    Hi , Am I need to use Microblaze processor with Pmod ? In fact I read that in this link : Is there any way simpler to use Pmod IP ? Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi all, I've built with the Nexyx4 DDR board a system running Linux. In my running HW design, I've added the onboard temperature sensor of the board and the PMOD A connector to connect a I2C TMP3 temperature sensor. The HW interface for the onboard temperature sensor is the AXI IIC interface. For the TMP3 sensor with the Digilent's vivado library (as explained in:, it's the AXI LITE IIC interface. With the Linux I2C tools, I see the onboard sensor: nexys4ddr:/# uname -r 4.14.0-00493-gb6
  4. Hi, I want to connect Pmod to Arduino Uno. From Arduino pins we get 5V so does this refer only to power supply (which we have on Arduino board) or for others pins too? Is it safe to connect it directly to Arduino or I have to use voltage dividerfor other pins? Thank you.
  5. Hi, I have started using PMOD BLE recently and I can make a connection in between BLE and PC using a terminal (with Nexys4DDR making a direct connection in between). However, when I write a VHDL code, describing what I made on the terminal one by one, the BLE device stucks at rebooting. For both applications I use the following sequence that is described in "RN4871_user_guide.pdf" page 59 : - Send $$$ - Wait a second - Send SS,40<CR> (this is to select UART Transparent feature only) - Wait a second - Send R,1<CR> - Wait a second -
  6. Hello, I've been having a lot of fun with the VGA Pmod. I thought other forum members might appreciate a couple of tutorials I've produced with it. Part 1: Intro to VGA and basic animation: Part 2: Bitmap display using your own image: Both are written in pure Verilog, so it's (hopefully) easy to understand what's going on and adapt for your own projects. Feedback welcome, Will
  7. Hello everyone I am trying to interface the Pmod Gyroscope with myRio with the code provided in the myRio Project Essentials Guide. I have made connections as per the diagram in the guide and there is no problem with it. When I run the VI, when the sensor is stationary the value of x displacement should be zero and not change but it is incrementing with time even when I am not moving the sensor. You can check the problem in the YouTube link I have shared bellow. There is no problem with the hardware since I have tried the same program with other gyroscope of same IC. The program file

    Pmod AD5

    Hello, I am also using the PMOD AD5 to get the values of two sensor one is voltage and another is temperature , but the problem is i wanted to get the value of the only voltage first then only temperature, what i did is i just added a function of the temperature to it with the same voltage code that is given in the example of the AD5 driver, i change the configuration register values to byte[1]=0x04 byte[2]=0x03 byte[3]=0x18 so that i can have the enable the 2 single channels and the value be in uni polar by doing this i am getting the values voltage is: 2.5v (
  9. Hello, I am trying to display text on an image using the libraries provided . I am able to load the image and print text separately but when an image is loaded and i try to display text on it, it does not seem to print. How can i print text on a image loaded from sd card present in Pmod MTDS. With Regards, Ajs
  10. Hello , I am using the Pmod AD5 and Pmod MTDS on the Zedboard I am connecting the pmod AD5 with a simple POT and giving different values it. From the demo example in the mtds ip I got to know that display images are store in the file with .bmp in SD card then invoked when needed My problem is i have nearly 500 values in to be displayed so , my question Is there any way to dynamically generate the .bmp file to the MTDS and display it when we give the different values from the AD5 ? Regards Akshay

