  1. A customer on our website asked the following question: I plugged in the Arty-board, and things twinkled, and I was VERY PLEASED that the Digilent/adept/djtg API that I downloaded years ago and use with my various older Digilent boards works with this new board too for jtag communication with the fpga. So I should be able to use EXACTLY the SAME scheme for jtag-configuring from .svf files that I use with the older boards. Great! 3. But, sadly, it seems I have to use Vivado, not ISE, with this board. Is there really no way to use ISE??? If not, then I shall use vivado, like ISE, from a script (gnu/linux), not from the GUI. So do you have an example of a single command-line that takes a .vhd, and a .ucf and causes Vivado to produce a .svf? Without any GUI clicking, and without me having to spent a lot of time (as I did with ISE) to find out how to do this??? I am sure I am not the first to ask. Thanks in advance The response is below.
  2. Hello, Yes, you can purchase just the LabVIEW Home Bundle without any other components. You can install LabVIEW Home along with the LabVIEW MakerHub LINX as per these tutorials on LabVIEW MakerHub's website. Feel free to post any further questions you have here on this thread or on the LabVIEW MakerHub Forums, Thanks, JColvin
  3. A customer on our website asked the following question: Hello, I saw your offer for a LabView Bundle together with a BeagleBoneBlack. I have already a BeagleBoneBlack. So, could I buy only the LabView Home Bundle and install it on my BeagleBone myself? If yes, is there any description? The response is below.
  4. Hello, I have asked some of our applications engineers for feedback on both of your questions. In regards to your second question though, it will be helpful for our applications engineers to know what SoC you have written and which IPs you are referring to. Thanks, JColvin
  5. A customer on our website asked a couple of questions: Hi, it's me again. I need to use the pmod SD with the microblaze soft processor, however I see no good tutorial for this. I am using Vivado and am only proficient with VHDL. Please help. and Hi. One more thing. can you direct me to a tutorial on how to integrate the part of the Soc that I have written in VHDL with the IPs provided by Vivado. Thanks for your time. The response is below.
  6. Hello, I have asked some of our applications engineers about this; they will get back to you here on the forum. Thanks, JColvin
  7. A customer on our website asked the following question: I would like to purchase the Digilent HS2 JTAG programming cable. Before I can do so, I must get a "Letter of Volatility" indicating the types/sizes/accessibility of all memories in the device. I am hoping that Digilent deals with this sort of request all the time and that you have a "Letter of Volatility" already available. If not, I can send a sample form to Digilent. Please email or call to let me know. Thank you very much. The response is below.
  8. Hi Goutham, Welcome to our Forum! We're excited to have you here; embedded design is definitely a cool application to explore. ~JColvin
  9. Hello, The PmodOLED is configured so that the internal DC/DC boost circuit is used, so it was deemed not necessary to put into the reference manual as the user only needed to make sure they supplied 3.3V to VCC. Otherwise, as per the display datasheet linked in the reference manual, the display needs between 7V and 7.5V with a typical supply of 7.25V. I'll see if I can get the PmodOLED datasheet updated to explicitly state this somewhere. Thanks, JColvin
  10. A customer on our website asked the following question: Neither the catalog page or datasheet, or even schematic for the PmodOLED: 128 x 32 Pixel Monochromatic OLED Display has the required voltage for the power supple of the display. What is it? It would help other customers as well if you added that in. The response is below.
  11. Hi daumanec, I talked with some of our application engineers and yes, you can use the JTAG-HS2 to program your board. I only asked about the Digilent boards because they already incorporate the necessary programming solution that is present on the JTAG-HS2. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, JColvin
  12. Hello, You are correct, you will not be able to use a USB Application library because the uC32 does not have a USB host receptacle on board. There are only two ways that I am aware of that you would be able to control the uC32 from your PC. One is the communicate with the board through the Serial Monitor of MPIDE or the Arudino IDE and have the uC32 preprogrammed to execute different functions when you type different lines of text into the Serial Monitor. You can learn more about this in one of Digilent's blog posts. The other way that I know of is that you can actually control the uC32 through LabVIEW. I have used LabVIEW Home Edition combined with LabVIEW MakerHub LINX (following this tutorial to get everything set up; it's for the WF32, but you can choose the uC32 instead) to get a lot more interaction (and more friendly GUI) to control the board. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, JColvin
