Hi, I'm using the ACE software talking to an AD9162_FMCB_EBZ card, but I can't read/set any of the registers in the on-board AD9508 divider chip. Reads always return 0xFF, any ideas what could be wrong?
Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for letting us know this issue!
We'll fix this issue shortly and will upload a new plugin. Till then, to read back the register values, use macro tools:
Assuming both ACE and DPG software are connected and the board is running, do the following within ACE:
However, these are the values that ACE is writing to the AD9508 registers and not the read values. To be able to read register values, we need to wait for a fix for ACE to be released soon
Thanks for the reply - I'll give it a go...
Oh I see, this only allows me to see what was written - so Ican be confident these values are being written, correct? Ijust can't read them back at the to check?
Sure, using this method you can just write to it but you can't read back the values. If now communication errors happen, most probably, what you write you should be able to read back.
