ACE does not recognize ADMV1014-EVALZ

Hi all, 


I have 9 ADMV1014-EVALZ but ACE (1.23.3085.133, 64 bits) does not recognize any of them. I installed the ACE ADMV1014-1014 plugin using the plug-in Manager, no problem.


When I connect the ADMV1014 board to the computer using the USB, the system (Windows Device Manager) recognizes it assigning the driver ADMV1014-05188 RevA but with an exclamation mark (!) showing there is a problem. I start ACE and nothing happens, ACE does not recognize the board, any of them. "Refresh Attached Hardware" button, no result. Nothing. When "Acquire hardware" on the ADMV1014 ACE plugin, I get "State = Unavailable". 


Then, I hypothesized that there is a problem with the ADMV1014 driver, so I download the ADMV1014 specific driver linked in its webpage (ADMV1014EvaluationBoardUSBDriver.zip, which contains a single file named ADR6780EvaluatonBoardUSBDriver). I installed the driver, and the system (Windows Device Manager) detects the boards as High-Speed DAC USB Evaluation Board (v2), but no exclamation marks. 


Then I start the ACE again , and still nothing. Followed all the instructions, installed an reinstalled 5 times, used 2 laptops, always same results. 
What I am doing wrong? My wild guess would be that there is something wrong with the drivers or ACE? I have a colleague of mine who installed the software 2 months ago and it works as a charm in his laptop. 


Any suggestions? 
Best, 


XB

  • Hi XB,

    Please try this work around for the drivers and also make sure the ACE version is the latest.

    __

    In order to install the drivers for the evaluation board, please go to the Drivers folder in the ACE installation folder -by default C:\Program Files (x86)\Analog Devices\ACE\Drivers.

     

    Launch SDPDrivers.exe and when prompted, select the ADI PIC option – see screenshot below:

     

    After installation of the drivers, you can connect the evaluation board to your machine.

    ACE should now be able to detect the evaluation board.
