What’s a good way to Learn? By visiting the Learn site!
One of the most important things in school is being able to find the resources you need to be successful. Digilent can help you find those tools!
Pushbuttons are an inherent source of problems inside of sensitive circuits. Ideally, we like to think that when a button is pressed it is either “pressed” or “not pressed” without any sort of funny business. Unfortunately, as pushbuttons are a mechanical component, a lack of funny business simply isn’t going to be the case.
Have you recently gotten your hands on Digilent’s Autorange Digital Multimeter (DMM)? Are you just aching to start using it? Digilent’s Learn site has a couple of projects to get you started!
A couple of weeks ago, we talked about using chipKIT Pro and synchronous communication in our Digilent Learn module that covers Richard Wall’s material (specifically, using an I2C protocol to communicate with the EEPROM). Today, we’re going to get into the tenth project in this series using the chipKIT Pro MX7.
Last week, we talked about using chipKIT Pro and asynchronous communication in our Digilent Learn module that covers Richard Wall’s material. Today, we’re going to get into the ninth project in this series using the chipKIT Pro MX7.
We’re very excited to announce that soon we’ll have a couple of cool new bundles! If you look in the coming soon category on our website, you can see we have a couple of different products that have been grouped together in convenient bundles.
Last week, we introduced Richard Wall, who has done some fantastic work on our Learn modules. Today I’d like to introduce the first project in his module (the one to do with advanced microcontrollers using the chipKIT Pro MX7).
Howdy! I’m the latest addition to the Digilent family, and I’m happy to make your acquaintance! As the newest member, my first task was to act as a guinea pig to test out our new Learn.Digilentinc webpage. After all, I was new to chipKIT, but I’m no fresh-faced newb (well… not much of a newb), I know my way around a microcontroller and this is hardly my first time blinking an LED, but I’m not a hardcore programmer or electrical engineer either, which was exactly what the Learn.Digilentinc website was created for. So I was asked to go through Digilent’s Learn site to familiarize myself with their hardware, and provide a little outside perspective on the tutorials. The following is a review of my experience with our Learn site, tutorials, and what sort of difficulties folks new to microcontrollers might have while learning the ropes on our hardware.
The Logic Analyzer instrument in WaveForms can be used to easily decode Manchester encoding signals. The following guide presents what Manchester encoding is, what are its advantages over unencoded digital …
Though oscilloscopes are most known for viewing and diagnosing analog signals, there are some cases where critical characteristics of digital signals can only be viewed on an oscilloscope. When designing …
Today we will go over a brief overview on FPGAs!
When looking at the oscilloscope feature of a multi-instrument device or when comparing two benchtop oscilloscopes, the first specifications that we look at are the bandwidth and sample rate. While these …
