    Connect HDMI to ZedBoard

    Hi Rohit, Unless the creator of that code happens to find this thread on the Digilent forum, there will likely be limited support in terms of using the 3rd party project code. Otherwise, what do you mean by you cannot download the clean project? Does Vivado state that the project is corrupted in some way or something else? Which sort of connections on the ZedBoard are you referring to? By software do you mean Vivado, or the code posted on the hamsterworks website? Thanks, JColvin

    Xwin Linux on zybo

    I agree that would be pretty cool, but at least on the Digilent end, there isn't any plans to offer support for that distribution. Thanks, JColvin
  3. Hi btb4198, The PmodNIC100 that Dan mentioned uses a ENC424J600 from Microchip, which is similar to the part that you are attempting to utilize, but the only support we have available for the PmodNIC100 uses Microchip's TCP/IP stack which is (at least for me) overwhelming to use. This microchip thread describes how you would add support for new hardware in order to use their TCP/IP stack, but it is definitely tailored towards using MPLAB or Harmony, both of which Digilent does not actively support. Digilent (well, one of the engineers at Digilent) has created an IP stack independent

  5. Hi parselmaster, In terms of getting the trigger option to work a little better, it looks like you are attempting to capture the dip that occurs. I would recommend changing "Auto" in the dropdown menu to "Normal". This will make WaveForms only start acquiring data when the trigger event occurs (auto has WaveForms 2015 wait for a couple of seconds for the event and then start acquisition anyway). I would also change the time base on the right hand side of the screen to a closer value of how long you might expect the event to occur, so maybe 2 or 5 ms/Div. You can then also set the level dr
  6. Hi @Tiny, I have moved your question to a more appropriate section of the forum. I would personally recommend checking out this other thread on our forum here where another user is also hoping to use the Zybo with a OV7670 camera, to see if that helps. I don't believe Digilent as a project that uses that camera, but I'll ask some of our applications engineers about the errors you're getting to see if they are able to offer some feedback. Thanks, JColvin

  9. 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.

  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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 up

  18. 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 w

  21. 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).

  24. 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
  25. 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 d
