Waveforms 2015 is the newest release of our powerful multi-instrument software application. Like the previous version of Waveforms, it seamlessly connects to our USB portable oscilloscope, logic analyzer, and function generator products such as Electronics Explorer and both versions of the Analog Discovery, adding full Mac OS X and Linux support. This software, coupled with the hardware instrumentation, brings a powerful suite of instruments to enable analog and digital design on your personal computer. Designed with a clean, easy to use graphical interface for each instrument, Waveforms 2015 makes it easy to acquire, visualize, store, analyze, produce and reuse analog and digital signals.
Arty Z7 APSoC Zynq-7000 Development Board for Makers and Hobbyists
The Arty Z7 is a ready-to-use development platform designed around the Zynq-7000™ All Programmable System-on-Chip (AP SoC) from Xilinx. The Zynq-7000 architecture tightly integrates a dual-core, 650 MHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor with Xilinx 7-series Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) logic. This pairing grants the ability to surround a powerful processor with a unique set of software defined peripherals and controllers, tailored by you for whatever application is being conquered. The design process is very straightforward and provides a systematic path between defining your custom peripheral set and bringing it's functionality up to a Linux OS running on the processor. Digilent provides a number of materials and resources for the Arty Z7 that will get you up and running with this process quickly.
Digilent produces a variety of high-speed JTAG and SPI USB2 programming solutions that work seamlessly with all Xilinx tools. Our free Adept software allows custom applications to drive JTAG and SPI operations, and to exchange data with target systems.
The Digilent HD video processing board, powered by Xilinx latest 7 series FPGA, is targeted for high definition (HD) video acquisition, processing, and display applications. The built-in memory makes full HD video input and output stream seamlessly over the on-board mini Display or HDMI connectors. An FMC connector and four Digilent Pmod ports allow the addition of peripherals to further expand the functionality. An open source DisplayPort IP, created by a Digilent community member, is available. The video targeted reference design enables an immediate start to software, firmware and hardware development. With the High Level Synthesis in Xilinx Vivado free Webpack, users can accelerate the HD video processing design and implement it on Digilent hardware platform.

Pmods are small I/O interface boards that offer an ideal way to extend the capabilities of programmable logic and microcontroller boards. They allow sensitive signal conditioning circuits and high-power drive circuits to be placed where they are most effective – near sensors and actuators. Pmods enable more effective design partitions by routing analog signals and power supplies only where they are needed and away from digital controller boards.
