How to fix bad EEPROM on EVAL-AD5933EBZ

Question asked by mjones on Nov 6, 2014

I inadvertently wrote a block of 0's to the EEPROM memory on an EVAL-AD5933 board and now Windows 7 is unable to associate a USB driver with it because it thinks the VID and PID are both 0 which it treats as a special error case.  Does anybody have a way of forcing Win7 to associate a driver to the EVAL board so I can re-gain communication with the board?  Or is there a utility that someone knows of that will allow me to connect to he EVAL board to re-set the EEPROM?

 

I've tried adding the following line to the .inf file but that doesn't seem to work:

 

%VID_0000&PID_0000.DeviceDesc%=CYUSB, USB\VID_0000&PID_0000

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

 

Thanks
