  1. Hi Scott, I took a bit a of a deeper look at the chipKIT CAN demo and found that it's going to be quite a bit of work removing the plib.h dependency from the demo, or at least a lot more than I originally thought it might be. I'll try to keep working on it to see if I can get more of the errors resolved, but it may end up being beyond most of the Forum moderators realms of expertise to update this demo to work with the Arduino IDE. Alternatively, you could use the most recent version of MPIDE (before it was depreciated in favor of the Arduino IDE with chipKIT Core) which you can download for Windows, Mac, or Linux. I was able to successfully able to compile the demo (although I don't have the hardware to test it). Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, JColvin
  2. Hi NamrataK, I have asked some of our applications engineers about this; they will get back to you here on the Forum. Thanks, JColvin
  3. Hi DennisT, Ok, I'm glad to hear you're in the correct voltage range. I suppose there could be some library issue between different versions of Arduino boards, but when I looked through the library it seemed fairly agnostic towards which board was being used. I see if I can find some time to try it out myself on a chipKIT board (since that's what Digilent has) and see if I can get it working. Thanks, James Colvin
  4. Hi meteor3223, I have moved your question to a more appropriate section of the Forum where the engineer best suited to answer your question will be able to see it. Thanks, JColvin
  5. Hi Mehdim, I have asked some of our applications engineers about this; they will get back to you here on the Forum. Thanks, JColvin
  6. Hi zynq_tech, I'll ask some of our applications engineers about the documentation and the block design question, but you can view all of Digilent's IP on our GitHub account here. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, JColvin
  7. Hi DennisT, The 5.5V power supply is too high for the AVDD. According to the reference manual and the datasheet for the chip, AVDD needs to be between 3V and 5.25V. In terms of what you would need to change from the 3rd party library, as long as you are using a similar board to what they have code available for (Arduino DUE, Arduino (UNO presumably), or chipKIT MX3), you should not actually need to change any of it. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, JColvin
  8. Hello, One of my co-workers was able to take a look at the library and was successfully getting some relevant data from the Pmod. The biggest thing that they had to make sure of though was that they either had the jumper loaded on JP1 or that they had separately provided a voltage and ground to J4 for AVDD (the analog voltage reference). I imagine you already did one of these options, but I figured I should double check. Also, out of curiosity, what voltage are supplying to AIN0? Thanks, JColvin

    Cmod A7 DIP Footprint

    Hi Leonardo, The CmodA7 has a standard DIP footprint, so the two rows of pins are 0.6 inches apart with 100 mil spacing between each of the pins along the rows. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, JColvin

    RAM write and read

    Hello, I have asked some of our applications engineers about this; they will get back to you here on the Forum. Thanks, JColvin
  11. Hello, You can download Digilent's SPI library from the SPI page on our Documentation site here. Alternatively, the DSPI library is included with the the chipKIT Core for the Arduino IDE. However, the DSPI library was originally created to be streamlined for Digilent boards, so I do not think it supports non-Digilent boards (or at least I am not able to successfully compile programs that include dspi.h that are targeting an Arduino Uno). I will see if any of our applications engineers know if a library exists for the PmodACL that uses the standard SPI, but unfortunately I am personally not aware of any. Thanks, JColvin
  12. A customer on our website asked the following question: I have buy PmodACL, I want to connect it to Arduino with SPI. But I can't find dspi.h file, would you send me? Thank you very much. The response is below.
  13. Hello, What do you mean by Waveform support? Digilent makes the WaveForms software that has a LabVIEW version called LabForms 2.0 which has an Instructable on how to get LabForms up and running here. Otherwise, Digilent does not have any other plug-ins for LabVIEW. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, JColvin
  14. A customer on our website asked the following question: I'm looking for Waveform support for Labview. Labview has very limit functionality when it comes to Circular Vector or Polar graphs and I am curious to know if you have a plugs for Labview that allow for this interface. The response is below.
  15. Hi kostas.sigalas, I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. I haven't gotten the opportunity to try out the library for myself, but I'm definitely interested in doing so since I've tried to create a library for the PmodAD5 before but was unsuccessful. I'll try to take a look at it and see if I can get some data out of it. Thanks, JColvin
  16. Hi Stewart, Thanks for pointing that out! I'll ask some of our applications engineers to take a look into this and make sure that the demo material on our website is accurate. Thanks, JColvin
  17. Hello, The datasheet for the chip used in the PmodLVLSHFT is available from TI here, where you can view the latency for the various logic level transitions. Because of the large number of logic level transtion options it was deemed too cumbersome to list them directly in the reference manual. However, I'll update the reference manual to link to the datasheet more clearly. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, JColvin
  18. A customer on our website asked the following question: Dear Team,I am looking to purchase the: Digilent PmodLVLSHFT, digital logic level shifterbut could not find any information on the clock speeds.My question is, can it sample at 30MHz? If not can you recommend an 8 channel, 1.8V, 3.3V & 5V, 30MHz level shifter.Kind regards, The response is below.
  19. Hello, If I understand it correctly, you were able to download WaveForms 2015 from our website correctly, but not able to then set up Waveforms 2015 on your computer? I presume that you downloaded the appropriate edition of WaveForms 2015 for your operating system? Which operating system are you using? Thanks, JColvin
  20. A customer on our website asked the following question: The other day, I bought a ANALOGDISCOVERY2. However, currently, WaveForm2015 can not download from my PC. Do you have any problems with the web site side? Waveform (3.3.5) was able to download without problems. The response is below.

    Genesys questions

    Hello, You can find all of Digilent's VHDC options on our store here. I'm not certain how stringent your physical requirements are so I don't have a for-sure recommendation to offer. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, JColvin

    Genesys questions

    The customer followed up from the website: I followed up on the threads, not quite what I was looking for. On the Genesys board we are using the VHDC connector with a break-out board to connect to two TI DAC evaluation boards which have a standard 2x16 (0.1") connector. Do you sell mating breakout connectors for VHDC with various connector options on the distal end? The response is below.
  23. Hello, I have asked some of our applications engineers about this; they will get back to you here on the forum. Thanks, JColvin
  24. A customer on our website asked the following question: I am an engineer from NI-Thailand. We have sold your products, 5sets of myRIO mechatronic kits, to our customer. However, all 5 of the servo motors (standard) , one from each set, are not working when try to control via myRIO.I have found that these 5 new servo motors are different from the one kit we have (our old demo kit). The old servo is printed Made in China, the new 5 servos are printed Made in Taiwan. So, I believe that they might be a new lot from your new production line ?Is there any change on your product like changing way to control ? changing power supply need ? .... any other technical changing ? OR they are just defected from this specific lot of production.Please also suggest further on what we can do further based on this situation.Best Regards, The response is below.

    Genesys questions

    Hello, Digilent does not have any FPGA boards with two dedicated DAC channels. However, you could create a pwm signal in the FPGA as described by the links provided in this thread and a walkthrough on implementing pwm by one of our forum members on this thread. As for the mating connectors, what sort of things are you hoping to connect on your board? The Pmod host ports or something else? Thanks, JColvin
