  1. Hello Luc, Unfortunately, the Arduino Due is not a supported board for the library. There was some community support and I wrote the framework for the Adruino Due but never got my hands on one to confirm it working or not. As it sounds, it is currently not working. I will update the to do list to reflect that the library is currently not working with the Arduino Due. Best of luck, Marshall
  2. Hello Haruto, We do not have a Yocto build for the ZYBO yet. It is in the works but the release date is unknown. Marshall
  3. hey ks0ze, I talked to my supervisor and he said that he is escalating the issue. To the best of his knowledge the license that you paid for is exactly the same as the webpack license but locked to the ZYBO. I guess we pulled the license from the store some time ago but apparently after you bought your license. From James it sounds like we are offering RMAs for unused licenses now so if you haven't redeemed it then please contact our support email. Otherwise the issue is being brought up to the right people. Best, Marshall

    Cmod C2 dev kit

    Hey James, This can be a long and painful road but here are the requested resources. programmers: The IDE will be Xilinx ISE 14.7: VHDL resources
  5. Hello ks0ze, Sorry for the delay. Originally this license was supposed to grant you access to a lot of of IP cores and a couple features that weren't included in the standard Webpack license. Since then a lot of features and IP cores were added to the Webpack license diminishing its value. Last time I looked at the usefulness of this license the big value that you were getting was Chipscope. Since I have not kept up with what Xilinx has released under the Webpack license, I will contact Xilinx to confirm what features are included with that license and I will talk with our marketing depar

    ADC SPI Interface

    Hello Garrett, I am sorry but we cannot write code for every request that we get. I do know some excellent resources that I used when learning VHDL and Verilog. Here is a Digilent associated class that teaches basic digital logic and provides some Verilog examples: Here is a great general site for learning VHDL or Verilog (I used it a ton): If you prefer a book, here is one written by Digilent (I found it good and worth the money):
  7. Hi Frank, Unfortunately, we designed and produced the UDB board for Microchip and are not allowed to distribute the schematic. I am unaware of the reason why the schematic is closed source. You could try to contact Microchip to see if they will distribute the schematic but we cannot. I did dig through the schematic and found that the IO pins are all wired directly from the IC4 socket to the J6 header. The only reason why you should be seeing ground on those pins are because the PIC is pulling the pins to ground. To confirm this for yourself, you can measure the resistance between th
  8. Unfortunately, this is a topic that is outside of our capabilities. Please try to contact Xilinx over at their forum. Best of luck! Marshall
  9. Here is a project that Sam uploaded. The project that you are looking for is Mem_Loader. Best of Luck! Marshall
  10. The keypad-seven segment demo is strangely complex but the source code for it is fairly straightforward. I drew a quick block diagram to figure out what is happening. A simple explanation: 1. col_cnt is counting from 0b00 to 0b11 2. the decoder changes the number to an inverted bit location IE: 0b01 -> 1101 3. The decoded signal from 2 is passed to the keypad_decoder and out of the chip to the keypad itself. 4. The keypad_decode module analyzes the two incoming signals and produces the resulting value for the location of the button that was pressed. The valu
  11. that is a frustrating error for a simple solution. Glad you figured it out and thanks for posting back! Marshall
  12. I try to troubleshoot as much as I can in simulation since troubleshooting in hardware is slow and painful. It is a lot better using Chipscope, if you have a license. Here is a demo for simulating a custom IP core in Microblaze. It isn't exactly what you are trying to do but the steps on simulating a Microblaze project are there. In simulation you should be able to confirm the design and program. Most importantly, you want to see that the IIC lines are changing as expected with your design and program. Then move to tr
  13. Hello Phong, I was writing the prebuilt Linux demo and got pulled onto other projects. I'll get back to it but it may take a little time. One of the best starting points would be here: This guide will get you a GUI based Linux setup on the ZYBO. Best of Luck, Marshall
  14. Hello Jude, You have some challenging questions. J16 is a header so a secondary battery can keep the security section of the RAM active without the primary 12V source. To do this, R187 need to be removed otherwise the secondary battery will be powering a good chunk of the board and has a high chance of damaging some components. In this case the amount of power that will be used through VCCBATT_0 pin should be very small. I looked through the documentation but I could not find how much current will be pulled through VCCBATT_0 with or without a 12V source. I would suggest contact
  15. You bring up some valid points. I guess I just have gotten use to not having the instantiate templates and I primarily use Verilog so I didn't notice the VHDL issue. I didn't know that ISE was working in W10. is it the same fix a that allowed ISE to work in W8? I agree with Andrew. Use the SRAM to DDR component. It will save a lot of time. Best of Luck, Marshall
  16. I am CCing you on an email to our people for an RMA. I suspect the issue is bad firmware on the wifi module and we don't have a reliable way to reprogram the board in the field. Sorry about the turn around time but we found the issue. Marshall
  17. ok, let me see if I can find what the error or status means. What do you mean by "And I still don't check my wifi module on other SPI port"? As for, "I only understand that i need inboard programer and try to write wi-fi program using harmony" You are programming through the USB port which can talk to the PIC32 during boot up. So you do not need an external programmer unless you damage the bootloader on the PIC. You shouldn't need Harmony at all for this. Harmony is a different implementation and a different IDE.
  18. Hello Maikon, How big of an LED are you using? What is the voltage drop and current rating? It sounds like you are just pulling too much current through the pin and this is causing the line voltage to drop. I searched online really quick and found this calculator that might help you. I would suggest using a power FET or BJT to protect the FPGA if you are using something other than a small LED. Best of Luck, Marshall

    USB to SPI

    Hello Sai, If you want to verify the states and values inside the FPGA then you are asking about is ChipScope which is fairly expensive if you don't have a license. Plus you should be able to get most of the same output by printing through a serial port. Personally, I find ChipScope cumbersome, so I would suggest setting up a serial debugging solution. If you want to see the values outside of the FPGA then you can pin them to a Pmod header and use a logic analyzer to look at the data being sent over SPI. I usually use the Analog Discovery or the Electronics explorer board for a log
  20. Hello Anding, I would highly suggest moving to Vivado. It is a small jump but I found it to be a very similar workflow. I have never tried using the MIG in ISE. I'm sure it is possible but obviously isn't easy. On top of that, we have examples of using the MIG on the Nexys4DDR in Vivado. Best of Luck, Marshall
  21. I have found that too. Generally, for the WiFi libraries, I have stuck with WF32 and Wi-Fire for wifi projects because I feel like they are better supported in the libraries. Did you figure out your problem with the WifFi stuff? ~Marshall
  22. I have found that there are a lot of issues with the wifi libraries depending the version of the library and MPIDE. It can be a little bit of a nightmare. I just checked the latest ChipKIT core, to see if it works or not. The WifiScan ran perfectly on for me on the Wi-Fire. I suggest installing the latest Arduino IDE and install the chipKIT core. Instructions can be found here: Best of Luck, Marshall
  23. We don't have any mechanical diagrams but I grabbed a set of calipers and measured the board. Hope this helps. Marshall
  24. Hello miguel, I am not familiar with Busybox I bet it isn't any different than a standard linux networking. Have you tried pinging your router or something on your network? If you can ping a local network device then all you should have to do is set a nameserver in the /etc/resolv.conf file. It should be something like this: "sudo nano /etc/resolve.conf" add "nameserver" and "nameserver" then reboot or restarting the networking service should fix it. Best of luck! Marshall
