EVAL-7993 not functioning - "Firmware Not Loaded!" error

I just received the EVAL-7993 and have installed the software and restarted my PC.   The application starts up and throws and message box indicating 'Firmware Not Loaded!.

I then hit the "Load Firmware" button on the GUI and the message box comes up 'Firmware Not Loaded!"

It looks like the software for the Cypress chip has a bug (show stopper).   Can someone walk me thru the steps to workaround the problem?

I did default install (used all the paths suggested by ADI) and there were no errors during the install.

Thanks,

Thom

  • I installed off the CD.    I've shipped the board to a college student for his senior project and he ran the installer and got a different error - something about Labview runtime engine not found.   He has labview 2014 installed on his laptop.    It would be really great if we could get some source code to work with - this EVAL board looks like the it's got a few host side software bugs that I'd rather not get bogged down in.

    Is there anyone at ADI who has interfaced the AD7993 or AD7994 to a processor and can share some sample source code?

    Thanks,
