I am having trouble connecting to an ADAR1000-EVALZ board using your provided GUI. I have confirmed that the SDP-S board that I am using is being recognized by my compute. The drivers are up to date and your SDP EEPROM programmer that I found does connect to the device. However, the version of the ADAR1000 control board software that is currently available online is unable to detect the SDP-S module when following your user guide. Is there something else that I can do?

Thank you for your time,


  • Did you reprogram the EEPROM by chance?  That, and not having the USB cable connected from the PC to the SDP-S board, are the only things I can think of that would make the control software not able to detect the SDP-S. 

  • For the benefit of other users, we found that the ADAR1000 software contains a library that can cause issues with Windows "FIPS".

    One fix for this is the following:

    Create a file named ADAR1000.exe.config in the same directory as your install of the ADAR1000 eval software - C:\Program Files (x86)\Analog Devices\EV-ADAR1000 in my case.

    Open the file for editing and add the following


    <?xml version="1.0"?>



            <enforceFIPSPolicy enabled="false"/> 




    Save the file and try running the program again.
