AD5060 Eval LabVIEW driver not working.

Hi,

I'm using the AD5060 Eval system and all works well when I use the supplied driver application, but when I switch to the LV driver I cannot get anything out of the device. The LV driver is not reporting any errors and it does find the board. I hooked up a logic analyzer to the 3 TP's on the eval board and can see the SPI transactions if I use the application but nothing if I use LV. I also want to drive the device with dynamic data... sine etc. rather than just set points hence wanting to use the LV driver. Has anyone seen this behavior from the LV driver and have they managed to get it working correctly?

Thanks,

Nick

  • Hi Miguel,

    I was looking to be able to generate both ac and dc signals in software but cannot do either through the LV driver. I realize that the eval board is not really designed to perform ac signal generation and there is not much control via the USB interface but I'm just looking at a proof of concept at the moment so being able to send what is in effect a series of different dc settings to the device as fast as USB allows would be good enough. I did notice that there is a bulk transfer function in the dll might this help or is this something completely different?

    Thanks for your help,
