  1. Hello everyone, a time ago I got a Nexys Video board. Today I wanted to check something on the reference page of this board. It seems that there was a small mix-up with the words logic "slices" and "cells". In the info on the right side there is written: "Logic Cells: 33,650 (4 6-input LUTs & 8 flip-flops each)" I think it should be logic slices instead of logic cells. Link: Greetings, MrMcChicken
  2. Hello, I found the problem and solution. I lauchend the 'Vivado HLS 2015.4' shortcut and not the 'Vivado 2015.4' shortcut, The 'Vivado 2015.4' shortcut was not working at first so I thought the other will work fine too. But it seem that both are a bit different. I thought I can start a project like it is described in the tutorial with both. So is HLS for programming a FPGA in C? It seems so to me. Vivado did not start because: The desktop shortcut was aiming to: E:\Xilinx\Vivado\2015.4\bin\unwrapped\win64.o\vvgl.exe C:\Xilinx\Vivado\2015.4\bin\vivado.bat I have changed it to:
  3. Hello, I want to start using FPGAs. At this moment I have no board but I am hoping to get one soon. Yesterday I installed the Vivado WebPack edition 2015.4. Currently I want to learn how to use the Software. I have seen some Tutorials on the Digilent Wiki. So I wanted to install some board files to use with Vivado. Somehow I can not get them to be displayed on the 'Create New Project' wizard. I downloaded the board files and put the folders ( arty,nexys_video,nexys4 ... ) into: E:\Xilinx\Vivado\2015.4\data\boards\board_files. When I start a new project I enter a name at the first pag
  4. Hello, I am new to this forum, so I may introduce myself first. I am from Germany and currentlly visiting a technical college here. Next year I will go to a University to study electronic engineering. My biggest hobby is to waste some time with electronics. I really like microcontroller and spend already some time programming them. Now I want to continue with FPGAs. I want to be able to handle some faster data transmissions compared to microcontrollers. My questions now are about the Pmod connectors. How fast data transmissions can I get? In the document which is aviable at the Zybo page there