    Pmod MTDS

    Hello am new to this to and this is bit confusing. Am working with Pmod MTDS and trying to use Pmod MTDS IP in zedboard board. I have used the library and board files as stated by Digilent. Problem is when i use MTDS in spi interface mode and i get only 4 pins in IO planing list and reset pin (pin 8 in Pmod MTDS device) is missing. Can anyone tell me how to get that reset pin or am i doing it worng? 2nd question is what data has to be written to the mtds to display it in device? I mean if i need to display number " 1 " then what am i supposed to send to MTDS ip? And last quest
  12. We are suppose to add a library from here: and add it to the projects IP repository list to be able to add the block in the IP Integrator. I have checked all the releases and i cant find the Pmod NIC100 anywhere, i think its called PmodNIC, but correct me if am wrong because i haven't seen it anywhere anyway. Until i find this IP, the Pmod is just another paperweight on my desk along with my stalled project, Please help. I am using the Arty A7: Artix-7 FPGA Development Board.
  13. Hello, I am unclear on whether the PmodIA works with Arduino. If I get the digilent arduino core will I be good to go, or do I need a digilent board to use it? Also, is it possible to modify the pmodia to use it on lower frequencys/impedance so it could be used for batteries? Thank you!
  14. Hello, I have purchased a PMOD ESP32 for evaluation with Renesas Synergy. I have installed the required resources from the renesas synergy pmod esp32 application note. I also have the sample project up and running on the target demo board (PK-S5D9). I am communicating with the module through Tera Term and USB CDC. I am able to communicate with the module, and the module responds to the "get_mac" command: The issue I am having is that the command line options for "scan" and "connect" do not work. The module seems to be hang, and nothing is displayed
  15. Hello, I'm trying to configure my Basys 3 board to control a DC motor through the Pmod connector with an HB5 within Vivado. I've followed all steps in the Pmod IP tutorial but I'm stuck at 3.3. I'm not sure which specific pmod ip block I should use or how exactly to connect it. I couldn't find one corresponding to the hb5. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Additional points: I don't need clocks or interrupts fed to the pmod I'm simply trying to control the operation (on/off) of the motor through one of the on-board switches. Thanks, gd
  16. Howdy. I have what I think is a fairly basic question: Which (non-FPGA) processor boards support Pmod modules? Is there any chance to see a table that shows each of the current ARM and PIC32 processor boards down a left-hand column and then the quantity of each of the Pmod ports (of each different configuration) on the middle of the chart? Thanks
  17. Hello, I've posted the next part in my FPGA graphics series using the Arty + VGA Pmod or Basys 3. It shows you how to make use of double buffering to animate sprites using simple Verilog. Feedback very welcome, Will PS. I'll add the source to GitHub shortly.
  18. Hello, I am using Arty-Z7-10 board with 3 Pmods (NAV, GPS and RTCC), while there are only 2 JTAG ports available on the board. So, I decided to buy one of these 2*6-pin JTAG splitter cables and divide one of my JTAG ports between PmodGPS and PmodRTCC (since both of them need only one row of JTAG). Now, I am trying to make a block design and connect both of them to one JTAG, but it does not seem to be feasible. When I connect the first Pmod to the JTAG port, it occupies the whole port and it does not allow me to add another Pmod to it. Is this something I have to do in Verilog, and modify
  19. I am using a pmod GPS with a zybo z7-10 board. However, even after running the sample code for the GPS, nothing is being printed on the serial monitor. I'm not entirely sure whether I have connected the pmod right, since there are 6 pins on the GPS but 12 pins on the pmod port. Nowhere has anyone mentioned whether one should connect the pmod GPS on the top six pins or the bottom six pins. Am I doing something wrong here or is there some other problem? I have also attached a picture of my block diagram for reference.
  20. Hello all, I have a question pertaining to my ZedBoard. I'm running Linux on the PS using the built in SD card slot. I'm simultaneously building an isolated system in the PL, currently consisting of a Microblaze running a baremetal application. Now I'd like to run Python in the PL without touching the PS setup. Could I use the SD card Pmod to persist Linux to run on the Microblaze? I know I can't touch the existing SPI since it belongs to the PS, and I'd also like plenty of storage. Thank you for your time
  21. Hello I bought one PmodAD5, and tried to change its output data rate. I know sample rate can be changed by mode register value;However, how can i make changes to highest value(4.8kHz) of mode register in code. Thanks.
  22. Dear all, I'm trying to integrate Pmod GPS on my Xilinx ZCU102 platform with a Linux OS. To do so, I'm using the resources available in Digilentinc's vivado-library zip (PmodGPS_v1_1 IP + software drivers using xuartns550). I managed to make it work correctly in polling mode (calling GPS_getData func) with a clock freq of 49.995 MHz and a baudrate of 9600 symbols/s. Nonetheless, when I try to increase the baudrate to 115200, the NMEA messages in the ->recv buffer get corrupted. For instance, some messages are not correctly formatted because one comma has been flipped to anot
  23. I recently started working on the zybo z7-10 board. I have two pmods - the PmodGPS and the PmodCON3. Both of these pmods have 6 pins each and I want to connect both of these pmods to the same port on the fpga. However, I could not connect the PmodGPIO_0 and the PmodGPS_0 blocks to the same port in my Block Design in Vivado. Is there any way to do this?
  24. Hello everyone,I bought PMODDA1, but I don't know how to set PMODDA1 to make two DAC work at the same time in SDK and output 4 channels, and demo on GitHub can only output two channels,I would be very grateful.
  25. I need a second ethernet port on my Nexys4ddr board, so I got the PMODNIC100 ethernet connector. To get started, I was trying to follow the Getting Started with Digilent Pmod IPs Tutorial, but since I do not find any IP core for PMODNIC100 in Vivado 2015.4, I do not know how to proceed. Can you please guide me regarding how to send and receive data through the PMOD NIC100 ethernet connector?
