The Digilent Digital Electronics Board for NI ELVIS III provides hands-on, interactive experiments in digital logic. Students can use Multisim and online teaching resources to program the FPGA graphically to learn the fundamentals of digital electronics.
The NI Digital Systems Development Board (DSDB) was designed for educators to teach digital electronics. The board was designed around the Xilinx Zynq®-7000 family all programmable system-on-chip (SoC) architect. This ensures there is plenty of power for students to learn a wide range of topics ranging from simple combination logic to advanced digital systems and control.
NI Digital System Development Board
- Digital electronics teaching platform
- Programmable with Multisim, LabVIEW, and Vivado
- Integrates with NI ELVIS II/II+
- Zynq XC7Z020 FPGA • 8 LEDs, 8 slide switches, 4 push buttons
- Expansion connector • Capacitive touchscreen
- 3 PMOD connectors
The on-board Zynq-7Z020 is based on the Xilinx programmable system-on-chip (SoC) architecture. It contains a processing system (PS) consisting of a dual-core ARM® Cortex™ A9 and a programmable logic (PL) section. By integrating a PS and PL into one single device, you add system intelligence to the PS and at the same time have real-time data processing decisions made by the PL. The powerful Zynq chip is loaded with features, making it ideal for learning.
Programming the FPGA
You can program the DSDB using VHDL or Verilog language through the Vivado environment. The Vivado HL WebPACK software is free for students—the license and software installation are available from www.xilinx.com. You can also program the DSDB using LabVIEW FPGA, which is a graphical programming language based on a data flow paradigm. Students with no prior VHDL or Verilog knowledge can quickly develop applications by dragging-and-dropping IOs and connecting them to pre-built functions. From the LabVIEW environment, students can compile and program directly to the DSDB. Visit ni.com/labview for more information.
