DE2 component

Hello all, 

 

First time poster. I recently bought DE2 board for my FYP. I received it from Terasic 10 days ago and have just began using it. To my horror a voltage regulation component is missing, see below.

I live in Ireland which isn't ideal in terms of sourcing components. I have contacted Terasic in relation to this but as it is now Saturday I imagine I'll be waiting a few days for a reply. The component itself is a voltage regulator: AME1117CCCTZ.

I cannot find this online. Time is a massive factor. 

Am curious of anybodies opinions on the matter and what course of action they'd take. 

I'm very grateful, 

Thanks, 

Cian

Hi Cian, 

 

You should have received our feedback by now, indicating the component TC8 was not installed intentionally. Rest assured it is NOT a defective board. 

 

We hope you enjoy using our DE2 board and good luck with your final year project !

Hi Cian, 

 

No worries. I'm actually glad that you brought it up to give us a chance to explain what's going on here, in which we should have done right from the beginning.
