Hey there I'm thinking about purchasing a Zybo or Zedboard to Implement a SDR application. I'm in electronics engineering student with microcontroller history but brand new to FPGAs. I have a few questions about the vivado license, ISE vs Vivado for DSP applications. What exactly is it that the licence that Digilent sells offer that the webPack dosent? I have read here on the forums about some discrepancy between the Vado licenses and forgot it updates in this regard. Is the CihipScope offered in the wet pack now? I may later decide to purchase the SDR software package offered by AVNET, or at least individually accumulate those licenses as my budget allows. So how dose the webpack version limit my ability to integrate with the software elements(currently unable to find the said software package) used for SDR & DSP development? What are the limitations of the Pmod interface if I were to go with the Zybo and later try to coonect to a FMC interposer/Analog Devices ACD boards? Im reading the zybo book but any links to more learning resources would be greatly appreciated. I'm ready to pull the trigger on a purchase today as soon as I get these questions answered. Looked high and low for a phone number
I am working on a solution to power the ZedBoard's BBRAM with a battery when the 12V supply is unavailable. Looking at page 28 of the HW UG, I only see VCCAUX which leads me to believe that the battery is powered by VCCAUX when the board is plugged in and switched on. On sheet 10 of the schematics I see VCCAUX and VCCBATT_0 both supplying powering the 1.8V rail. What I want to know is the following: If I connect a battery to BBRAM, will power be drawn from the battery at all times or only when the 12V supply is switched off? Please let me know if you need any more information to answer this question. Thank you!
Hello. I am interested in purchasing the electronics explorer board, however after a not-so-quick google about the board I was unable to find any information about the protection the board offers. I am interested in knowing whether the board has any protection against accidental short-circuits, particularly the waveform generator since I read that waveform generators are particularly succeptible to getting damaged when short circuited, but also the rest of the components of the board. Thanks in advance I´ll be waiting for your answers
