  1. Hi @Lina, I apologize for the delay. Digilent does not have any materials using an MX7 based board with FreeRTOS. It seems that MPLAB Harmony from Microchip has some material (such as the one here), though they all use an Ethernet starter kit, and I'm not certain how easily that could be adapted to the already included Ethernet hardware. Thanks, JColvin
  2. Hello, We (Digilent) do not have any formal examples or materials to be use Ethernet in RTL; we have some material that uses the Ethernet with Microblaze for a different Artix chip here that you could reference, though it will not be quite so straightforward to convert into RTL. Taking one of zygot's statements out of context, there are a lot more fine-grained details to worry about. Thanks, JColvin
  3. Hi @Spitzer, I learned for certain that Digilent did not get a hand in developing this new kit (hence the lack of Digilent's icon on the new kit). Could you let me know which chips had reverse or changed pinouts so I can get that updated on the store page and the Digilent Wiki? I will also work on getting a new kit tracked down so we can make note of any other changes that have occurred in detail. Thanks, JColvin
  4. Hi @Bill_H, I'm not sure which datasheet you happened to look at, but did you look at the one that we have in the Additional Resources section of the Pcam 5C Resource Center (link)? I'm not certain what you are referring to with regards for "the linux driver" but our demo application does not use a linux system. Thanks, JColvin
  5. Hi @rgc, Digilent does not have any formal tool to load a flash program onto a Cmod A7, nor does Xilinx as far as I am aware. If you are looking to program a Cmod A7 with a .bin file for flash, you will need to use one of the alternate solutions listed by our two community members above. If you just need to load a volatile .bit file though, you could use Digilent's Adept software to load it to the Cmod A7. Thanks, JColvin
  6. Hi @aadgl, I apologize for the delay. I have reached out to another engineer about this; I also received the same errors, but I'm uncertain of the way to correct this. Thanks, JColvin
  7. Hi @Tim S. The schematic is correct; I confirmed with a multimeter as well that Pin 8 is the reset pin and Pin 7 is no connect. I will update the reference material and request that the packaging gets updated as well. Thanks, JColvin
  8. Hi @Spitzer, I took a look at our storefront as well, and it seems that the parts kit (while still maintaining the same storefront pictures, but changed the photos for the individual components) has a new version of the kit and links to Analog Devices reference page on the kit here: https://wiki.analog.com/university/tools/adalp2000/parts-index. Based on this, I would presume the kit and the included components are selected by ADI, though I do not know this for certain. I do not have this new kit myself, but I have reached out to some of my co-workers to see if they have it and can confirm the pin arrangement of the ADTL082. Thank you, JColvin
  9. Hi @jcabeza, Unfortunately, the Digital Discovery is not compatible with MATLAB, only the Analog Discovery and the Analog Discovery 2. Thank you, JColvin
  10. Hi @varunnagpaal, I asked one of our design engineers about this and they let me know the following: "Based on the information that was provided the pin mapping appears to be correct. There’s a lot of extra wiring there which will add additional capacitance which may end up causing timing issues, depending on how fast TCK is running. I’d try eliminating half the length of wire… probably by plugging the flywire that’s coming out of J2 directly into the pins on the HS3. Another thing I would try is reducing TCK which can be done by connecting to a Local Target in Hardware Manager (don’t use Auto connect) and selecting a frequency as shown in the image here (attached below)." Please let us know if you have any questions about this. Thank you, JColvin
  11. Hi @jcabeza, I personally haven't worked with MATLAB and the Digital Discovery but I have reached out to another engineer to get their thoughts on this. Thanks, JColvin
  12. Hi @krjdev, I apologize for the delay. When you are using an external power supply, what jumper setting are you using on JP6? The power supply does sound like it provides the correct voltage. eFuse won't be involved here; it's an internal setting within the FPGA if you wanted to encrypt it. Thanks, JColvin
  13. Hi @Kris Persyn, If the bank was damaged, unfortunately there will not be a way to get it working again. If by chance just a couple of IO pins were damaged you could avoid using them, but there isn't a way of repairing them. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, JColvin
  14. Hi @jmcexx, I asked one of our design engineers about this and they let me know that from a hardware perspective that this would work. However, they also let me know that the USB configuration probably requests 0 mA of current and with the configuration the you are describing the current draw from VBUS will be non-zero so there's a small chance the PC will complain but they imagine it will work in 95% of the cases. Thanks, JColvin
  15. Hi @Raghunathan, Have you been successfully able to connect via WiFi? Thanks, JColvin
  16. Hi @anshumantech, I think this is one of those situations where Adept (in it's early days of development) had extra devices added to it's internal compatibility table in the thoughts that they would be programmed in the same way that other devices in their family would be, but that is not the case everything, such as for the PROM XCF02S. I believe Adept will be updated at some point so that it properly excludes these devices that are not actually compatible. Thanks, JColvin
  17. Hi @anshumantech, I looks like you posted this on the Xilinx forum (though I don't know why it is marked as solved, so you may want to post on that thread again). Unfortunately, Digilent does not have much in the way of advice as it is my understanding that the Spartan-3AN support is all done by Xilinx and the hardware portion was done by Digilent. Since you have the same OS setup between both boards, I am not certain what the issue might be. Thanks, JColvin
  18. Hi @kranthibabu, What version of Vivado are you using? Additionally, the word document you attached shows you are using ISE's iMPACT, not Vivado. Are you specifically using the Zedboard? Could you also provide a picture of your physical setup with the Xilinx Platform USB Cable and the FPGA? Feel free to attach the details directly in the thread. Thanks, JColvin
  19. Hi @Meins321, The Analog Discovery 2 digital inputs are based on 3.3V CMOS logic with 5V tolerant inputs; there is some more details available in the Digital I/O section in the reference manual here: https://reference.digilentinc.com/reference/instrumentation/analog-discovery-2/reference-manual, so you would need to get the 24V signals to much lower values. That being said, I do not see a way to do this with a single pin. It may be possible to set this up with two possible pins, though I'm not seeing an easy way to do this. @attila, for when you get back from vacation, is setting up an inverting output something that can be done? Thanks, JColvin
  20. Hi @Victor, Yu can ignore these warnings; I ran the 2016.4 HDMI project (generated the bitstream and launched SDK) on the Zybo Z7-10 and can successfully see my desktop extension. Please let me know if you have any questions about this. Thanks, JColvin
  21. Hi @ChrisFishbowl, The part is a linear regulator. Specifically it is ADP123AUJZ-R7 in a 5 lead TSOT package. Thanks, JColvin
  22. Hi @P. Fiery, I have tagged the engineer, @attila, who will be best able to address your question as they are much more familiar with the WaveForms software. Thanks, JColvin
  23. Hi @ChrisFishbowl, I apologize for the delay. Unfortunately, it sounds like that particular IC got burned out. As you noticed, all of these components are surface mount and tightly packed together, so a repair would be difficult to perform (in addition to not knowing if other components are damaged besides the one getting hot), but let me know if you want to pursue that route. Thanks, JColvin
  24. Hi @petera, As an additional thing I forgot to ask, do you have the Digilent board files installed? If not, you can make sure they are installed by following this tutorial that we have. Thanks, JColvin
  25. The pdf version of the reference manual has been updated to include the Oscillator section that was previously missing.
