Advantiv Video Evaluation Software (AVESBlue)
The application remains available for legacy purposes.
Advantiv Video Evaluation Software 2.05 Release 12/11/12
This release supports for the Advantiv ADV7612-7511, ADV7619-7511, ADV7842-7511, ADV7850 evaluation boards. Also included is the new fully functional, integrated yet stand-alone EDID editor. This program is intended to be used with Advantiv Video Evaluation Boards or with any hardware using an Aardvark USB to I2C adapter from Total Phase.
It can also be used as a basic terminal for commands with the Advantiv Video Evaluation Boards.
No hardware at all is required to use this software, it can also be used to view the register maps of the supported parts in an interactive way.
The following part XMLs have been verify however other XML file should work as well:
One "Setup_AVES2.msi" installs the AVES program with short cuts on the desktop and in Program->Analog Devices->AVES.
The other "Setup_EEdit.msi" program installs the EDID editor. I recommend installing it in the same path as AVES was installed in or just allow it to default into the default paths.
This installer will attempt to install .NET Framework 4 Client Profile.
If it can not then this framework can be found at:
All users should read the Software User manual. Although this program was designed to be similar to the DVP Evaluation software there are some functional differences.

No. This software simply lets you read and write registers. Video can't come from serial/USB.
There should be an XML for ADV7610 though the one for ADV7611 or ADV7612 would be fine-- they have the same register map.
Does this evaluation software enable sample video to be output from the evaluation board sourced from the USB/serial port?
Are there other XML files available for the likes of the ADV7610? Since there appears to be an interface via TotalPhase Aardvark, having an XML for the ADV7610 would allow me to evaluate this part on my board, I hope?
Or perhaps the XML is something that can be hand edited to reflex the correct features or registers etc?
This page describes software that works with many eval boards. Schematics for evaluation boards on the pages of the evaluation boards.
