  1. Hello all, I bought the nexys 4 DDR, and since I am new I started with the basic tutorial blinky. Everything goes well until I get to step 8. "Synthesis, Implementation, and Bitstream Generation" The Synthesis ran successfully, and where it fails is at the bitstream generation. Since the Synthesis was completed I am assuming is not the verilog code, and is just some setting that I need to complete. The log gives the following error: ERROR: [DRC NSTD-1] Unspecified I/O Standard: 2 out of 2 logical ports use I/O standard (IOSTANDARD) value 'DEFAULT', instead of a user assigned spe
  2. Hi, I really like the Nexys series boards, I've a Nexys2, a Nexys3 and a Nexys4 board. Artix-7 FPFAs a fine, but Kintex-7 are about a factor two faster. So I'd love to have an affordable Kintex-7 based board. There are now several Nexys variants. but why not a Nexys4 K7 with a XC7K70T or even XC7K160T. When I look at the FPGA cost a see XC7A100T-1CSG324C ~ $110 XC7K70T-1FBG484C ~ $120 XC7K160T-1FBG484C ~ $220 so a XC7K70T should be possible at a price tag still comparable to the current Nexys4 A7. Maybe somebody from Digilen
  3. I tried the new Instant SoC from FPGA Cores on my Nexys 4 DDR (Nexys A7) board. Instant SoC is a C++ compiler that compiles C++ directly to a RISC-V processor and peripherals. The result is one vhdl file that I synthesized with Vivado. The only file I needed to add was the constraints file to map the signals to pins. The code implements a simple inclinometer. This is a description of what the code does: Sleeps 100 ms Read accelerations from the on board accelerometer using SPI Calculates angles using floating point math (atan, sqrt) Removes the zero offset that is res
  4. Hey guys, I want to implement a ring oscillator on my Nexys 4. Below is an image of the structure I want to implement and the code is also attached: Is it possible to just synthesize this and read the output of the counter or simply attach the output of the CUT to an oscilloscope and read the frequency? Thanks, Shahin
  5. good day to all, my question is this: I am using the XADC of the Nexys 4 DDR, using the single channel mode, I want to sample at 1000 KSPS but using the IP CORE XADC Wizard it tells me that with these features the current conversion rate decreases to 961540 KSPS, I have searched the documentation of the XADC but I can not find a concrete answer to why this happens. If someone could help me, I would appreciate it.
  6. I am currently using nexys 4, I want to input console inputs to my VHDL design. I know that ISE uses a .ucf file where the inputs and outputs of the card are assigned, however my interest is not to use the inputs provided by the card and I do not know how to assign these inputs sent from an application, I would thank anyone who can help.
  7. Hi, I'm new to this. I want to know how to describe in VHDL the operation of the ADC of the Nexys 4 to view it in LEDs. Any suggestion?
  8. We use Nexys 4 DDR boards for testing our platform. While with most of the Windows host PCs there are no issues, with one of our clients' when the board is plugged in (using the supplied micro USB cable) it shows up as two COM ports under Windows's Device Manager. We suspect this is behind that we can't properly run Xilinx SDK programs on the board, the debugger looses the connection. Is it normal that the board shows up as two COM ports? (When the board is de-attached the ports disappear, so both are surely the single board.) If yes, can this cause issues? If now, how can we begin

