  1. Dear vwone, We're happy to hear you got a hold of LabVIEW and a WF32. All of our boards are on our reference page. Here you can look at the reference manual, the schematic, tutorials, and even sample projects. The link to the WF32 page is here. If you're looking for more info about labview you can go check out the LabVIEW MakerHub. This is a community just like our forums here but it focuses on LabVIEW. They will have more info about LabVIEW and can help you get started with programming your board. I hope this helps! Welcome to the Community Best Regards, Bobby
  2. Dear ab, Could it be possible to see the circuit that you wired up? it would give us a better view and may help us understand what could be wrong. I did go through and make a quick circuit and I was also getting about 4.8 V. I will read through some of the reference manual to see if there is a reason for this. if you could post a picture of your set up that would be fantastic. Thanks, Bobby
  3. Dear Anding, I have escalated your question to our APS team who will be able to answer your question. They will answer your question as soon as they can. Best Regards Bobby
  4. Dear Anding, That is a very strange case for pin changing so I went and checked the schematics. I found the two that in the two schematics for the Nexys4 and the Nexys4 DDR that the pins D10 and C11 have been flipped when connecting to the RXD1/Mode1 and RXD0/MODE0. The reason behind this is unclear to me but i'm glad you asked so that way in the future we can know that this isn't a typo. Thanks so much for pointing it out. I would have just assumed it was a typo. Best Regards, Bobby

    PMOD connector spacing

    Dear JasonT The spacing between the PMOD headers is about 0.3 inches. I hope that helps. Best Regard, Bobby
  6. Dear adecold, I looked into that DC motor and it turns out the product title on the webpage is wrong. The 1:19 DC motor voltage is 12 V and the datasheet on that web page is correct also. Sorry about that confusion I'll be sure to get it fixed. Best Regards, Bobby
  7. Dear Christopher, In this video the instructor just skipped some steps to get to an answer faster. The instructor used a voltage divider equation to get the 1/3 and 2/3 values that he used. I have provided a solution of how he found the 1/3 value of his first superposition step. I just used a simple circuit analysis to solve for this to prove that the value of 1/3 of the source voltage makes sense. If you look below you can see my calculations for the first part. I will leave the second part of the superposition problem for you to solve. I hope this helped. If you have any more questions feel
  8. Dear Vardhan, A metal casing would actually help reduce any em fields that happen to be enacting on the Analog Discovery. The metal casing would be used as a sort of Faraday cage around the system. The closer a Faraday cage is to the unit it is shielding the more effective it will be. Since this product is mostly a student tool there seemed to be no need to add a higher shielding unit to the device. You could still keep the plastic casing a then put a smaller metal casing on the inside. The only problem with making a metal casing is that it would make the Analog Discovery pricier. We try to ma
  9. Dear Vardhan, You definitely could measure 300 volts using a homemade voltage divider. I would recommend against doing it until you are sure you know what you are doing. There are a couple things you will have to consider before making the decision to use a voltage divider. Whether your system is running DC or AC will help you determine what components you will need. You'll need to be cautious of what resistors and other components you use. If you use smaller resistors you will be getting a very large power out put which could fry your set up. There are a lot of different ways to measure high
  10. Dear Rob, I got the chipKIT Pro MX7 to try and recreate your problem. Unfortunately/fortunately I was not able to recreate your problem. I do have a question as to what Ethernet Demo you are doing? There are multiple multiple demos and then from that I might be able to pinpoint the issue. Also I would go through and do a check on some the little things. Is your sketchbook location in your preferences mapped to the right location? Did you unzip the folders into the libraries folder where the sketchbook location is? I know this seems little and small issues but I have had countless of issues inv
  11. Welcome Princeton/Richard, I hope you like the ARTY board and I hope yo do some very cool things with it. If you do do something with it and want to show us or other people feel free to talk about it in the Project Vault section of the forums. I would very much like to see the software radio you are talking about. Maybe you can involve the ARTY in a project for a certain musical about muppets, haha I hope you have fun with your new board. Happy birthday. ~Bobby

    hirose fx2

    Dear vport, The VGA port on the nexys 2 is a female connector. You would male connector but as for type I am not sure. Since we do not sell the Hirose FX2 I will not be able to help as much as you would probably like. If you have any questions about the Nexys 2 our team will be able to help you more with that. Best Regards, Bobby
  13. Dear mb7270, I had to do some research about this software. This is a NI academic product so I do not have all the information I would like to have to answer this question. What I have found may be able to answer. Looking at the full version of Multisim software on NIs website I have found that when you purchase that program you will get a product license which you would input into an account on NI. From there you would be able to down the program and then use your account license to be able to use that program. It appears you would be able to upgrade to a new computer and use that license on
  14. Hi Ciro, The dimension of the Nexys 4 board goes as follows: The longest side of the board is 12.2 cm while the shorter side is 10.9 cm. The height of the board (from the pegs to the top of the ethernet port) is 2 cm. As for the part number of the external power jack we can not disclose this information. I'm sure you could find a similar jack at a hardware store or even online. I hope this information helps. Best Regards, Bobby
