Is there a Windows 7, 64 bit driver available for the Inertial Sensor Evaluation System?
There is a driver available for the 64 bit Windows 7. This is not included with the CD yet but it will be posted on our website soon for MEMs products that support the Inertial Sensor Evaluation System.
To install the driver, here are the instructions you should follow:
Please use the drivers at http://www.silabs.com/Support%20Documents/Software/CP210x_VCP_Win_XP_S2K3_Vista_7.exe
Once you install it, if you’ve already tried to install the ISEB_USB driver on the CD, you may have to manually force it to a new driver. In case you do, here’s how:
1. Plug the sensor board into the computer (via USB)2. In Start Menu, right-click on Computer and in the menu that pops up click Manage3. In the “Do you want to allow…?” choose Yes4. The Device Manager window will pop up. In the menu on the left, click on the Device Manager option.5. A list will open up and somewhere in it (either under Ports or under Other Devices) you’ll have an item called ADI Inertial Sensor Evaluation Board with a little exclamation mark on the icon. 6. Right click on it and select “Update Driver Software”7. Choose “Browse my computer for driver software”, then “Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer”, then click the “Have Disk…” button in the bottom right8. Browse to C:\SiLabs\MCU\CP210x\Windows_XP_S2K3_Vista_7\slabvcp.inf, click open9. In the “Model” box, you will see an option that says “Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge”. Select it and click Next. You’ll get a rather scary warning which you can just say yes to.
For those who are evaluating iSensor products (ADIS16xxx), there are two evaluation systems in use: ADISUSB and EVAL-ADIS. The ADISUSB only supports 32-bit systems but the EVAL-ADIS supports 32- and 64-bit systems. The drivers for both options are contained in a single driver installation file, which is available on the EVAL-ADIS web site (www.analog.com/EVAL-ADIS), under the SOFTWARE AND TOOLS tab.
When I installed EVAL-ADIS driver on my 32-bit Windows 7 labtop, the driver was successfully installed.
But when I did the same on my 64-bit Windows 7 PC, the driver was not successfully installed. My PC recognized EVAL-ADIS as a unknown device. I wonder if there seems a problem with 64-bit Windows 7 driver for EVAL-ADIS.

I am sorry to hear that this has not gone smoothly for you. I have a Windows 7/64-bit machine and this has worked smoothly for me. Which version of the driver are you using? The latest driver can be found at the following web site: http://www.analog.com/en/evaluation/EVAL-ADIS/eb.html#SOFTWARE_AND_TOOLS