  13. A customer on our website asked the following question: Good day. I'm using the uC32 board. I'd like to control my board through a GUI in my PC. However, i just learned that i cannot use the PIC32 USB Application Library because the chip on board has no USB peripheral, instead an FT232R IC serves as interface between the USB the UART Peripheral. Is there an easier way of communicating with the PC?Thank you very much. The response is below.
  14. Hello, The software for the Analog Discovery 2, WaveForms 2015, is Windows, Mac, and Linux compatible. You can view more of the OS details on the Waveforms Resource Center. So, you likely will need Windows installed on your tablet (as opposed to Android) to get Waveforms running. I don't know how the user interface on a tablet compares to that of the desktop version. The housing on the AD2 is 8.2 cm long (and wide) at the corners and is 8 cm long (and wide) in the middle. You can remove the housing and take advantage of the 6 mounting holes in the PCB. The PCB itself is is 7.5 cm long on both sides. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, JColvin
  15. A customer on the website asked the following question: I'm looking at purchasing the Analog Discovery 2 USB Oscilloscope, and have a couple of questions:What are the software OS requirements, I want to display this on a tablet and I think it will require windows?What are the physical dimensions and are there any mounting holes to mount on a piece of metal? The response is below.
  16. Hello, All MATLAB support for the Analog Discovery is created and maintained by MathWorks (link to the Mathworks page on the Analog Discovery), so Digilent only able to offer very limited support for the MATLAB functionality. That being said, I think what you would want to find out (from MathWorks) is details on their Data Acquisition Toolbox which is used to interface with the Analog Discovery. I know the Analog Discovery itself is capable of both generating an analog signal and measuring an analog signal simultaneously, but I do not know if Matlab supports this. Similarly, I do not know if you could create an analog signal out of a lookup table from the MathWorks DAQ package. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, JColvin
  17. A customer on our website asked the following question: Hello, I'm interestet in "Analog Discovery 100MSPS USB Oscilloscope & Logic Analyzer" to use in combination with matlab. I have 2 questions:1) Is it possible to generate an analog signal and record an analog signal at the same time (out of matlab) with this device?2) Can i design the analog signal completly free (for example out of an lookup table)?Thanks. The response is below.
  18. Hello, I would recommend checking out the troubleshooting steps listed in the initial post on this thread. If none of those work, please post back here so that we can direct you further. Thanks, JColvin
  19. A customer asked the following question on our website: We have an "Electronics Explorer" that will not power up. Do you provide out of warranty bench repair and or replacement? Please advise.Thank You. The response is below.

    Adept DPTI support

    Updating that files are packaged up now but just need to be pushed live, hopefully will be completed today.
  21. Hi Mickyprog, What is the error you are getting? I tried the method described by majenko in both MPIDE and the Arduino IDE 1.6.9 with the chipKIT core and was successful in both cases in terms of compilation. Naturally though, you will not be able to view all of these printed statements on your computer screen through the serial monitor as only Serial is connected through the USB cable. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, JColvin
  22. Hi andreadarke, I have asked some of our applications engineers about this; they will get back to you here on the forum. Thanks, JColvin

    Adept DPTI support

    Hi nversluis, I am also still waiting on the SDK from the appropriate engineers... I believe the design has been validated, but needs to be appropriately packaged up into whatever file structure it needs. I'll definitely post back here when I learn that it has been made live. Thanks, JColvin
  24. Hi clau, I have asked some of our applications engineers about this; they will get back to you here on the Forum. Thanks, JColvin
  25. Hi Jay, The only project that i am aware for the PmodBT2 is one that was done for the Nexys 3. It is available at the bottom of the Nexys 3 Resource Center page under Demo Projects. Thanks, JColvin
