How do I use ACE software to transfer digital quantity to analog quantity continuously in AD5696

I bought the AD5696 evaluation board  EVAL-AD5686RSDZ and control board EVAL-SDP-CS1Z

,I can use ACE software to convert a digital quantity into analog quantity manually, but I need to convert digital quantity into analog quantity continuously and automatically, What should I do?

  • Hi,

    Unfortunately the functionalities of the evaluation software is limited. But you can use a microcontroller with the AD5696R no OS driver and connect it to the PMOD connector of the evaluation board.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I saw the page  AD5696R no OS driver and found  the evaluation board like this.

    but I bought the evaluation board is this.

    therefore ,I want to know if I can also connect YRDKRL78G13 to the PMOD connector of this evaluation board.If the PMOD connector of  this  evaluation board can be connected to the YRDKRL78G13, are the operations and the code is the same to the first evaluation board?

  • Hi,

    The AD5696R evaluation board shown in the no OS site is the old one and what you bought is the new one. 

    Nonetheless, the PMOD is still the same and you can use that to connect with YRDKRL78G13, same connections and code. But you may still need to reconfigure the microcontroller's peripherals and pin assignments accordingly.

  • Hi

    The PMOD of the board I bought has 12 pins like this.

     

    but the page  AD5696R no OS driver shows that only 6 pins are connected to the YRDKRL78G13.

    Therefore,  I only connect these 6 pins to YRDKRL78G13,is it enough ?

     

    Then, How do I reconfigure the microcontroller's peripherals and pin assignments? could you give me some advice and reference material? 

  • Hi,

    As there are only 6 pins connected to YRDKRL78G13, you need to manually configure A1, A0, RSTSEL, and GAIN pins of the device on the EVAL-AD5696RSDZ or, you can also connect it to YRDKRL78G13 which means you have to add pin definitions on the files.

    You also need to supply VIO externally, VDD can be supplied externally or use the PWRSEL of the evaluation board to select the supply.

    Since you are using the exact YRDKRL78G13, there's no need to reconfigure the peripherals and pin assignments as it is already in the drivers. You just need to use the defined functions as stated in the no OS wiki.
