I am trying to get the 12 Bit ADC on the Evaluation Board DC1532A-L (which houses the LTC2263-12) working with the Microzed Board connected via Microzed FMC Carrier Card. However, I am reading only two or three different numbers no matter what signal I connect to both inputs of the DC1532A-L. If at any interest: those two numbers are 0b100000000110 and 0b100000000101. The only way to see a different reading was to disable the adc via SPI.
So I thought I would use the Test Pattern functionality that is programmable via SPI on the LTC2263-12. To enable the test pattern one has to write to register A3 and A4, but writing to register A3 and A4 is not effective (which can be seen in the screenshots below).
Suprisingly writing to and reading from registers A1 and A2 works without a problem (the following screenshots show writing to and reading from register A1):
I solved it myself. I was assuming the data bits, which are called A0, A1, A2, ... etc. have each to be set to one to address a register, i.e. if I want to write to register A2 I have to set address bit…
I solved it myself. I was assuming the data bits, which are called A0, A1, A2, ... etc. have each to be set to one to address a register, i.e. if I want to write to register A2 I have to set address bit A2 to one. The fact, that the registers and the address bits share the same name was misleading, at least for me.
The correct addresses are A1: 01h, A2: 02h, A3: 03h, ... etc.
Ok, let me know if you have any other questions.
