  1. Hi @dlgeng, I have sent you a PM. Thanks, JColvin
  2. Hi @pedro_uno, I have sent you a PM. Thanks, JColvin
  3. Hi @jRyan21, Do you have some sort of ad block running? I had the same issue just now on my Firefox browser where it was not loading until I disabled the adblock for digilent.com/verify and then the login thing loaded for me. Thanks, JColvin
  4. Hi @cjpilot, This certainly sounds like a hardware issue; I'll send you a PM with warranty instructions. Were the boards being powered through the PROG/UART port or an external power supply at 5V? I imagine this won't be the case, but do you see any damage on C179 and C180 or IC17 on any of the boards? This is more incidental, but it is interesting to me that that on the one board were you are still successfully receiving the VU5V0 but none of the 3 regulators are working is as you describe, since the PGOOD input line is dependent on VU5V0 working. Thanks, JColvin
  5. Hi @canisio, That is correct. MIO50 and MIO51 are connected to a couple of buttons on the Zybo Z7 (as I imagine you know), but then yes, you can use the XGpioPS drivers to control them. The preset for the Zynq IP block already sets MIO50 and 51 to GPIO, so you don't need to change anything in the block design itself. If you need it, Xilinx has an example on using XGpioPs here: https://github.com/Xilinx/embeddedsw/blob/master/XilinxProcessorIPLib/drivers/gpiops/examples/xgpiops_polled_example.c. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, JColvin

    Zybo - USB3320

    Hi @Cristopher8, The USB_CLK_12M line that is attached to the REFCLK pin on the USB3320 is sourced from a 12 MHz oscillator (a DSC1033CC1-12.000); this particular component is located on the "this page intentionally left blank" page of the Zybo Z7 schematic. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, JColvin
  7. Hi @myoungeleg, Yes, they may use the Digilent made images without issue. The only request that we would have (if it spread beyond the classroom, which does not seem to be the case), would be to have a link that goes back to the Digilent website. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, JColvin
  8. Hi @canisio, Pmod JF on the Zybo Z7-20 is an MIO Pmod, meaning that it is connected to the processing system/ARM core (PS) on the Zybo Z7 rather than the programmable logic (PL). You can choose in the Zynq IP in the MIO tab which peripherial type you want connected to the MIO pins associated with JF (only certain ones are connected, so for example for the Zybo Z7-20 only SPI1 has some MIO pin connections that work on JF whereas SPI0 does not). You would then use the associated peripheral library like XGpioPs or XSpiPs to control these pins. You won't be able to add the Pmod itself to
  9. Hi @Payam, I'm not readily able to replicate this error, but from what I and another co-worker of mine recall, here are some things that you can try: If the done LED on the Eclypse Z7 is turned on (green LED next to the power supply connector) is turned on and SDK is just misreporting this, I would try just closing and restarting the Xilinx SDK software. If the LED is turned off, you can program the board (through Xilinx -> Program FPGA), though with program that just uses the ARM processor (like a Hello World project), you are able to just run that project without configurin
  10. Hello, malexander is out of office on vacation at the moment, but should be back in the office this coming Monday. I'm not on the email chain, but I have not heard anything in the way of an update. Thanks, JColvin
  11. Hi @bar.melts, Normally you will need to tell MacOS to run the software anyways, as noted in this thread: Let me know if this does not work for you. Thanks, JColvin
  12. Hi @Alec91, I don't think there is a way to rename the boards unfortunately. Even if it were possible to rename the boards through FTProg or something similar (though you found this doesn't work since it messes up the Vivado Hardware Manager connectivity), I don't think it would ultimately help you because in the Vivado Hardware Manager itself distinguishes between different boards of the same time by their internal serial number/UID. I believe this number is partially shown in one of the barcode stickers on the board, or at least I can confirm that an Arty A7-35 has a sticker with a
  13. Hi @angar, I apologize for the delay; I have moved your thread to a more appropriate section of the Forum where the engineer most familiar with WaveForms installation will be able to see and respond to your question. As confirmation check, have you already installed the USB driver needed for Windows XP machines that is listed under the Supported Operating Systems section on the right hand side of the WaveForms Resource Center, https://digilent.com/reference/software/waveforms/waveforms-3/start? Thanks, JColvin
  14. Hello, I'll be honest in saying that I've read through this thread a few times now, but I don't understand how the breakdown in communication happened. I do not think it is my place to decide who is right or wrong or who started what, nor is a random forum thread on the internet the place to do it; we're all adults who know they can learn more things regarding FPGAs/SoC hardware and software tools. But I'll try to answer some of the original questions. Not terribly difficult with the existing Xilinx functions, though I had to do some digging to find them. These functi
  15. Hi @ThrillScience, They are the same connectors (Digilent resells the Ettus boards, we do not alter the connectors or any other part of the board nor physically brand the board, though I am uncertain if the box packaging is changed in anyway, I suspect not though). I'm not exactly sure what you are referring to in particular, but you might be seeing are black plastic caps covering the connectors which can just be removed. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, JColvin
