1) Has ADI got a dedicated SDR development category.
My questions look like they will be split between Linux S/ware drivers and FPGA reference Designs.
I am developing an SDR application on the ADi RF SOM.
I got through the Zynq & Altera SoC Quick Start Guide [Analog Devices Wiki] without issue until I got to the section about Accessing Files. This section was posted 12 Dec 2014 16:28 · mhennerich.
I couldn't understand what was trying to be achieved here, or waht connections were being made to what.
At this stage, I had the ADI RF SOM plugged into the internet via the company's (DHCP served) network and had completed all the updates to the Linux Kernel & Tools on the SOM
Accessing Files (on What ???) - From Windows hosts
The only thing you need to do is:
1. Plug in a network cable (network with DHCP) Q. To What - a windows machine ?
or between a Widnows machine & the SOM ?
2. On the console type
ipconfig This must be on a windows machine ? 3. Now you know your IP address (inet addr:XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX) Yes fine.
4. On Windows Internet Explorer type following URL \\XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
or use the Map Network Drive functionality the path is: \\XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX\ADI Linux Image
This is what I don't understand at all. What does this do ? What is it trying to do...?
Is this section emant to show how to establish a connection between a Windows PC and the RF SOM directly...?
Where/ what does the directory name ADI LINUX appear from ? e.g. It is not on the SD card.
Can this instruction be clarified please - with further and fuller text.
In other instructions (from MATLAB) I have successfully used IP address 192.168.3.2 ( SOM defualt) on the ADI RF SOM and used a second private ethernet connection from the PC to ADI RF SOM ( fixing the PC's second NIC at 192.168.3.1) to get the MATLAB demo workin for the ADI RF SOM.
I also noticed that although I could ping the ADI RF SOM from the Windows machine, Niether the ADI nor MATLAB linux allowed me to ping back from the ADI RF SOM to the Windows Host - Is there a way to change Linux to allow this. I have come accross it before, but can't remember what the problem was or how it was resovled.
