Re: 200D RX2 ADC Overload

Erwin, The only way to determine your board version is to either open the radio and look (although I'm not certain the boards are revision marked) or to determine it based on it's behavior. If you use Bypass for external PureSignal feedback it is a Rev. 24 board. If you use Ext 1 for external PureSi...

"New Protocol" explained...

The "new protocol", aka Protocol 2, is a complete re-spin of the original firmware, with a new and substantially improved interface specification. You can find the specification well documented. It implements Gigabit Ethernet (only--no support for 100BASE-T at all at the radio Ethernet con...

Joe, At the risk of stating the obvious, the reason it is working for Phil and not you is because the timing is not being met across the entire population of radio hardware. As the firmware is becoming more and more complex, it would appear that the timing model in the version of Quartus that is bei...

Re: Current Status

The 100B is the 100W version of the 10E. Both use the Hermes 14-bit card.
