  1. Hello, I have asked some of our applications engineers about this; they will get back to you here on the forum. Thanks, JColvin
  2. A customer on our website asked the following question: We plan to assemble: jtag smt2 nc direct to PCB's. Need to know if DI water jet washing is acceptable for processing. Are these produced with water soluble flux or no clean flux? The response is below.
  3. Hi Dan, I have asked some of our applications engineers to see what the reasoning is for the listed 50 MHz spec; they will get back to you here on the forum. Thanks, JColvin
  4. Hello JayWeeks, I have asked some of our applications engineers about this; they will get back to you here on the Forum. Thanks, JColvin
  5. Hello, I have asked some of our applications engineers to see if they can update the board files for the embedded OLED. They'll get back to you here on the forum when it's ready. Thanks, JColvin
  6. Hello, I presume when you say "that nothing happens when you I plug in the board" that no LEDs on the board light up and the demo that is pre-loaded onto the Basys 3 are working. If this is not the case and the LEDs are lighting up, I recommend checking out this other thread on our forum here: https://forum.digilentinc.com/topic/767-drivers-needed-for-basys3/. But since I presume that nothing is operating for you, I have asked some of our applications about this; they will get back to you here on the forum. Thanks, JColvin
  7. A customer on our website asked the following question: Hi,I've purchased a basys 3 board from your store, but the board isn't recognized by the computer. I've installed the Adept software and the Vivado. Neither recognizes the board. Nothing happens when I plug the board.I would like to know if I have to install any driver or anything like that.Thank you The response is below.
  8. Hello, The voucher is only good for Xilinx's Vivado Design Suite, not ISE. However, the license is permanent; once you load/activate the license you will not need to redeem or re-purchase the license. And yes, you are correct that during the update period, you are able to to upgrade to the latest edition of Vivado for as long as you want. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, JColvin
  9. A customer on our website asked the following question: Hi, I am interested in purchasing the new Genesys2 board to replace my older Genesys board. I am a bit concerned about the lack of support for the kintex7 board in Webpack, since it made using the original Genesys very easy on any computer. My question is about the Voucher included for a node-locked, device-locked licence of Vivado Design edition. I would like to know 3 things : 1. Is the voucher good for ISE also? 2. Is the licence permanent? 3. For how long are updates supported? Am I correct in assuming that after the supported update period, I can continue to use the last version released during that period for as long as I want? Thank you for your help, Simon The response is below.

    Zedboard USB port broken

    A customer on our website asked the following question: I purchased a Zedboard on 10/1/2015. The USB port was always a bit loose but so long as I propped up the cable it worked fine. However last week the stand I had the USB cable on fell over and the entire connector tore off. I'm hoping my $500 hasn't been wasted and there's some other way to attach a keyboard and mouse but I can't find any. And by the way you really need to do something about the extremely fragile Micro USB connectors. They're so delicate the boards are bound to fall apart in a very short time. I'm quite disappointed with the build quality of this board. Please let me know if there's anyway I can get past this problem. Otherwise I'll just buy another board from a vendor with a more sturdy product. The response is below.

  14. Agreed. Even having worked with Digilent for a little over two years now there were a number of things that I hadn't known before. Like nearly going belly up on a printer purchase. I guess I'm curious to know what kind of company you imagined Digilent started out as from a customer perspective (if you don't mind sharing).

  16. A customer on our website asked the following question: Hi,Would it be possible for you to send me the CE Mark certificates for your Zedboard?Kind Regards, The response is below.
  17. Hello, I don't personally know the answer to your questions, but I have placed this question in the appropriate section of the forum where the engineer best suited to answer your question can see it. Thanks, JColvin
  18. A customer asked the following question on our website: To Whom It May Concern,I ordered a Analog Discovery 100MSPS USB Oscilloscope & Logic Analyzer as well as a parts kit earlier in the year for school use at the University of Maryland. After about two months of use (once a week, well taken care of, always stored in box after use), I began experiencing issues with the connection to the computer. My computer will not recognize the Analog Discovery anymore unless I hold the cable connection near the Analog Discovery at a certain angle, which is very inconvenient and makes the device difficult to use. It is not an issue with the cable, but the Analog Discovery connection itself. Please recommend what actions I should take next in order to have a functioning Analog Discovery by next class (approximately 2 months.) Thank you for your time, The response is below.

  20. A customer on our website asked the following question: Hello, I think your product, Analog Discovery 2, looks really great. I hope it will work out for my needs! But I have a few questions first.I'd like to generate single externally triggerable voltage pulses between -2 and +2 Volts down to 50 ns or less. You say the AWG operates at 100MS/s, so does this mean at every 10 ns, the volateg output can change? Could I generate a 10 ns pulse then?I'd like to also read an analog voltage during and a bit after the generated pulse. Can I coordinate those two events with an external trigger?I'd like to write my own program using your SDK to generate the pulse and read an analog voltage during the pulse. Would that be technically possible?Thank you so much in advance! The response is below.
  21. Hello, As a note for the PmodLVLSHFT that Dan linked to, it should be of note that the module only supports voltages between 1.8V and 5.5V for conversion. So, I guess in principle you could shift the logic level from 3.3V down to 1.8 V and then nicely use a voltage divider to get the 1.8V down to 900 mV, but as Dan mentions that route can have some issues, especially if your board is sensitive to received voltages. I guess I'll also clarify that the Nexys 4 DDR does have 3.3V as the output for all of it's general purpose I/O pins. Thanks, JColvin
  22. Hello, I have asked some of our applications engineers about this since I am personally unfamiliar with doing anything like that. Thanks, JColvin
  23. 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.
  24. 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
  25. 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.
