Initial Hardware Tests I've started to learn my way around this board - it has a tremendous amount of capability/functionality.  My plan is to use the VCU Design example (v2018.3) to learn the board (SOM + Carrier) and test the functionality that I will need to implement my roadtest project.   The design is well documented on GitLab:  v2018.3_vcu_uz7ev_cc-06212019 There is a pre-built SD card image which makes it easy to get up and running.   For initial hardware testing I ...
I was fortunate to have been selected to test a second Avnet UltraZed-EV Starter Kit that Randall and the sponsor added to the original roadtest.  Things got off to an inauspicious start as a train derailment somewhere between Chicago and Portland (OR) delayed the UPS shipment of my kit.   I finally received it last night (06/22/2020) at around 7pm.   I am particularly interested in testing the integrated H.264/H.265 video codec unit (VCU) component of this kit and eventually ...
Introduction Double Pulse Software Test Setup Test Results MOSFET Comparison PWM Signal Tests Conclusions Introduction  My third and final test on the Tektronix AFG31052 Arbitrary Waveform Generator is to investigate the use of the Double Pulse software for testing the performance of MOSFET and IGBT devices. Naturally, I have to try and build in some aspect of an insulation tester into as many of the blogs I write on element14 and the main voltage generation cir ...
I did not see this road test application until it was too late,   Cool Tools 2020: USB Soldering Iron     But I have a cheap, us$8.00, USB-powered soldering iron that I bought at the Microcenter store in the US.  https://www.microcenter.com/product/484630/eclipse-enterprise-portable-usb-soldering-iron My box says it is Pro's Kit brand, model # SI-168U. Microcenter lists it as Eclipse brand for some reason.  It claims to reach 480 C (+/- 10% -- 10% of what?  48 ...
