  1. Hi Alok, Unfortunately Digilent FPGA's are not yet compatible and supported on LabVIEW FPGA. Kaitlyn
  2. Hi Bahare, If you just want to view or edit these files you can open them with any text editor like notepad or notepad++. If you want to use these files in a design then you will need Xilinx ISE to open them. You can either add them to a new project or an existing project. Either way once you have the project open you can right click on the chip name and select "add sources" to add the files.

    Jonathan, I moved your question to a more appropriate section of the forums. As far as the book goes, the content as far as the background concepts and coding examples will all still apply, but there will be some changes with different boards. If the software has changed between boards then the screenshots and steps for software will be different. As well as that, you will have to use different UCF or XDC files specific to the board you use. To figure out what software to use with which board you can view this post. I hope this helps! Kaitlyn

  11. Hi embP, I'm so sorry your question got missed. I have escalated this question to support so it can be answered. Just know you haven't been forgotten. Kaitlyn
  12. Hi Pooja, I'm so sorry your question was missed, we are working on systems to make sure this doesn't happen in the future. You can program the Spartan 3E with Xilinx iMPACT. Also I would recommend you check out the Xilinx support page for the Spartan 3E. It contains a lot of reference designs, including an A/D reference design. Kaitlyn
  13. jfri, The Vivado voucher that comes with the Basys 3 for $10 is a node locked version. This means that you can only use it on one computer.
  14. Hi Chris, The voucher that comes with the Basys3 a node locked license, which means it cannot be used as floating. Kaitlyn
  15. Chris, I fixed this issue on the documentation wiki, and sent in a request for the official reference manual to be changed. Kaitlyn
  16. Chris, You are totally right, I have flagged that image as needing a fix, and am working on finding the source of that image. Thanks so much for finding that for us! For the time being you can reference the schematics or the master XDC file found on the wiki. Sorry for the confusion, we will get that fixed as soon as possible. Kaitlyn
  17. Leslie, If I understand correctly, you want to use the Nexys 4 or 3 USB port with PS2 signals. You can do this as is. If you go to the section of the reference manual for the Nexys 4 to the USB HID section you can see that the microcontroller emulates old style PS2 signals.
  18. Wisdom, Unfortunately there is no library or demo for the PmodMIC, I would recommended getting started at the PmodMIC resource center here. Kaitlyn
  19. Hi Gerhard, I'm not sure if you saw this or not, but since you mentioned wanted to use MPLAB I wanted to give you a heads up.
  20. A customer asked this question: I have newly kown about Digilent products. I am intended to buy PModMic to connect with Ardunio (and Raspberry) via SPI interface. However, there is no supported library for simplifying the initialization of the PmodGYRO and providing simple functions to read data of the sensor, which is much different from other products such as PModGYRO. As I would like to connect it with my Arduino (or Raspberry) board, it will be helpful to provide such library such that speed up my project. I have searched with great effort, but all in vain. So could you please give some he
  21. Hi again Tom, I was informed that at one point there was a pin out diagram and it at some point disappeared from the reference manual. I've found it and attached it here, and will add it back to the reference manual. Kaitlyn
  22. Jim, When you install ISE there is a step in installation that asks what features you want to install. One of those boxes will be cable drivers. I'm not exactly sure why, but sometimes that box is not automatically checked. I myself have fallen prey to forgetting to check that box. There are also a variety of factors that may have interfered with installation once that box was checked, anti-virus software, cables plugged into the USB ports, breaks in internet connection, possibly other unforeseen issues.

  23. Ricardo, In the Nexys 3 Master UCF file you need to un-comment the pins that are used in the demo. So if you are trying to use the Pmod connector labeled as JA, pins 0 through 7, you need to un-comment those lines. Then you need to make sure they are named (the part in the quotation marks) the same as in the PmodCLP.vhd file when you declare them as inputs and outputs. I haven't finished the guide yet but as I said I will post it when it is done. Hope this helps in the mean time. Kaitlyn
  24. Hi Tom, From what I understand, your biggest concern is not knowing what each of the pins can be used for. I am going to answer that with a process that can be followed for each pin of interest. Say for example, you want to use an IO pin. If you open up the UCF file, you'll see a section of IO ports. For this example I will choose PORTA<0>. In the same line as the NET name, you will find the pin name. Next open the schematics. If you search for P5 you will find pin P5 on the schematics. From pin P5 extends a wire which goes to PIO01. This is on sheet 3 of the schematics. Next go to
