I have a new ADRV9009_W/PCBZ eval kit and the EVAL-TPG-ZYNQ3 ZC706 w/XC7Z045 FFG900-SOC.
I have downloaded the transceiver evaluation software Talise_GUI_V6.0-3-6-0-6
I connected the hardware per the user guide UG-1378
As received, the SW11 was miss-set. After correcting this and verifying all the jumpers and installing the SD card, I was able to power the unit and connect to my PC.
I ran the evaluation software and set the ad9528 to the default setting:
Ref Clk 30.72 MHz
Vcxo Freq 122.88
I connected a synthesized signal generator at 30.72 MHz and +5 dBm.
Using the ADRV9009 default settings, I clicked the “Program” button.
I received the following warning message “AD9528 Clock not Synchronized”
I repeated all the steps above and programmed the AD9528:
Ref Clk 122.88 MHz
I connected a synthesized signal generator at 122.88 MHz and +5 dBm.
The progress bar began to move but halted with the message:
INIT CAL ERROR
“The following error occurred during initialization: ERROR;initErrCal=2, init ErrCode=4, initErrMsg=TIA Init Cal: Error during TIA tuner calibration-Rx”
I repeated the whole process above with a 122.8 MHz reference and used ADRV9009 settings from the Analog Devices Demo Video:
Device clock: 122.88 MHz
RX Chan: Rx1,Rx2 Enabled
RX Profile: Rx 200MHz, IQ rate 245.76, Dec4
Tx Profile: Tx 200/450 IQ rate 491.52 MHz
Obs. Chan: Observation Rx1
Observation Profile: ORx 450 MHz, IQ rate 491.52 MHz
Initiating programming caused the progress bar to move a bit and then stop with the message:
INIT CAL ERROR
I have no RF inputs connected.
I am suspicious of the AD9528 setup problem. If it is showing a false lock and is producing a noisy clock, would it prevent the calibration from performing properly?
Yes, if the REF_CLK is not proper then cals can fail. It might happen that the board is damaged, so you can check for any physical damage. You can bypass PLL1 and directly feed ref_clk.
Was this board working previously? or you just got it?
