I have an ADE7953 EVAL Z (rev C), and I followed all the steps for the installation with revH, but I can't connect to the Comm Port with the Evaluation Software. I followed all the steps for troobleshooting too, on the Device Manager i see the ADE Interface Board, and it says that the device is working properly. I tested it on a Windows XP VM, then a computer with Windows XP, and finally with a windows 10 in a VM with the driver attached on this topic, as this person seemed to have the same problem and solved it with this : https://ez.analog.com/energy-metering/f/q-a/30924/has-anyone-gotten-ade7953-eval-z-to-work-under-windows-10
But Even this would'nt work, always the same error, have to set it manually, then no options in the drop-down table "Port control manual". And even if I'm writting COM3 in it directly (I've seen it's this port in the Device Manager), can't do nothing even a simple reset, and all other thing such as "Active Energy", I got this message "The evaluation board did not respond. The COM port must be reset". Even following this doesn't change anything.
I haven't seen anything on this subject that could help me, and I have no any clu of what to do.
Thanks in advance.
Please send a picture of your eval board setup top view best detail and screen shots of the eval software screen and device manager.
Here's what I have :
Could you try SPI for me. My jumper settings are show below. I amusing windows enterprise 7 64 bit. and the board worked. There might be an issue with I2C.
Before you change to SPI can you see if there is any activity on the I2C lines.
I forgot to tell that i already tried SPI and UART configurations, none of them had worked, I just checked with an oscilloscope, there is no activity at all.
I think I have found the problem. It appears NIMAX is not installed. this can be downloaded from
