  1. Hi @Monika997, Yes, the Analog Discovery 2 will be able to measure the voltages on two coils, provided they are within the voltage ranges handled by the Analog Discovery 2 (-25V to 25V). There is an examples within WaveForms SDK that demonstrate (C:\Program Files (x86)\DigilentWaveFormsSDK\samples on a Windows machine) that record data from the Analog Inputs to a file. The analog inputs are the orange and blue wires (1+/1- and 2+/2-). Let me know if you have any questions about this. Thanks, JColvin
  2. Hi @AC2RL, I have moved your question to a more appropriate section of the forum where the engineer who creates the WaveForms software will be able to see and respond to your feedback. Thanks, JColvin
  3. Hi @Liur1996, I believe you are asking about recording mode (storing data directly on a computer)? These threads may be of interest to you: link1, link2, link3, link4. Thanks, JColvin

    Digilent HS3 connector

    Hi @andpas, I looked up the information you requested; the minimum pin length to ensure good electrical contact on the JTAG HS3 is 1.95 mm as shown in this reference image on the connectors datasheet. Thanks, JColvin
  5. Hi @sai_a, I would recommend taking a look at this thread, https://forum.digilentinc.com/topic/16176-zyboz7-uart-receive/, that shows the Zybo Z7 taking in data from a computer and then displaying it on a serial terminal without any local echo on the serial terminal enabled. Thanks, JColvin
  6. Hi @peterszilagyi91, I would think it monitors all 4 outputs, but I'll need to ask about this to confirm since I'm not able to find this specified for certain in our documentation. Thanks, JColvin
  7. Hi @Phil, I am going through the tutorial to see what I encounter. Thanks, JColvin
  8. Originally the answer I learned was that it would not be available, but I have brought the topic up again with the appropriate higher-ups to see if their opinion has changed on providing the MTDS firmware.
  9. Hi @jungle, Vivado will automatically generate it's own set of constraints for you based on your block design and board files you provided, so you don't have to worry about that side of things. You can still provide your own .xdc if you want to override Vivado generated constraints or manually provide your own in addition to what Vivado creates for itself though. In terms of having multiple Pmods, there isn't anything in particular that needs to be done if you are using separate Pmod ports. If you are using a splitter to have two 6-pin Pmods on a single Pmod port, then you would need
  10. Hi @Arnaldo Oliveira, The out of box demos for the various Nexys boards are available on the GitHub pages (Nexys 4, Nexys 4 DDR, Nexys A7). The release versions of the various projects were made in specific versions of Vivado so if you use the released project in a different version of Vivado you may need to regenerate the project. The release projects already contain the bitstream though which can be loaded from any version of Vivado. If you want to reprogram the flash though with a .bin file, that will need to be separately generated. Let me know if you have any questions.
  11. Hi @Brent, My initial guess (I haven't seen evidence of this, pure conjecture only) would be that the newer Macbooks are expecting some sort start up communication with the device which the Basys 3 is not set up to do. Alternatively, it could be that these newer Macbooks do not have the D2XX drivers from FTDI and for whatever reason the D3XX drivers (if those are the ones that are installed anyways), so I would probably recommend trying to install those drivers: https://ftdichip.com/drivers/d2xx-drivers/. I do not know if this will solve the problem though since the drivers would pre

    Cmod A7 STP file

    Hi @jHoneyo, I was able to locate the 3D model for the Cmod A7; it is now uploaded and available on the right-hand side of it's Resource Center under Design Resources. Thanks, JColvin
  13. Hi @mgal, The community on the pynq.io website will be the best resource in terms of getting these older materials as they maintain and create the Pynq images, not Digilent. It looks like you can find the older materials on the Pynq GitHub though: https://github.com/Xilinx/PYNQ/branches. Thanks, JColvin
  14. I will let our design engineers know that there is some interest for 1.5V signal support, in case that is something that can be relatively easily integrated into any future versions of the HSX products that might be made. I realize it'll be too little too late for you by then, but perhaps (if Digilent does make it) it will help somebody else. Thanks, JColvin
  15. Hi @iyer25, It is 2019.1 code; the readme was not updated. You can confirm this is 2019.1 from the tcl script that creates the block design which specifies the 2019.1 version of Vivado. Thanks, JColvin
  16. I apologize for the long delay. That is a typo in the table; the JTAG HS3 and JTAG HS2 (and similar products) only support a 1.8V through 5V range. I will make sure this table gets corrected; I imagine the error came from a mistype on a number pad. Thanks, JColvin
  17. I don't know what camera you are hoping to control, but (especially in the case of digital cameras and video feeds) you'll need to ensure that the correct configuration and set-up signals are provided as well as what voltage standard (LVDS, etc) is used by the camera. Thanks, JColvin
  18. Hello, I'm not certain why iMPACT is not detecting the board. We haven't worked with Xilinx's virtual machine that they released to target these older systems, so I'm not certain what the problem might be, especially the Digilent Plugin is already integrated as part of Xilinx's virtual machine release. The best I can point you towards is this Xilinx Answer Record: https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/30184.html. Thanks, JColvin

    PLTW S7 board file

    Hi @lior tamir, Project Lead the Way themselves would be the best resource in terms of finding this particular file. I looked on their website, https://www.pltw.org, but was not able to this file. That being said, I compared the two boards and think you should be able to use Digilent's Cmod S7 board file, available here: https://github.com/Digilent/vivado-boards/tree/master/new/board_files, but I have never tested this. Thanks, JColvin
  20. Hi @christophermyers, This topic is discussed in detail in this forum thread (link to the specific answer here: https://forum.digilentinc.com/topic/4092-smt2-storage-operating-temperatures/?do=findComment&comment=16550). Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, JColvin
  21. Hi @jungle, The GPIO 1 and 2 are the channels that are shown on the axi_gpio_0 IP block in your Block Design, where channel 1 (labeled GPIO) is connected to btns_2bits and channel 2 (labeled GPIO2) is connected to rgb_leds. That is how you can know where the pins are connected; you can see the specific hardware mapping in xparameters.h, located in the wrapper->ps7_cortexa9_0->standalone_domain->bsp->ps7_cortexa9_0->include->xparameters.h. Pmods will be handled similarly; if you haven't seen it before, we have a guide on how to do this in Vitis here: https://referenc
  22. Hi @Toberius, Welcome to the forums!
  23. Hi @fp99, Not particularly for this application. Differential signals tend to be routed such that the pairs are together and of very similar lengths, but if your design does not specifically take advantage of this, it will not matter. Let me know if you have any questions about this. Thanks, JColvin
  24. Hi @anshumantech, Normally I would recommend the Digilent Adept software and an associated programmer like the JTAG HS2, but as noted in the JTAG HS2 reference manual, https://reference.digilentinc.com/reference/programmers/jtag-hs2/reference-manual#supported_target_devices, 9500 series CPLDs are not directly supported as per UG908. I'm not certain why the Spartan 3-AN chip was not able to programmed; the best resource I can point you towards in terms of programming it would be UG332 from Xilinx, https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/user_guides/ug332.pdf. Thanks, JColv
  25. Hi @T.O, Digilent does not have any materials on machine learning, but you might want to look into these pages I found here and here. Thanks, JColvin
