I recently started to evaluating the use of the ADE7913 ADC for measuring current and voltage within the scope of a research project for the automotive industry.
I acquired a ADE7913 EVAL-Z + EVAL-SDP-CB1Z combo for this purpose. However, when I launch the ADE7913_eval_software I get an information that no board is connected.
I started doing some diagnosis and these are my observations so far:
Regarding option 2, upon checking the input voltage for the regulator in the SDP INTERFACE BOARD I see a lot of variation every couple of seconds. It seems that the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z has not enough power to feed the setup.
Does anyone had a similar experience and provide feedback on how fixed the issue?
Could yo please
1. reinstall the driver. The board needs to appear as Analog Devices System Demonstration Platform SDP-B
2. verify that you are correctly powering the board via the USB (TP45)
Hi ValeriaToff. I did all that before posting the quesiton here. I solved the problem with a workaround: I used an additional 5V power supply on the test pins of the SDP INTERFACE BOARD. This way the board is properly detected by the OS.
