AD9517-0 Evaluation board to drive a prototype board populated with an AD9517-0

Hi everyone,

I am trying to use a "AD9517/PCBZ (Rev B)" evaluation board to drive an AD9517-0 installed in another board designed by us.

The intention is to use the "AD9516/17/18 Evaluation Software, Version 1.1.0" to control/program the AD9517-0 mounted in our board. To do that, we removed the evaluation board AD9517-0 and wire the signals from connector P1 to our board.


Who can I be sure that the communication with the AD9517-0 is correct?

Is it any thing that prevents this setup to work?

Any advise will be really appreciated.

Best regards

GuiX

  • Hi Kyle,

    Thank you for your support!

    I follow the instructions to install the new firmware but the Firmware updater can not see the evaluation board. I follow the instructions:

    1.- Download and install the “USBEvBdProgrammerSetup.zip” file.

    2.- Before applying power, pull the S1 jumper. It may be labeled “EEPROM ENABLE” on older eval boards.

    3.- Apply power to the board. (This puts the Cypress chip in its default mode.)

    4.- Replace the S1 jumper. This re-establishes the connection between the EEPROM and Cypress USB controller chip.

    5.- Connect the USB cable. The "USBSTAT" LED (CR1) next to the USB connector will not blink.

    6.- Run the Evaluation Board Programmer software.

    At point 5, the computer (Windows XP) ask for the driver, I follow steps described in "DriverGuide.mht" document but the drivers sould not be suitable for the Windows XP because the system can not found device asociatedto that driver.

    Any advice?
