitors came out? Please send me some pictures ass close as you can with the board to see how it looks like. Try to focus as well as you can. Thanks, Bianca
  6. Hi @dlgeng, I can do that but since we want a standardization of all our step files and publish them on the wiki, we will send you a CAD model of the board and publish it afterwards on the reference page. If you really are in a hurry I will PM you with a step exported from Altium but I guess that in one or two days the other one will be ready. Best regards, Bianca
  7. Well @D@n, The project with the camera is not my own. We received a module with the project. As for the pacman, maybe it will be published some day as a project for the Basys3. It still has some issues and I had no time to deal with them. You are right though, @labumm should consider the small memory of the basys3 if he wants to try something like this. Bianca
  8. @D@n, Welcome to the topic. Actually we received something with an OV7725 implemented on a Basys3 and the project is used to track an object. Indeed the memory is limited but it depends on the type of project you are doing. Bianca
  9. Hello @labumm, We don't have a PMOD with camera. Maybe will make one at some point. Have you looked at OV7725 or OV7670? They are some modules that can be interfaced with Basys3 but not directly,You'll need to make an adapter from two Basys3 PMODS to the connector of the module. It shouldn't be very complicated but you'll have to put some work in it. I'm not aware of anything that could be interfaced with our PMODS directly, without any adapters. Maybe someone here might know something else. Best regards, Bianca
  10. Hello, You have here attached a zip file that contains the flash image. You have to boot this from your SD card. Best regards, Bianca
  11. Hi @diya-, Is it late for you if you'll receive it on Monday? We have some demo projects on Zybo Wiki page along with tutorials but the image that was loaded in factory I believe is a bit different. Meanwhile you can take a look here: Best regards, Bianca
  12. Hi @ntm The easiest thing to do is to install the board files and you'll choose from the list of board and not deal with the FPGA. You have here a tutorial depending on the Vivado version you are using: If you really want to introduce the FPGA every single time, the code for Nexys4-DDR is XC7A100T-1CSG324C and it can be listed in Vivado. At least I can find it in 2015.4. See picture attached. Best regards, Bianca
  13. Hi @rangaraj, Basys 3 has indeed a 1.8V power supply. You can find it on the schematics on the last page: and you the 7th sheet you can see the powerbank that uses that voltage. You can output the 1.8V from the board, although it depends on the power you need. The 1.8 can output 300mA. The supply is curently used just for the FPGA If you look closely on the schematic on the last page you can see W1 W2 and W3. on W2 you have a 1.8V PS You can find on the TOP just above the Basys3 label a big plated hole. From that point you can draw 1.8V. You can also fint the 3.3 and the 1.0 and W1 and W3 marked on the bottom. I hope this helps. Best regards, Bianca
  14. Hi @bhfletcher, If you are concerned that the operating temperature is wrong I can tell that it is correct. I personally tested the SMT2 in the -40; +85 range temperature and everything worked without a problem. Regarding the storage temperature, like Jon said, we take it from the lowest level component. I checked them all but I couldn't find the one with -20 to +60. As for the PCB, it shouldn't have any issues. When we are guaranteeing a range it is said that it is functioning in normal parameters. For the PCB alone I will have to contact the factory but for the whole product the temperature is set at the component with the lowest range which from I found is -55 to 125 like Jon said. In this range you should not have issues. Best regards, Bianca
  15. From your screens it looks that you don't have a load connected to the brick. Can you try to see if you can get something better with a load? You can connect a resistor, that should help reduce it. Bianca
