Blue, my favourite color!
That's great news. Thanks for the updates!
The blue reminds me of those old iMac boards
Can you give some more details about the change "Made the USB port host-mode only as default build option"?
@kenichi Mine too!
Blue is good! Thanks:-)
@Anton We were having some issues booting from a USB drive and wanted to take the safe root. One of the issues was not having the required 100uF capacitor on the VBUS. All the Zynq boards we have reviewed so far all had build or jumper options for choosing between OTG and host mode.
I love blue boards, and Yay on the progress!
Nice one, well done :)
I can't wait to get mine!
Parallella plans became reality. Can't wait to play with it :)
pfffff..... blue..... booooring! I'd prefer mine in porky-pink! ;-)
"take the safe root"... ha, I geddit, clever!
I am so looking forward to see what can be done with that piece...
With the new ceramic capacitor - did you recheck that the different (lower) esr of ceramic is still OK?
Here some hints what I mean:
I love it :-) for me it can be even pink with red dots, sofar it is working well :-)
it's magnificent; scout's honor!
Love the blue ...
But also worried re the Tant => Cer capacitor change.
Tantalums damp resonances and so are good for decouplers.
Ceramic are higher Q. I like to use both, for best performance.
Glad there's progress!
Seems like they aren't meeting the small size as initially desired :)
The strips on the top and bottom break off, I think.
Nice! Glad to hear things are moving a little better. Thank you for your diligence.
Thanks for the updates!
Anybody else going to work on haskell (ghc) support for these systems?
@all Thanks for the encouragement and feedback about the color. Looks like we made the right choice!
@beau, @andres The caps being switched out were 100uF decoupling capacitors for the Zynq supplies. We "should" be OK baesd on calculations and reference design comparisons.
The good news is that the new boards are on schedule and will arrive tomorrow.
The big "announcement" has been delayed by a few more days, unfortunately the timing is largely out of our control.
