    Can't Program Arty A7-35T

    Hi @MattC, Sorry for the delayed answer. Can you tell me if it shows at all in device manager when you connect the board? Like anything, even unknown device. If so, please please let me know what it shows. Please also go to properties -> Details -> Hardware IDs and send me the HW ID. Have you tried connecting it to another computer? Thanks, Bianca
  3. Hi @Samuel Quiniou, Sorry for the delayed answer. There are no board files for REV E. The only difference between rev E and rev D that might affect your design is the memory. Due to a discrepancy in the manufacturing process on these board a different DDR part was loaded on the board. This memory had the double amount of the original Rev D. We tried to collect them all and replace them with boards with the original memory because none of the available resource materials worked with them directly. We can do the same for you if your board is affected. However, if you want to use the R
  4. Hello, That part has an absolute rating of 6V. The fact that it happened when you switched from REG to USB makes me think that the USB power supply/HUB you were using might have provided a higher voltage. When using the REG, the 5V is created by another power supply, so as long as the 12V power supply you are using is fine, the board should work without problems, and no damage can be done to the board. However, when you power it via USB, the voltage is not limited by anything. If your USB is capable of giving more that 5V by design, (for example Samsung chargers are capable of provi

    PYNQ-Z1 doesn't start

    Hi @nickcamel, I had to request personal information regarding the purchase of the board, therefore the discussion was moved in private conversation. If you are experiencing issues with your PYNQ, please give us some details about the specifics of your problem and we'll help you troubleshoot. Regards, Bianca

    Nexys4 DDR

    Hi @Leo_W, So, I will try to explain to you something from that schematic.... I see that you opened a lot of topics, some of them answered by my colleagues. I suggest you keep all the questions related to a board, or to the same problem in the same topic, otherwise, we can't follow up with you. You asked about IC20... That is an LDO that makes the FT3V3 from the USB 5V0... all the FTDI environment is powered by that FT3V3. Like I said previously in a topic, the FTDI has an internal LDO that makes generates the voltage for the core. Initially I thought the FTDI was powered from

    Nexys4 DDR

    Hi @Leo_W In this picture your board is turned off. Does it power when you switch it on? Does the power led go on? What do you mean by weird voltage on the VCC pin of IC? What did you measure there? If the board does power on, can you tell me what shows up in device manager? If anything at all, even if unknown device, give me the Hardware ID.. Regards, Bianca

    Nexys4 DDR

    Hi @Leo_W, That's an internal voltage generated by the FTDI... There's a missing page in the schematic that includes the programming solution which is a proprietary design. Best regards, Bianca
  9. @BALA, Well, you seem to have a short circuit to the 3V3 rail. I don't know if all the others are functioning well. If you can find the short circuit and remove the component that's causing it and replace it with another one, your board should work again, if the other rails are fine. Check the schematic for the 3V3 rail and try to look at the board. Maybe there is a component (capacitor/resistor) visible burned and you can remove it. Bianca
  10. Hi @BALA, Can you please give me more details with the work you were doing when the board shut down? Were you using external devices on the IOs? I need details like, was the board powered just with usb or through AUX? Were you touching the board at that point? You said you checked the PS voltage drop to 24V... This is confusing... You meant 2.4V? Where did you measure? Is the board not functioning just with USB or also with AUX? If you tried just using the USB, is it possible to power it through AUX as well and see of it works? Can you please measure some voltages on t

    DMM Shield

    Hi @Zoran, Those transistors have the collector shorted to the base and they function as a diode. The circuit there is basically a clamping circuit to limit the over and under voltage. Regards, Bianca
  15. Thanks, I thought you might've got a REV E. That would be a little more problematic when following the tutorials. With REV D you're good to go... Bianca :)
  16. @tt12345678 Can you tell me also how recently you bought your ZedBoard and which revision you have? Thanks, Bianca
  17. Hi Takashi, I am not very sure what you are asking. If you are referring to the XADC Pmod, I can tell you that this is wired to the auxiliary analog input pins of the FPGA. The pins can be configured as analog input, or digital input/output. The XADC is a dual channel 12-bit ADC converter and can go up to 1MSPS. The VCC pin of the Pmod is able to provide 3.3V . The FPGA Bank (Bank 15) where the analog pins are connected is also powered at 3.3V. If you want more information about the XADC and how you can use it, you can check the Xilinx UG480

    Zedboard REV E

    @Ayexor Please write an email at [email protected] with the number of REV E you currently own and their serial number and I'll pick it from there. Thanks, Bianca

    Zedboard REV E

    Hi @yunus, We received an email on support regarding your issue from the distributor. We'll move the discussion there. Also, please check your private messages. Thanks, Bianca
  20. @FrozenW, Zybo Z7 can be powered through USB only, without a wall supply or a battery. Please look at the jumper position to be set between VU5V0 and USB like on the picture below. Check the markings on the board for the proper way to power the Zybo. You shouldn't have to use your Discovery to power the Zybo. Regards, Bianca
  21. Hi @venkat kulkarni Can see anything in device manager? Does it enumerate in any way when you connect the board? Bianca
  22. I couldn't really say if it's harder or easier but for the Pcam we already provide an IP, example projects and even a workshop documentation. You can see info regarding the camera, lens, projects and what we offer for it on the Pcam 5C resource center page: The IP and demo project are public on our github: Bianca
  23. Hello, Well, the FPGA is the same, so what you want to look at, are the other features like the memory, Audio, Digital I/O. Maybe you also want to use some buttons or switches at some point, and you want them on the board and not as expansion. Between PYNQ Z1 and Arty Z7, the only difference is that the PYNQ has a microphone and Arty Z7 doesn't, otherwise they are identical from the specs point of view. With this in mind, I will talk about the comparison between the Arty Z7 and Zybo Z7... They both have HDMI In and Out, but if you also want Audio codec you can find that on
  24. Hi @mati, You have a private message. Regards, Bianca
  25. Hi @Shalom, In case you want to match the output you'll use the 50Ohm jumper position in order to have adaptation. In this case your amplitude will be divided by 2. In the case you want to use the Gavegen just as a voltage source and don't want to reduce the amplitude, you can leave it to 0V. Regards, Bianca
