Configuring SDP-S as SPI interface via USB

Category: Hardware
Product Number: EVAL-SDP-CS1Z
Software Version:

The product page for the SDP-S states:

  • USB to Serial Engine
  • 1 xsmall footprint 120 Pin Connector
  • Configurable interface ( SPI, I2C, GPIO)
  • USB 2.0 interface to the PC

I currently have a EVAL-ADF4371 and would like to communicate via the SDP-S USB connection directly with the ADF4371 from my own code. I have only seen examples of hard connecting to the boards SPI pins to speak with the ADF4371 registers in Linux, but I'm able to use the ACE software in windows with no issues. There must be an interface for connecting to the device.

I looked in libiio and am not able to get it to recognize the SDP-S or the ADF4371 via a USB connection.

Does anyone know a work around for this or know how to configure the SDP-S?