    Vivado filter project

    Hello, I'm new in FPGA and I'm trying to realize a filter using the FPGA Nexys 4 on Simulink. I have already done the Simulink circuit and export it to the Vivado Design sout as a project. Here I choose the right FPGA but i have problem with I/O Ports planning. My output of this project will be a filter which will realize the filtration of biological signal (ECG) which i will bring on JXAD input port on FPGA. Can somebody please help me with realization in Vivado and tell me, which output can be the best after the filtration? Your help means very much to me...
  10. I have a Digilent Nexys 4 board with me, and a medical device that provides streaming data via USB slave out, and I understand that my board has a USB HID, but it is connected to a PIC uC which converts it to PS/2 signal for me to use it. I was trying to implement a PS/2 controller to read this but then I came across this post on your forums where a Digilent technician said that video cameras are not supported, only mice and keyboards are. So I'd like to know how to connect a non mouse, non keyboard USB device to my board. This isn't an easy thing to Google so apologies if the answer was
  11. Hi, I have developed a simple verilog program that reads a matrix from a text file, loads it into BRAM, performs some computation and then store the output back into BRAM. I have simulated the program and it works as expected. Now I want to test it on the FPGA, but I am not sure how to do that. 1- If I continue to use BRAM, how can I view the content of the BRAM after the execution is over to verify the output? 2- If I decided to use USB flash memory to read the matrix and write the result, how do I specify the names of the input/output files? There are a lot of resources that e
  12. Just got a Nexys 4 DDR board for a class and the second I plugged it in, the busy light came on and it hasn't gone off yet and I get a message in Vivado when trying to connect it to the hw_server saying it may be locked by another hw_server?
  13. Hello!I am an electrical engineering student and I use a Digilent AC701 board, for my projects. I have similar problem as cclaunch had(topic:Fmc Carrier S6 Loading Config File To Flash ). I want to use a free and easy solution to burn my config program to the SPI Flash but I can't do it with the Adept. I want to do automatic boot from the flash anyhow. Is there any new solution for this problem(a don't want to use impact)? Is it possible that the Adept will support the SPI Flash programming?I thank you in advence for your reply.
  14. Hi I bought a Nexys 4 mainly due to the 8 digit and the amount of the resources the FPGA had in the Nexys 4 versus the Basys3. I did not read until later that a locked version of Vivado is with the Basys3. I am a novice at this technology. Does the locked version of Vivado that only works with Basys3 have the logic analyzer with it or the serial IO analyzer with it? What are the main differences between locked version and the downloaded webpack i have now? If it does have these tools in it, then these are tools that at least give me a better chance of success on a smaller version of my pr
  15. Clint from WSU has posted some projects based on Vivado. User can use Basys 3 or Nexys 4 and develop the project in Vivado.
  16. Hi everyone, I have a Nexys4 board and I am trying to generate a simple program in VHDL using Vivado 2014.4 Webpack. When I get to the Generate Bitstream phase I get the following warning: ----------------------------- WARNING: [Drc 23-20] Rule violation (CFGBVS-1) Missing CFGBVS and CONFIG_VOLTAGE Design Properties - Neither the CFGBVS nor CONFIG_VOLTAGE voltage property is set in the current_design. Configuration bank voltage select (CFGBVS) must be set to VCCO or GND, and CONFIG_VOLTAGE must be set to the correct configuration voltage, in order to determine the I/O voltage support
  17. Hi, I've been working for a while now to create a program which generates a specific signal. I think I may have succeeded but I don't know how to verify that. I was hoping that there would be a way to use the Diligent Adept software or Xilinx ISE to see what my board is outputting. Hardware/software; Im using A nexys 4 board, ISE 14.7, and adept 2. The code I have was generated by Matlab's hdl coder and the out puts are two 10-bit signals. Thanks.
  18. A customer asked if the Nexys 4 kit includes the micro USB cable to program the board. Here is my answer: The Nexys 4 includes the FPGA development board and the USB A to micro B cable in the DVD case. See the picture below.

    PMOD as GPIO

    Hello, I'm currently using a Nexys 4 board and I would like to serially output and receive data. I was wondering if this could be done through a PMOD port? If so, how? Inside of my HDL design (I'm using Vivado 2014.2 and my HDL is in verilog) I'm asserting various PMOD ports yet whenever I try to measure the outputs I got nothing. My HDL looks something like this:assign JC1 = 1, JC2 = 0; Both JC1 and JC2 measure to 0. I've also tried the alternative names listed in the schematics (K2 and E7) as well as other PMOD interfaces. If I can't use the PMOD ports in this fashion, I was hopin
