Using the Expansion header.

Hello, I'm using the DE2 board and currently trying to control a stepper motor but im having some trouble using the expansion header. The motor needs 5V input and i read in the manual that the header can support that however, i can only find a 3.3V supply.  

 

Any info or help would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thanks.

Hi, 

DE2 Board provides two 40-pin expansion headers such as DC +5V (VCC5), DC +3.3V (VCC33). 

Refer “4.6 Using the Expansion Header” from the following DE2_User Manual_1.6,

Let me know if this has helped resolve the issue you are facing or if you need any further assistance. 

 

Best Regards
