We hope you had a great weekend, even though we’re sad it’s over! Want to end those Monday blues and work on a fun FPGA project? Take a leaf out of Instructable …
What are some more things to do with an FPGA? One Instructables user, krosenfeld7, made a guide for an FPGA composer.
Who doesn’t love the classic game of tic-tac-toe? And now it can be made new and fresh with the Nexys 2 FPGA board!
Are you looking for a good project to do with your Analog Discovery? On the Digilent Forum, Alex loaded a few of them from students at Sri Vishnu Engineering College for Women in southeastern India.
Two California hotels tested autonomous service robots over a six-month period. Reviews from their customers were overwhelmingly positive (except when aforementioned customers were intoxicated). They will be rolling out their next wave of autonomous service robots, called the Relay.
Did you ever play the game Battleship as a child? I remember finding it incredibly fun. This weekend, I found a new take on it! The version on Instructables uses a breadboard, wires, and other electrical components. It’s designed to teach children the basics of breadboarding — and to have fun, of course!
In a previous post, I talked about how plasma can be used to build high-fidelity speakers. Plasma isn’t limited to only producing sound– it can also be used to record it. Being made up of physical particles, plasma can be affected by vibrations through the air. This means it is possible to build a plasma arc microphone using the proper circuit. This application is far less common than using a plasma arc for a speaker, but research has still been done on the subject.
One of our regular contributors to the forum let us know about an awesome project he worked on. He managed to use the Basys 3 with a low-cost ultrasound rangefinder.
Have you ever wanted to shoot lightning bolts out of your hands like the Sith do in Star Wars? Have you ever wanted to be immune to lightning strikes? These things sound impossible, but they actually aren’t. Specially designed suits are capable of making you immune to high voltages by redirecting the flow of current around you.
So, who’s excited about ECEDHA? We here at Digilent wanted something big and flashy to amaze everyone, so we put this together. We carry weatherproof strips of the WS2812 addressable LEDs in 1m lengths with 30 LEDs on each strip, so what better way to grab your attention than to build a display with 30 strips!
In science fiction, plasma-based technology is often included because it is perceived as futuristic and exotic. Referring to plasma as exotic is understandable, but the technology behind its creation is less so. Since the invention of electric circuits, it has been possible to easily create and control plasma using high voltages. It is pretty common knowledge that high voltages ionize the air producing plasma arcs. What is not-so-common knowledge is the fact that these arcs of plasma can be used to play music.
Recently, a user of our products posted a tutorial about using a chipKIT uC32 to remotely control an FM Radio. We always love to see our users creating cool projects and try to give space here not only to projects created by us at Digilent but also by you the user. This project does require the use of multiple components and could be a bit overwhelming to a beginner, but we encourage you to try it out if you so choose!
We are thrilled to announce our participation in the 23rd China International Industry Fair, which is currently underway at the prestigious National Convention and Exhibition Center (NECC) in Shanghai. Running …
We recently revamped a tutorial on the Digilent Reference site which details how to set up an LWIP echo server for Zynq-7000 boards: Getting Started with Zynq Servers. This post is …
In the dynamic landscape of electrical engineering education, adaptation to modern teaching tools is essential to provide students with the best learning experiences. A recent success story from Shandong Jianzhu …
