My Analog Discovery 2 was very sensitive to movement, with Waveforms reporting the connection lost at the slightest bump. Merely manipulating the flywire leads was enough to cause a disconnect. I determined that the plug on the USB cable that came with the AD2 was not able to seat completely into the AD2's USB jack. While looking through the top of the AD2's enclosure at the USB jack, I observed that the two metal "spring fingers" atop the USB plug were not inserting deeply enough into the jack to permit them to raise and latch into their corresponding holes in the top of the jack. After disassembling the AD2's enclosure, I used some (mechanical) files and an X-Acto knife to enlarge the enclosure's USB port hole so the entire USB plug can pass through (photo attached). With the enclosure assembled, the USB plug now seats completely into the AD2's USB jack. I can see that the two metal "spring fingers" advance into their intended positions and raise up into the jack's holes. Waveforms has yet to report a disconnect during my experiments with wiggling the USB cable.
Hi , I am trying to make an adapter board for ZYBO. The adapter board is used to interface a camera sensor module to the Pmod connector. Can anyone help me to get the PCB layout and Mechanical details for the ZYBO board.? Thanks in advance,
Thanks very much for providing the Atlys FPGA development system. My company has purchased several boardds for use in a proof of concept system. We have been having good luck with the platform and I have a few questions that pertain to using the Atlys in such a manner. 1) Are there 3D models or gerber files available for the Atlys PCB that we can import into our CAD system so as to design around the physical aspects of the Atlys board? 2) For future mass-produced systems we will create our own PCB with a Spartan 6 FPGA, DDR2, HDMI out, and USB components. As an addon to our question above, gerber files would also be helpful to us while laying out the DDR2 SDRAM portion of the design. Are gerbers or other CAD files available for use as a reference design for the printed circuit board? 3) Is there a PCB mount connector available that would mate with the VHDCI connector on the Atlys? We have a subsystem that would be best designed as a board that would mate directly to the Atlys via the VHDCI connector (bypassing any cabled solution). Thanks very much in advance for any help with these questions. Jon
