Hi seniors.


I'm trying to evaluate AD9517-4 using EVAL-AD9517-4 board and facing to a trouble.

At first, I tried to use example setting which put on ADI Web site; AD9517_4_EvalBoardExample_In20MHz_Out200MHz.stp.

# The file can be gotten from


But this setting file cause wrong phenomenon.

1. Around 230MHz wave output to OUT1 port (verified by Oscilloscope) but it should be 200MHz.

2. Part Number, where corner of lower right of AD9516/17/18 Evaluation Software, "AD9517-4" vary to "AD9517-3" by loading the example setting.(please see attached png file)

=> The evaluation software seem to recognize the board as AD9517-3...


I don't know what is wrong now, could you try it and point my wrong thing out?


Also I have concerned point.

PC could not find driver file first, so I searched the driver and adapted manually. The file is located C:\Program Files\Analog Devices\USB Drivers\LRF\ADI_CYUSB_LRF_x86.inf. Perhaps it may be wrong?
