  1. Hi @juavo, I asked one of the engineers more familiar with the OpenLogger firmware and they think it would be possible to disable the WiFi via that pin/resistor and use the OpenLogger exclusively over USB. I do also want to clarify (much like other hardware) that making direct modifications to the hardware such as changing/removing the resistor will void the warranty for the board. Let me know if you have any questions about this. Thanks, JColvin
  2. Hi @petera, It looks like the 2016.4 variant of the GPIO project on the release tab doesn't have all of the needed resources packaged into it; I'll request that gets updated. In the meantime, you can use the 2018.2 release variant available here: https://github.com/Digilent/Nexys-Video-GPIO/releases. For this particular release of the project, you won't need to go through the steps you listed in your initial post. You will be able to simply open the Vivado project and tell the pop-up that appears to automatically upgrade the project. You will then be asked to upgrade to some IPs via the Report IP Status. Make sure they are all selected and press the Upgrade Selected button at bottom of the screen. You might see a pop-up that asks if you want to enable core container; go ahead and choose to continue with the core container disabled. You should then be able to successfully generate a bitstream for 2019.1 Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, JColvin
  3. Hi @Lucky, In general, we do not provide this information. If you wish, I can provide you with contact information of the Digilent employee who addresses these inquiries, though I personally have never seen this request granted. Thank you, JColvin
  4. Hi @czepek88, Thanks for sharing the solution you found! Thanks, JColvin
  5. Hi @Arvid, I have sent you a PM about this. Thanks, JColvin
  6. Hi @Zainab, I believe that is correct that the 1 million samples is only available on the record mode. However, because it is streaming the data over USB, you will be limited to a 1 MHz sample rate and would not be able to use the 100 MHz sample rate you show in your screen capture. The sample rate and frequency are effectively the same thing; the hardware is always sampling at the 100 MHz rate, but the software will report a smaller number of samples. The Analog Discovery 2 (and the original) both have a maximum sample rate of 100 MHz as limited by the hardware, so you would not be able to achieve a 500 MHz sample rate. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, JColvin
  7. Hi @Geoff, I believe the issue with the Raspberry Pi's was the underlying USB firmware on the Raspberry Pi end of things. I presume none of these ports have been through a USB hub? Thanks, JColvin
  8. Hi @cepwin, I was actually referring to Xilinx SDK; it usually comes with the Vivado download unless you specifically exclude it. I don't think you would need Adept SDK in your situation. Thanks, JColvin
  9. Hi @petera, Which project are you attempting to run and which version of Vivado are you using? Thanks, JColvin
  10. Hi @cepwin, This particular demo does utilize some IPs created by Digilent that we would need to upgrade to specific Vivado versions. I believe there is a plan to upgrade all of the Digilent projects in the upcoming months, though I do not know to what version they will be upgraded to. I don't think you need to use HLS specifically, though I would probably recommend using SDK (I didn't create the Pcam project so I don't fully know the intricacies). Thanks, JColvin

    Defective item

    Hi @Danh Hoang, That is correct; our sales team, since they are not engineers and the ideal situation for everybody involved is that a simple fix was found for you that requires the minimal amount of time on everybody's part, so we pursue that option first. Since it does appear to be a manufacturing defect, I will now have our sales team contact you through the information you provided me in a PM. Let me know if you have any questions about this. Thanks, JColvin

    JTAG-HS2 program issue

    Hi @Chase, Did options I presented work for you in this situation? Thanks, JColvin

    Defective item

    Hi @Danh Hoang, I apologize for the delay; the likely case is that the first LED burnt out. Since it looks like you probably purchased it within the warranty range (it'll depend which vendor you purchased it from) and I think you would be able to get it replaced (I'm not part of the sales team so I don't have final say on this). I have sent you a PM with some additional details. Thanks, JColvin
  14. Hi @saibot, Unfortunately, we don't have a lot of resources for using MPLAB with the Pro MX7 board. The Digilent Core (essentially an extra library set of the Arduino IDE) does have some materials for TCP/IP materials for it, though it does not use MPLAB. I am not familiar with Harmony, so I don't have any advice for that end of things. Thanks, JColvin

    Defective item

    Hi @Danh Hoang, Did you load any different program into the QSPI memory of the Basys 3 or change GPIO demo that I directed you to at all? Thanks, JColvin
  16. Hi @piccolo, Could you provide a picture of your setup? How are jumpers JP4 and JP5 configured? And out of curiosity, did you press the reset and prog buttons at the same time or at different times? What version of Vivado are you using? Thanks, JColvin
  17. HI @300cpilot, If the port is truly broken and can't be simply bent back into place (I have done this successfully with a few boards that have been damaged this way and been able to communicate with them) and the PCB traces are not damaged, then you might be successful in replacing the micro USB connector itself (some more information on this thread). And to clarify, which port are you referring to on the Nexys Video that was damaged? The "PROG" port (J12) or the "UART" port (J13). Serial traffic will only be available on the UART port. Thanks, JColvin
  18. Hi @Vishnuk, This sounds a bit like a class project, so while I won't be just providing the code, I can try to answer specific questions that you may have. In the mean time, I would recommend taking a look at this thread where the user worked through receiving signals from a UART input to modify the LEDs present on the Basys 3. A quick internet search also brought up a VHDL UART echo project, though it was designed for a different board and probably different UART settings than you want. Thanks, JColvin

    Defective item

    Hi @Danh Hoang, To confirm, you are using a Basys 3? Can you provide a picture of your board while it is plugged in and turned on so I can see the setup (in particular jumper JP1)? Presuming you are using the Basys 3, are you able to run the GPIO demo that is available for it? This sets up the hardware so that the first switch (SW0) controls the state of the first LED (LD0). Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, JColvin
  20. Hi @pgmaser, I apologize for the delay. Unfortunately, those of us here at Digilent don't have experience with using Mathworks with the microchip parts, so unfortunately don't have a lot of direct advice for this with regards to programming an controlling the MX370 from MATLAB. Thanks, JColvin

    Did you have a question associated with your post @RajD?
  22. I understand. Unfortunately, since we don't actively sell/redistribute the Raspberry Pi or other platforms that uses python as their primary programming method, the people who get to choose what is created for the Pmods and in what format (not me) decided that we would not develop python examples for them. Thank you, JColvin

    Firmware via Android

    Hi @Taras, I checked with another one of our engineers and unfortunately, we are not able to provide any of the internals of the Adept library. Thanks, JColvin

    Hi @AvaTRm, Digilent has a getting started with Vivado guide here as well as a tutorial for an initial project (though it is for Verilog). Otherwise, I would recommend looking at the fpga4fun website and the asic-world website as good resources for beginners. Otherwise, the most complete documentation will from Xilinx such as their own User Guide for Vivado. There isn't a one-stop shop for learning everything about FPGAs as there are a lot of materials any things to learn with FPGAs. The Nexys 4 DDR Resource Center has some materials as well. Thanks, JColvin
  25. Hi @toshas, From my understanding based on both the store page and the reference manual is that the development Pmod compatibility with the HAT adapter is done by RS Components. Thank you, JColvin
